The shipping container stack is complete! If you are interested to visit the site, here is a map. Please be aware that this is private property AND a construction site. Posting the location does not constitute and invitation to enter the property. Don’t park all over the neighbor’s yards, or anything silly like that. Please respect the property and the neighborhood.
The shipping container stack was a success. The videos, blow-by-blow, are at theUSTREAM Page. But you should start with the videos below; introductions by Stephen, the Architect and by Tom, the Owner.

Please check them out (forgive the adds!) and of course there are progress photos from the 3 days here and here. The “Project Page, with facts, the rendering and exploded view is here.
Tom’s home is taking shape. The mass is now apparent on the site. The sun has cast its brightness and shadow on its corrugated surfaces. We have witnessed and captured our own shadows here with it. The last two containers will be placed tomorrow.
