Fox Residence Open House 02 25 2012

Despite the harsh cold of winter morning, the open house was a success. Over 500 + Gainesville residences came to support the container house. The Open House started strong with guided tours by the architect and owner. Tours were short but elaborate, roughly 20 minutes each. Visitors were informed of spatial programmings and sustainable design concepts of the project. With minimal restrictions [safety purposes], visitors were free to explore independently within the three story structure. The itinerary of tours ended on the roof top deck with visitors gazing over downtown Gainesville wondering what future has in store for container constructions.

Here are some pictures from the Open House.

Installation of Glass Door Railing + Closure of Roof Top

The deadline is rapidly approaching. Every one is passionately rushing to complete their tasks.Installation of glass door railings were effortless.

Due to slight offsets of containers’ roof beams a narrow opening was left between the units. To abide the harsh rain and storm of Florida, a SAS [Styrene Butadiene Styrene] modified roofing system was installed to resist water penetration.

Here are some pictures of the installation process.
