Delivery day for the OKC container home

More than a year’s worth of work finally culminated in the delivery of the OKC container home to its residential lot in southeast OKC. It was early June 2015.

Torrential rains during May caused many weeks of delays, because the crane truck necessary to hoist the box onto the foundation walls is so big and heavy that any wet ground would likely precipitate the formation of huge gashes in the lawn or maybe even a wholly stuck truck.

Eventually, the conditions cleared, and a delivery date was coordinated with Cisco. I hired Allied Steel to provide crane services, and, to save on costs, they let me do the rigging.

Crane truck is all set up to lift the box off of the trailer and onto the foundation. I'm on top of the box.
