Just a little advice from engineer/architect : Better using brackets(DIN) and bolts(DIN) for long steel columns&beams. Great job Andrew. I am enjoying watching and learning different machines from your videos.

Thanks Andrew! You are one of my favourite youtubers and have inspired me to pursue a fuller life. I appreciate the way you take the time to explain what you're doing and you're experience as you go through it. Your cinematography makes us all feel included, like we are right there with you looking over your shoulder and ready to pass you a tool. Thanks again for all your great videos and showing all the cool machines and how to care for them!

There is, this building is much stronger than any code. Code lets people build out of fire wood.

Andrew, I been watching your videos for awhile and really enjoy them in how to repair stuff and work on projects. I live in Texas and envy the weather in your State. Its always hot here. But most of all I would like to thank you for the work you do and because your language and demeanor are clean . other folks in their videos drop F bombs every two seconds and I don't like it.

How much longer until you build your own gas station to store the fuel for all of your vehicles and tools? I could see you putting a few tanks in the ground and hooking up some secondhand pumps in about 1-2 days. Maybe 5 if you pour a slab.

safety lesson:
1)The soil of this ridge is brittle. (See some videos , where the foundation of the structure is exposed.
It is not compact rock, but consisted by layers (foils) of stones.
Therefore , in case of heavy rain and flooding , the structure will colapse like "castle in the sand.".
2)The shipping containers, have specific payload and stacking standards.
The use of extra metal roof , is a new burden towards overall strength.
Wonder , how the City gave permits for these nuinces 😠

Hi Andrew, really great work that you sharing with us on your build. I think it's awesome. You need some friends help , not body yourself.(should have your son helping you out(moocher)) But, you should us on your next big build think of (remember) fireball three and four way big magnet squares..
That could help you out holding things together and square.
Great job young man( I don't know how old you are) lolhaha..
You're a big inspiration to me and the things that "you can do if you put your mind to it!!!"God bless you

How many containers did this take? plus, come up with this plan to make a container Castle? I will be watching more of you make this?
Thank you for sharing.

At the end while you's two were lifting that beam I thought well that's one way to screw up your back for life. That''s why today I've been bed ridden with a totally mess up back for nearly 20 years now. cause I was a stupid idiot. Don't follow in my footsteps budd if you don't have to don't do it..for Gawn saks. I was a welder fitter for 30 years and did much of what I see you do today I'm cripple cause I thought I was indestructible now all I fricken do is suffer chronic pain 24 7 ..not worth budd ..get a kick of your dog he's thinks he's accomplishing just as much as you are getting the job done. lol

The new roof will mess with the castle look, you can use "polyurea spray coating" it will actually seal the roof completely and add strength to it, it can withstand heavy impacts, in many places they use first 2 inches of Closed Cell Foam and then they add the Polyurea coating, that way you added exterior insulation and water proofing. I used to work on a cruise and they use it also there to cover the decks preventing rusting from the salt sea water; There are several videos on internet where you can see the amazing properties of this product.

Hey Andrew. I'm not big on YouTube comments in fact, you are the first. I just wanted to drop a line and say thanks.
I've been watching your channel for a while and I picked up some really helpful tips on how to best grade some ground with a skid steer. I work on a farm with a vineyard that has to be graded for proper drainage. I've got a little more left to do. Keep up the good work and thanks again.

Os caibros de metal, que foram soldados na lateral do contêiner, desconfio que essa solda não é suficiente para durar muito e suportar a força do vento. Se soldar caibros por cima, ligando os caibros das duas laterais; acho que fica mais seguro.
Ou faz furos dos dois lados do caibro, no container, solda um travessão na vertical por dentro, e faz uma braçadeira improvisada, e abraça o caibro na parte de cima e embaixo do contêiner.
Da para também soldar por fora, sem fazer buraco no contêiner. Na parte de cima do contêiner debaixo, solda três pedaços de perfil quadrado para abraçar o caibro. Ou soldar muito bem soldado, um perfil liso e extenso em cada lateral do caibro.

One thing that's driving me batty is the alignment of three of the columns you can see at 1:12:52 .
There are two short ones and a tall one. He notched out the brick for one of the short ones, which is butted up against the wall.
The other two are sort of out in the field.
But here's the thing... two of the three seem to be lined up perfectly while the third one is offset by the width of one column.
Why wouldn't those three columns be lined up instead of offset??
Andrew Camarata
Andrew Camarata - 8 måneder siden
There was a reason for it. I forgot what it was. I am adding more columns to that spot soon to spread the load more on the existing concrete roof.

I'm about to quit teaching high school art and start a landscape/ excavating business. You are one of the youtubers that have inspired me!
I built my first lawn care and first landscape trailer. The first one was over 10 years ago and it's still on the road.
Cheers and keep welding, fixing, building, and digging!
