Installing Ikea Kitchen In Shipping Container Home

Ikea Kitchen installation

Eventually the kitchen installation is going in and I had heard it was difficult to put these units together but so far so good its been pretty easy. It does take time to make sure things are level and lined up but its getting there. The refrigerator is supposed to be turning up next week and I hope the kitchen is finished in time for its arrival.

When I was researching the construction of shipping container home projects I was disappointed that there was little information on the conclusion of projects and I am beginning to see why. Its the end of the project or second fix as its called in construction that is time consuming. Putting the concrete floor or the framing may seem like major steps in the construction but then seem minor milestones compared to the hassles and effort going in to installing things like flooring, kitchen cabinets or painting trim. The garage apartment is an extension of the container house and I will be getting back to that as soon as I can with some updates more frequently.

Ikea Kitchen Cabinets For Shipping Container Home

The new Ikea kitchen cabinets have really finished off the kitchen, only downside was some of the parts are missing for the horizontal cupboards. This is stopping me from finishing the final installation of the glass doors for them. Ikea though are shipping the parts direct to me from Sweden and they should be here by the end of next week. The refrigerator and microwave though have arrived and I will be installing the microwave tomorrow.

Cove Park artists shipping container retreat

Cove park is a centre for established artists and located on the west coast of Scotland in a tranquil 50 acre rural site.

In 2002 Container site made these three accommodation modules as artist retreats giving them wide opening glass doors and grassed roofs that blend in with the environment around them. The balcony area reaches out onto a lake with views of Loch Long in the distance. After the success of the first 3 modules another 6 were added to the project.
