In a somewhat unexpected turn of events, the first containers arrive on site! We knew container delivery would be a feat in itself, and it lived up to the expectation.
Due to our steep and graveled approach, in combination with narrow and low-overhead clearance, we had assumed the larger semi-trucks would not attempt to deliver the containers to our property. In preparation, we set up a separate staging area offsite to allow a more compact delivery truck to transfer the containers to our site. After taking the first driver on a preview of the road in our personal vehicle, he was confident he could deliver the containers to our site on his semi-truck. As a backup, we had a huge front-end loader and chains, ready to tow the trucks up our hill if needed….thank god, because one of the three trucks needed a little assistance!
Ultimately, we now have our first three containers staged on our property, and now we need a crane! The remaining four containers are scheduled to arrive when the crane is on-site, as we don’t have enough cleared and level lay-down space for all seven containers.
