“Tim Creek and his family bought a Refrigerated box that was rusting away in a field and had bigger dreams for it. They converted it into their family cabin!”
This video shows how they built a $30,000 tiny cabin for $3,000 – $4,000 not counting labor.

When he was talking beside his kitchen units, he said that because it was a refrigerated container, he had to use a 3-inch base to take the weight. Is that because the refrigerated ones have a lot of extra metal in them ? Double skinned ?
Following on from that, if there is such a thing as a single-skinned box, that would mean that people using it will need to put extra cladding on the inside to create a double wall and avoid condensation too ? So maybe a 3-inch base will always be sensible anyway, whatever type of box or container is used ?
As you gather, I don’t know what I’m talking about, but just wanted to clarify that for anyone going to tackle one…
I don’t know how refrigerated trucks are built. I assume they are metal stud frames, metal sheeting on both sides and foam insulation inside. He added siding/paneling to both sides to hide the metal and improve acoustics.
That is neat
I’ve seen these old refrigerated trucks sitting around but it never occurred to me to turn one into a little house.
