    Yup! With a hot water butt sprayer top. Don't like pooping in holes.

    Hit mine with zep degreaser, pressure wash then phosphate. It will probably peel.

    Isn't this the disadvantage of something like the Bluetti? You can't upgrade any single component or add more of one component.

    One more photo you might enjoy. Wood stove, control panel for solar, winches, inverter etc. This shows how the range hood/microwave vents. The wood burning stove has some 4" ductwork to carry the heat back to the minecraft cave, master bedroom and the opposite direction over to the...

    In no particular order. Self explanatory other than there 3 queen beds. One in up the little ladder. Under that one down the hall, there is another the "minecraft" cave and then master bed in the back. Above that first queen bed are two twin beds. All craigslist free or cheap stuff...

    You're making the right choice. Doing anything beyond a single shipping container build makes absolutely no sense. Unless it's just strictly for the love of containers and an artistic/architectural statement, you gain nothing using them in that manner

    Its fine. As I am sure you know, you don't want to support it in the middle, just keep the support towards the ends so it lays naturally. On a 45', I would support it at the 40' castings. Make sure and keep the entire container at least 6" off the ground. You're well beyond that obviously...
