So close, that in the next day or two, weather permitting, we will start pouring the concrete footings and columns! In the next photo, I am standing taking the picture in the area where the first two containers will be, looking across the lot to batter boards where the second set of containers will sit. So far we have had to machete a few surface roots, but haven’t encountered a single stone, rock, or boulder.
It is actually easier to work with a lot of water in the hole, because when the mud is just a bit drier it sticks to the shovel and to your boots. So at the end of day two of Armando digging, joined on day two by Hernan, we have seven holes completed in the area of the first two containers. So notebook with sketches in hand, down the hill I went in search of materials appropriate for the forms. This entry was posted in shipping container home, Shipping Container House by Fred at Shipping Container House in Panama. Kalkin's modestly-sized, 1,920-square-foot Quik House sits on top of a hill in the middle of three wooded acres. The Drop House landed on the prefab scene after winning the Modular Architecture Challenge in 2005 with its gorgeous aesthetic and easily-customizable system. The Stevens Container House is a wall of containers, built against a hill in Wellington, New Zealand, designed and built by Ross Stevens. They are not conventional steel containers; with their smooth skins, they may have been "reefers" or refrigerated containers, although there are a number of smooth-skinned types out there. The 12 Container House is a custom prefab green home created from 12 recycled shipping containers. In much of what was once called “the free world,” governments and economies are in the throes of self-destruction.
That is no longer the case, and just as with everything else in recent months, the Baltic Dry dead cat bounce is now over, with the BDIY topping out just above 1200 on August 4, and now back in triple digit territory, rapidly sliding back to the reality of recent record lows which a few months ago we suggested hinted that much more is wrong with global trade, and the global economy, than artificially manipulated stock markets would admit. As expected, on Friday, we got confirmation that the BDIY has indeed become a lagging indicator to actual demand, when Reuters reported in its latest weekly update using data from the Shanghai Containerized Freight Index, that key shipping freight rates for transporting containers from ports in Asia to Northern Europe fell by 26.7 percent to $469 per 20-foot container (TEU) in the week ended on Friday. The collapse in rates is nothing short of a bloodbath: "it was the third consecutive week of falling freight rates on the world’s busiest route and rates are now nearly 60 percent lower than three weeks ago. Freight rates on the world’s busiest shipping route have tanked this year due to overcapacity in available vessels and sluggish demand in goods to be transported. HK cargo container throughput July -9.5% yoy, recorded 13 consecutive months decline, worst in modern history. Well, some, such as the world’s largest container shipping company, Maersk Line, will desperately try to no longer lose money on every transit, with a plan to raise spot freight rates by $1,000 from ports in Asia to ports in northern Europe, with effect from Sep 1.
The virtually guaranteed outcome of this "strategy", as there is simply not enough demand as the world careens off the global recession cliff to offset a surge in freight costs, will be an even greater collapse in trade volumes.
So, sarcasm aside, what really happens next, to both shipping, trade, the global economy and markets?

Maybe if Draghi and Yellen eject their warp cores simultaneously, the explosion will push us out of the singularity captain! Interesting to note that it costs less to ship an 8.6’ x 8’ x 20’ Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit(TEU) from Hong Kong to Amsterdam than it costs to have an 8’x 8’ x12’ PODS shipped from Maryland to VA. The problem with my neighbor is that I will end up looking at this party shack for the next decade, except he will not bothered to have spray-painted over the five-foot tall COSCO or Hyundai logo with brown primer.

The only thing I have going for me is that he would have to pay a couple of grand for one and then pay to have it dropped.
Nope - let me make this clear: there is no telling my neighbor what to do and he wouldn't give a damn anyways. My potential-shipping-container neighbor does occasionally mow his lawn, but refuses to mow the three-foot strip of boulevard in front of his house 'because it's city property' (it's not).
Less than containerload (LCL) rates from East Asia - Callao are down for us too (but only some 5% - 10%). I love Torben’s pool but I would say that he needs to work out a pump system for circulating and filtering the water. In the next photo, they are sticking out the back of the pickup, held up by the trailer hitch support rack I made. Armando makes the first plunge of the shovel, thereby officially starting actual house construction.
Back in the distant past I remember they had twenty four inch by eight foot long sections that can be special ordered to length. Our goal here is too illustrate the many container projects both big and small that are taking place around the world. A partial prototype was installed at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris at the time, and now, the stunning structure has been brought to life in full form – all 48 gorgeous square meters.
A bach "is the name given in New Zealand to structures akin to small, often very modest holiday homes or beach houses. It uses the spaces between the containers and the hill to expand its living space beyond that limiting interior dimensions of a standard ISO box.
Until the new housing developments start, these students will live on a ship (the Rochdale One), in former asylumseeker-housing and in 715 container-houses, that were designed bij hvdn architects. Recall that as we noted on August 3, "many were wondering how it was possible that with accelerating deterioration across all Chinese asset classes, not to mention the bursting of various asset bubbles, could global shippers demand increasingly higher freight rates, an indication of either a tight transportation market or a jump in commodity demand, neither of which seemed credible. Rates generally deemed profitable for shipping companies on the route are at about $800-$1,000 per TEU. In fact, easy monetary policy now appears to be backfiring, as even the "market" has figured out. There's tens of thousands of those rusty damn things piled up in my city and they will never be used - we don't manufacture jack any more. He will simply remind me that he's planning on painting it over, which puts it somewhere in a five-year timeframe, plus or minus two years. He has lawyers on speed-dial - he tried to sue the paper boy and newspaper for some nonsense. Lots of retirees that took care of their simple but neat little houses, mowed their lawns and generally respected each other. His favorite pastime is waxing his expensive SUV and pickups on the weekend with the sub-woofers on 11.
He is working in the second hole, and I have marked and dug the perimeter of the third hole (foreground). I figured that if 24″ ones were available that they would be closer to $20, and still not long enough. Too bad they're not made from wood - you could at least burn the damn things and get some use out of them. If he can't drag it home on his boat trailer (he doesn't own a boat) then I'm probably safe.
They're the kind of people that would come over and apologize because they thought the smell of charcoal lighter fluid they used to start their grill that afternoon might have annoyed you since the wind was blowing your way.

He hasn't won the lottery and doesn't have that great of a job, but just renewed his 'fleet' of pickups and SUVs - must have been $120K for all the new toys. I’m always impressed by people who can make something fantastic (and functional), save money, and use repurpose recycled materials in the process. Without moving water you won’t have a pool as much as you would a place for mosquitoes to chill-ax and multiply.
As much as I get comments at the hardware store about the trailer hitch roof rack extension, this new rack got the attention of staff and customers, too. At string intersections, you can drop a plumb bob down to the ground to locate the exact corner of the building.
Given that I would need 20 of them, that would be $200 and they wouldn’t be long enough. And I don't care what clever uses people can dream up for them, they're a f'king eyesore in any urban setting. I'm worried that he'll get an old beat-up one for free and have one of his mobster friends that works for the city drop it for him.
It's the kind of neighborhood where we all mow the older residents lawns for them just because.
Ten-foot long boards cut in half could do, but not really, as the widest available would be eleven-and-a-half inches and I need thirteen-and-a half to end up with a twelve-inch square column. I'm expecting my neighbor to have one dropped in his back-yard for some idiotic reason pretty soon. Using old pallets, siding, tarps, and a pool liner he made the best little DIY pool for $75 dollars. You can see (especially if you click the photo to enlarge it) two yellow strings marking the location of the center of the footing and column that we will pour. I wanted to take the easy route of the round tubes — all the shipping container houses (that are up on columns) I have seen on the Internet have used Sonotubes.
I think I mentioned his annoying, psycho Rottie that really needs to be on industrial-strength tranquilizers.
I could scab the plywood or boards together, but not ideal; too much work and not strong where they need to be.
No pun intended, but I lumbered back home with the 10′ sheets hanging out the back of the pickup, lashed in as if I were carrying nuclear waste or a dozen un-caged, very hungry lions. Actually, I feel for the dog - he's probably gonig insane trying to escape from that madhouse. I dropped a plumb bob down to the template, adjusting the template by kicking it with my foot so that the center point sat just below the plumb bob.
I would like to put tile on them later, but we are having design differences in our committee meetings.
So for now they are just nice smooth concrete, and they can be easily cleaned of mold and green slime with the pressure washer. I also cut up the sheet of plywood into two-foot squares, then cut a hole out of the middle of each one the size of the outside dimensions of the forms. When we assemble the forms, we will slip one of these collars over the top of each column to keep it absolutely square.
