Bad Blogger

120 gallon Propane tank being delivered kept the container livable over the winter, and vost about $450 for the season.

Im alive and in good health, and should get a F for keeping everyone up to date, so I do apologize.  The truth of the matter is I pretty much hibernated for the winter, and my nest egg got depleted a little bit, so went into survival mode just paying for the basics. 

The good news is winter is well over, and starting tomorrow I have once again become gainfully employed. Well part time at least don't wanna rush back into the work force to fast. So hopefully I can get going on some more long anticipated projects, and keep you all up to date!

 Direct vent furnace. Uses a lot more propane, but doesnt burn the oxygen on the inside of the container which is rather important in a tight space!
 30000 btu furnace
 Lesson learned burned barrels will ignite until the paint is burnt off
 Ginger is good too! She has even found herself a boyfriend down the road who comes up for the occasional visit
Still a rabbit chasing maniac.

So all has been well in the container home kept me warm and dry over the winter, well mostly dry there is a bit of a condensation issue, which is at the top of the list of my projects.

Thanks for visiting!

Good Day!

  4. Great to hear from you! Everything sounds good - container living looks like it's working out well for you. Condensation... I wonder if a humidifier would work if you have enough solar to support it during the appropriate times. Congrats on the (part-time) job. I agree, don't rush back into the workforce. :)

    1. Someone has suggested a vapor barrier who owns a container so that'll be my next step. Even part time is a pain lol

  5. Thanks for letting us know your doing well.
