My name is James Triplett "Jimbo". I have been a graphic designer for about 20 years, mostly in commercial and industrial graphics. I also play drums (for most of my life). This is my first attempt at architecture and house interior design. I guess some of the reasons I chose to endeavor in this project is because I am a huge fan of re-purposing as much as we can in this world, for future generations. as well as for ourselves. I chose aluminum shipping containers for my project because, after some research, I found the containers to be generally more suitable for the long term living aspect. The research I followed stated that aluminum containers are a bit stronger, more water-tight than their steel cousins, and come very well insulated, with double wall construction. They are Steel framed with exterior aluminum sides, insulation, and food-grade stainless steel walls in the interior, so you a double wall strength, not to mention rust proof and a number of other sustainable factors.
