Our Story: Turning Our Container Home Dream into Your Reality

Hi, we’re Jen and Mark! A few years ago, we were just like you – craving a home that was truly ours. Not the overpriced, same-old, same-old, but a space that reflected our passion for sustainability, DIY spirit, and that pinch-me-is-this-real sense of freedom.

Then we stumbled upon shipping container homes. Suddenly, everything changed! The affordability, the creative potential, the thrill of building something unconventional… we were hooked.

Our journey wasn’t without its hiccups (hello, unexpected welding lessons!). That’s why we created “Making Our Nest”. We wanted to share our hard-won knowledge, the tips, the tricks, and the sheer joy of this building adventure. We believe everyone should have the chance to create a home they love, without breaking the bank or harming the planet.
