So here’s one of the rough sketches of our design plans for the house. The main structure begins with a 40ft. high cube steel shipping container. From there, will be a 10ft deck off the long side that stretches the span of the container and reaches out over the hill facing the ocean. Then we build an awning to cover the deck. Shade is essential! Next the plan is to expand with a 10ft wide and 40 foot long additional made from steel framing. The next phase is to build a second story open air “yoga studio” like upper porch. The plan is to have a pyramid shaped roof up here made from steel, bamboo wood and thatch. This picture show the temporary “lean to” roof that we will need to start with. The view from this top deck is going to be stunning.
And here is a cute little picture of the back of the house, which actually faces away from the road and towards the ocean. We are starting with two sets of 6ft glass french doors (each door is 3ft wide) and one set of 6 foot french windows all along the ocean side of the container. This will really open up the floor plan. I’ll be posting a lot more on the fabrication of this doors/window etc. but this is a good little peak for now.
