Our first shipping container roof is really coming together! In this episode, we do tons of painting, install the sub-fascia and fascia, and begin laying the roof deck with the zip system. “When a problem comes along… you must ZIP IT! ” -Dr. Evil

  1. Hi
    We you both fortunate enough to get that piece of property from one of your parents or are you being allowed to build on one of your parents property?

  2. I enjoy watching you both working together A+
    I've also been studying this and scanning all codes that allow this as residential use, how do you plan on finishing the interior?,,thank you both!

  3. I look forward to seeing your videos more than any other. Building a container home has it's issues, but you can solve them as you build, I want you to suceed and I expect the outcome will be beautiful and you both will be very proud of your accomplisment. You guys are funny and you make it fun to watch. Living in a tin barn with ladybugs looking to get in every crevice takes guts. I'm a Louisiana cajun. hope you are dressing warm, go Saints, Please keep up what you are doing it really is wonderful.

  4. 8 & 4ft center…8 & 4ft center….8 & 4ft center… If anyone is going to any building with sheet material please always follow this rule (Google it) it will save you lots of long cuts…

    Great job guys nice to see the shirts still making an appearance 😉

  5. Hello from Thailand. You guys should make a playlist starting from the beginning of the project. It will be more convenience to watch step by step.
    Thanks for making and sharing this great and very inspired series. You are doing very excellent jobs. You deserve million likes

  6. Not counting land, what's your estimate what it will cost to finish? I'm debating if I can afford to go this route or just buy a home..I kind of like the ideal of a container home

  7. I love watching you guys work, especially you Mackenzie you are so funny, sure do brighten up my day the two of you, but you did get him on overcut wood piece, he got a little embarrassed but it reminded me of myself I did it plenty of times doing the same thing. You guys are awesome and love your build can't wait to see it done you guys are a awesome team wish there was more people like this in the world.🙏💯😎

  8. Zip system is great, I changed from the osb plywood and felt. It is a little bit more expensive, but cuts labor drastically. Just tape the seams. If you go with the red sheets, you don't have to used H clips. Its thicker.

  9. The trees swaying in the wind I see in the background of the long shots of the building make me wonder how long it will be before the tree next to the house falls upon the roof. The trees all appear to be about the same size as the one you dragged away in an earlier vidio. It would be unfortunate if the tree fell upon the house the day after you complete your construction.

  10. The shorts you are wearing look like my favorite sweatshirt that I got 58 years ago. My wife had tried to throw it out but I have prevailed and still have the shirt. Some folk just don't understand comfort.

  11. The baby donkey is so cute and curious!! Adorable. Love watching the progress on your house. We just found your channel this week and have been binge watching to catch up! 😀

  12. Every time I see you, I can't believe how much you have become in my life, and I look at you and realize how much God loves me because he gave me the two most beautiful people in the world to watch you.

  13. Y'all are doing an amazing job! I wish I knew someone who had some land and who could help me build my dream container home, but I'm older and also frail and live by myself, so my dream is fading fast.

  14. It does all the graphics one would need to display an idea to a container home lover. containar.homes Easy. Effective. Must have. I especially enjoyed the auto-roofing option. It made a long story short, and did it with amazing lines.

  15. Gotta be honest… Ive had delusions of wanting to do something very similar to what you've done here and I very much would like to DIY it as much as possible. I just don't see how it can be done working a traditional job. If I may, how long did you guys save to be able to not only buy the materials, but also afford the time sink?
