  1. The rusty cor-ten steel exterior is interesting. What do you think?

  2. Great video as always, I am loving this home. At first I thought it was an apartment building. It's interesting and unconventional to the banks, but it's something that makes it special and unique.

  3. Does containers has any useful purpose in a hot climate countries? Also, is it better to cut off top metal roof, and replace it cooler roof, such as wood or tiles

  4. This time around the design seems to be overkill and thrown together do to alot of redesign on sight plus materials used inside like plywood cabinets thrown together stairs look like a unfinished kit thrown together I wish the couple would have taken more time and not rushed it and it's not finished I would love to seen it all the way completed before they moved in I see where they are going with its design but less plywood 👍🏽👎🏽🤔🤔
