Lots of things are happening at the Bright Container House! Take a look at some of the work:
After the last three containers arrived, Tyler and Matt began cutting the openings in between the containers and grinding them smooth. The exterior openings wont be cut until right before the spray foam and wafer board is up, so it stays dry… (Lesson Well Learned)
The opening for the stairway was cut out of the floor of the container and braced with 6 inch angle iron. (Here is Matt conquering that task)
The insulation was sprayed on the bottom half of the containers, using an open cell foam. The open cell foam has better sound deadening properties then other types of insulation, and has an equivelant R-Value of 40. (pretty dang good in layman’s terms.)
Wafer board is up:
Holes were made through the concrete, using this core driller, to allow plumbing vents and air conditioning lines to pass through.
Plumbing was roughed in for the upstairs bathroom and vents for downstairs were tied into one. (Here is a picture of some of the plumbing, I’ll add more once I figure out where those pictures went)
Square tubing was bolted to the bottom floor by drilling through the concrete and steel beams. The containers then set on top of the tubing and will be welded into place.
The Crane truck arrived early last Thursday morning to set our last containers

Manuevering it into postion.
Matt using his manly sledgehammer force to bump it into place..
Now multiply these steps by 3…
Thanks to lots of family and friends for making all this possible. (My mom and Sheilah were also there just not pictured)
If you are interested in knowing any more of the nitty gritty details, feel free to email Tyler at Tylerbright@me.com.
Our bottom story windows are currently being installed, so check back to see those exciting photos! Also, I will try to start updating weekly now since a lot is happening quickly. (but who really knows with me)
