Have I stopped on shipping container homes?

Things may appear a bit quiet lately but its all good to be honest except the cause! What happened is prices got to a point where I couldn’t see it currently being viable to buy one as it strained my budget too much to the point I couldn’t complete to sell the first one to buy the second. So being practical skipped it for a few months moving to things we need for the workshop as well as the apartments I am currently constructing here in Cebu, Philippines. What is happening instead of buying an expensive container and struggling through with trying to finish it to sell on a shoestring budget I have started to put together a shopping list of tools and machinery to allow rapid conversion once we get things in full swing. At the same time I have decided to abandon selling unfinished containers simply down to the fact the sellers are greedy and if I am being ripped off I don’t want to rip you off so advise go look for yourself then I am not the one over charging.

Currently the shopping list will consist of :-

  • Table saw
  • Router table (Will build)
  • Air compressor + tools
  • Welding machine
  • Cross cut wood saw (we already have one for metal)
  • New drills

Not a big list but an expensive one, ideally though the tools will be offering a better finish on many parts of the internal fittings as I was a cabinet maker/carpenter previously so being able to construct some things like under drawers for chairs and other furniture allowing maximum storage space as well as other useful things for within the units. I am currently taking caravan designs onboard as they offer the maximum amount of practical use for the minimum of space. So although the site has gone a bit slow doesn’t mean I have forgotten!
