The idea was a simple one — to take shipping containers and convert them into low cost housing.
Then the project sort of took a modern direction, when the people I was with and I l earned how much money there was in the Tiny House craze.
All of us decided instead to go 50/50 on our final units, providing some at the lowest possible cost for people who need it, and the other half with more amenities, jacked up prices, for the dabbling millennials. All of us had over eighty shipping containers, and they all needed to be refurbished, set up with plumbing, electric, and Heating and Air Conditioning systems. I was the lead Heating and Air Conditioning tech for the project, and coincidentally I was the only Heating and Air Conditioning tech on the project, so I put in a lot of hours for a lot of weeks. All of us didn’t want to split corners, the people I was with and I wanted the best possible product so the people I was with and I could sell them for the best prices, so each device had its own Heating and Air Conditioning idea on the roof. There were a series of ductworks along the edges of the roof that lead to a series of air vents in the sides of the container. It took many weeks just to finish the first 6 Heating and Air Conditioning installations, because care about I said the people I was with and I weren’t chopping any corners. When it was all said and done, the ductwork paint job was so fantastic it blended in with the container. Additional ductwork covered up the cables and wires that gave the device power. With all of the nuts and bolts of electricity and weather conditions control on the exterior, the interior of the container was neat and spacious.
