Hey everyone, I wasn't sure if this was the right section to put this in since it will mostly be about building the house to start with. Admins if it's not please feel free to move it. I've been off the forum for a while but been very busy. I have since bought 45 acres with 13 acres being pasture with the rest all hardwoods and a few pines. The property also has a very wide creek that flows through it,a spring fed stream and a spring fed watering hole. The wife and I have decided that we will homestead the property. We will have a few cows, chickens, a couple pigs and the rabbits we already raise. We decided to build the house from 4 shipping containers. It will be all one story, 2700 sqft total with a 6' wide wrap around porch. I have already started constructing the house and i am chronologging the build on my blog for those who are interested on the step by step process. I will also be posting updates on here, just not in as much detail.
