    any ideal how much it cost to ship a 40′ container. I found some 45′ high cube (taller) containers for 1,750.00.

    Lol sorry about that. I got a call today from a container salesman and they wanted $3,000 per 40′ container and $560 for deliver. I thought that was a little high considering i’m finding them online for half that.

    Thanks for the reply. I have looked into the container ideal and really like it. I have 3 kids and one is a girl so i need to make a 3 bedroom. I figure i could do this with 3 20′ containers or 2 40′. I’m haveing a big problem finding somewhere near by that sales them. And if i can afford to have them delivered, they will have to be moved into place once they are dropped. I dont own a tractor or anything that could move them.

    Thank you so much for the reply, but i think i’m a little more confused now. I realy am clueless when it comes to AC wiring. And the extent of my DC wiring is rewiring lights and pumps and trolling motors in boats.

    I would love to be able to put a few solar panels up but due to the heavy tree coverage it is not an option.

    So your saying i can wire the cabin with standard 120ac plugs, lights and fans, and run it all to a inverter and than to batteries? I dont know what an inverter is. lol I swear, after think about all this elctrical stuff i’m about ready to go with lamps and candals instead. If i go with 120 dont i have to meet certain building codes and such? I’m trying to avoid all that. This is only going to be a hunting camp and not a residence. Not yet anyway.

    Please reply back. I’m eager to learn as much as i can on this subject. A link to a wireing diagram or website about doing this type of wireing would be helpfull. Thanks.
