The Idea – Convert a Shipping Container into a Tiny Home

You’ve all seen the Pinterest ideas or the Tiny House Nation. They take an ordinary shipping container and convert it into a liveable space—a tiny house.

Sounds simple, right! The TV shows and internet programs, in a half-hour to an hour they take you through the process. And then you think to yourself, “Simple, I can do that too.”

Well, 4 Walls Overnight – We’re more like reality TV meets blogging. Share our journey as we attempt our shipping container conversion.

Why do we do this? What is the point?

  • We want to tell you and show you what really happens to us as we try to make our dream a reality.
  • We will share the products we use, the challenges we face, how much it costs, and how long it really takes.

Why would you want to live in a shipping container?

Thanks to Google Photos, I was able to remember when this idea started to take shape.

The defining moment was in 2016 we were living in one of the smallest apartments we have ever lived in all of our married years. We were fixing up an apartment for our friend while we lived there rent-free.

That tiny apartment was just wider than one shipping container. When I finally figured out how to arrange our furniture to work in that tiny apartment space, we decided that with two 40 ft. shipping containers, was adequate to make a home that fits our needs.

and THE DREAM was born.
