So far this has been the most enjoyable and rewarding thing I have ever made as a maker…Well, besides Carys. I have always wanted to have a DIY sod roof so when I was designing the shipping container I figured this was my chance. It was also a good opportunity to have a green roof tutorial to share on my channel. If your curious about how I designed the green roof drainage, It is covered in our shipping container conversion series video 5 and 7. video 5; and video 7; Hori hori gardening tool, http://amzn.to/29XQiY4 don’t forget to subscribe to our channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9WKX3qBnZ7aDgxl6lDKl6w?sub_confirmation=1 FOLLOW: http://www.vonthompsoncreative.com/ https://www.facebook.com/theVonThompsonCreative/ https://www.instagram.com/vonthompsoncreative/?hl=en An old church and a group of farm buildings built in the traditional Icelandic way with turf walls and roofs with grass on top!! Oh and some impressive mountains in the distance.

    This looks awesome, I love how you layed out the roof shingles. Is there a particular name to this styl and do you just kind of wing it or is there a pattern to follow. Thanks, love your videos

    Best how-to video I've seen lately. Excellent videography and narration. Thank you for keeping it concise. And a double thank you for not adding music.

    1000 points for everything you did so well. one thing is put a tarp in truck before rocks and when you can pull it forward the rocks will dump into a buckt. well done on everything

    So I agree with Dav Snow below. I actually wasn't planning to watch them all tonight, but I got a bit addicted. You do make it very easy to watch, listen and follow along to the end. I cannot wait to see the inside when you get it completed. I am totally amazed of the job that you did. I mean, of course along the way, you had some help here and there, but basically, you did this completely by yourself. I am also very impressed with your complete knowledge of a complete build on something like this. It reminds me of my dad. You know the saying Jack of all trade master of none, well, my dad was a jack of all trades and a master of all. It appears that you are as well. I am totally impressed and I just love how charming your work shop is looking next to your beautiful home. Great job!!
