Modern Shipping Container ADU

Shipping containers and ADU’s (Auxiliary Dwelling Units) are as harmonious together as chocolate and peanut butter if you ask me. They are manufactured off-site, can have a variety of foundation options, size and orientation is easily adaptable to any lot or geographical obstacle, and they are remarkably affordable. 


I want to build this one to live in!

Oh, and let’s not forget the shipping container swimming pool… what’s not to love!? 

Rustic Bathroom Inspiration

I like the mixed use of materials and textures – copper, galvanized steel, concrete, distressed wood… 


Hoping that adding floor tile like this will lend to a more polished overall aesthetic and a bit less expensive Wild West minimalist “luxury” spa! 

Excited to get started, its excruciating to wait until Aug. 15. It’s fun planning in the meantime. 

Buying A Rental House – my first post!

This is the littleĀ house I am buying in the Alberta Arts district of Portland, Oregon.

It isn’t much at the moment, but I have exciting plans for a budget friendly, caviar taste quick rehab to breathe new life into this little cutie!!!

Stay tuned… šŸ™‚
