Home is where the box is

The containers have been released into their semi-permanent habitat! The plan was to drop our new containers at the studio where we would have access to boundless power. Two weeks certainly seemed enough time to plasma cut the window holes, place frames, measure, cut and weld studs and basically knock out all the heavy power tool work. But then.... My jet setting technology guru and source of brute strength was lured off to India to give a talk and my attempts to continue on single handed is laughable. This is the drawn out explanation of why I will now be welding in a field off a generator, just the way I learned mig initially in Kenya. Who ever spoke the words "measure three times cut once" clearly spent more time around a tape measure that I did. After miss measuring practically every aspect of my window frames and studs, the band saw has become my left-hand (saw?). Fortunately the red container is still somewhat on track, as long as you completely negate the one month deadline we just blew by with barely the studs in. We are covering both roofs with an elastomeric paint which will keep the internal temperature down significantly, not really an issue right now seeing that winter has rolled in and all we have are boxes with big holes.
