Building a Shipping Container Home | EP03 Doors, Windows, and Insulation
In episode 3 we will show how we installed doors, windows, and insulation in a shipping container home. We experimented with different ways of reinforcing the openings we cut in the corrugated metal of the shipping containers and show how impacted the installation of the doors and trim pieces to cover gaps between the door frames and the containers. The star of this episode is the pair of JELD-WEN Bi-folding doors that we installed parallel to each other.
