Small budget, extreme weather conditions and hope for the durability of the construction led the brothers to consider the possibility of creating accessible design of shipping containers.

After some sketches and analysis of the construction site, two dvadtsatitonnyh sea container - (5,000 pounds each) were purchased in Minneapolis for $ 800 each.
