Instructions and Help about Which Form 944 Pr Developments

Music we're here at stores back in Toronto and we're going to find out how to use and modify shipping containers as alternative building blocks they've worked on some really interesting projects building homes additions cottage spunky's man caves mobile offices and a ton more so we're going to go meet up with Ann's I need to find out more I love modernist buildings I love modern architecture and the square boxes fit right into that a good paint job on them stands out it lasts for years it's durable and it's just a solid building they're also great because you can move them so shipping container is basically a standardized steel box that allows you to ship anything anywhere in the world typical dimensions are 20 and 40 feet but there are a number of specialty containers so you can go with a 10-foot container you can go with the 45 foot 48 and 53 containers are made out of something called Corten steel so Corten steel is a weathering steel when you see rust on the container it's not traditional rough that you'd see on mild field it's actually creating a protective patina a barrier that protects the steel underneath that's what allows it to put it on a ship and not have it rot away from all the seawater so my number one favorite is definitely the new old stock man case in conjunction with Jayson halter and the guys in new old stock we built two ultra high-end super luxurious man caves that are currently in Los Angeles are in downtown LA they featured everything from Spanish cedar Calcutta marble shower off-grid water solar panels Harlem house is another great one it is the first container extension in Toronto the idea of integrating the container with the traditional build the end result is going to be an awesome fusion of the two Rogers is another favorite the Roger shipping container fan hub that we bill features three containers on the bottom full open-concept one container on top cantilever ten feet over the right side and then a full 740 square foot patio deck another favorite is the 10 foot container bunkie that we built for a client of ours up in of all places tiny Ontario so it was literally a tiny 10 foot container which is 10 by 8 80 square feet fully insulated finished it's got a beautiful glass sliding door on it all shipping containers come from China you may find people like us that can build them locally but for cost sake you bring them all in from China new or use Soyuz containers usually have a 10 to 20 year life being used for shipping goods around the world so trains planes automobiles on trucks they go anywhere and everywhere new containers are built in China they're loaded once they're brought to their destination unloaded and then they're intended to be sold either for storage modification or anything else that you can do with them we'll use used and new containers for modification as you can see behind me depending on the application so a used container is great for simple storage on site if you want to throw some roll-up doors or use it as is and store goods inside great for use containers you want to use more of the new containers for things like housing for food serving or retail purposes you always want to use new because a use container you'll never know what was inside of it there is no manifest that you can find on that container because each shipper puts their own goods inside and then somebody else will ship something else in it so you can ship anything from baby products clothing right up to nuclear waste inside of a container which I've actually seen that before the nuclear waste if we're doing a container modification there's a few I guess steps that you can take to modify it first we'll cut all of our openings that will be for doors windows vents louvers they're then framed with steel once the opening is framed we go to the inside of the container we'll do all of the interior framing if we're doing walls and ceilings you'll do an electrical roughing will get all the rough and work done then it goes over to our paint shop then it comes back into the shop and that's when you do all the final finishing it follows the same type of building that a traditional build will take except we're not using stick build we're using containers containers are great for a number of reasons it's something that we can do off-site and then deliver to site complete typically you'll go overnight you'll have a foundation and then the next day you'll have the structure complete so it's great for that instant deployability durability is another thing that's great for the housing and the bunkie sector because it's a steel box so you don't have to worry about wood rotting or the weather conditions doing a container home or bunkie if you're going for permitting it is the exact same way that you would do a traditional building so you approach an architect he does drawings once the drawings are done you then approach the city the city reviews the drawings make sure everything meets Ontario Building Code if it does they give you the stamp of approval and you can begin construction if it doesn't they may make you do some revisions and resubmit or they may tell you you can do it at all depending on the project some challenges are they're not the most do-it-yourself friendly build because there is a lot of Steel work involved at least on the exterior of the structure so never you want to put a door window if you can't weld or you haven't work with steel before it's difficult to do it's a lot different.
