Slow Progress

1/22/09 Since the last post, Johnny and his crew have finished welding the containers together. Since the roof will not be installed until later, the containers had to be sealed where they joined. It took two tries but the second effort was tight.

Next the container walls were cut out where not needed. We now, more or less, have one big room. The next step will be to put in the interior divider walls that will define each room.

We are now debating whether it will be more cost effective to insulate with exterior spray foam or with interior conventional stud wall and insulation. We are trying to understand the pros and cons of "ceramic" paint, and whether to use inside, outside, both, or not at all.
We are also trying to understand the best and most efficient way to install exterior windows and doors.
