  1. It’s hard not to be completely in love with the design and construction of this amazing shipping container home. Even more impressive than the home though, is Jaimie and Dave, who pushed through some tremendous challenges to make their dream come true. This is a story about finding joy, even in adversity. We hope you enjoy this weeks video! With love, Bryce & Rasa

  2. we are in the early planning stages of our container home in Australia and can take a couple of things from this and use it in our design. I especially like how they have used the container doors on the upper deck. Our plan is a U shaped container home with upper bedrooms and outdoor decks and middle ground floor gardens so we dont need to landscape on the outside.

  3. but this home toilet and bathroom was not good locations becaus it is near tha kitchen.. and bothrooms neae was joit next stored room… how to maintain privacy.

  4. Wow, what an incredible story!!

    I’m so pleased to hear that they were able to accomplish the goal they set for themselves, despite the medical condition!!

    It’s amazing to see how true love will always conquer any and all struggles!! For me, this gives me strength, faith, and hope that we all may experience what it feels like to have a love like this!!

  5. My favorite post on this channel. The home represents the epitome of small home living. Jaimie and Dave are authentic and charming–their love and ‘new’ appreciation for life is evident. I really enjoyed watching. Thank you!

  6. It’s good that they are happy with it, and they seem to manage to keep it clean and uncluttered, but I can just feel claustrophobia creeping in looking at that narrow space.

  7. I hope that within the next 10 years I will be able to build something like that. It feels so wrong to pay rent to somebody who allready has so much more monney than me while working for somebody who allready has so much more monney than me. Also: I just want a place to fit me needs for work and relaxation. Haven’t felt at home, ever.
