Can we get a container hous thread going?
Ive been wanting to look into this as a long term project. Just doing research for now, checking if its even posible in the area where I live atm.
Honestly, I have no idea how to go over this, so Ive made a list of shit I think I need to do.
>First of all, I'll need a patch of land to build my container home on. Check prices for land where Im allowed to put my containers.
>I presume I have to put down a concrete foundation to secure the containers and make sure I have plumbing and shit hooked up to the sewer system.
>Find out all the permits I need for all that shit.
>Find out how much containers i need and how much it will cost me to transport them.
>Find a temp place to work on the containers?
>Use some plans for how I want my house to look and work on the containers.
>Transport my finished containers to my plot of land.
>Weld it all together
>(Again, find out what permits I need for all that.)
Been thinking about installing solar panels aswell but those are troubles for later.
If anyone can direct me to some helpfull websites or has any tips/recomendations, please reply.

I have four of these large plastic barrels, I've sealed them all and they all float. I want to construct a raft to sail around on the sea a bit. How would you recommend doing it? I don't have any power tools as I'm at uni, and can't really afford to buy new ones atm. I have nails, planks and rope.
Ideally I'd like to float three people on it, but two would be fine.
I was thinking of building a frame out of the planks, nailing everything together. Maybe getting wooden pallets and nailing them to the top so we have somewhere to sit.
But we don't really know how to attach the barrels to the platform without drilling any holes into them. Ideas?

Sup /diy/ today I finally figured out how to make the main characters weapon from "The Last Apprentice" by joseph delaney.
Now that I figured it out and spent 4+ hours in MS paint designing it, I am going to start collecting the materials for it.
If some one has already made this post a link/pic.
My question for all of you is what problems do you foresee complicating my project?
I am making this for purely decorational purposes, but I want everything to seem real.woodworking and metalworking I can do, and I have all the tools I need. this will be made onto 2 halves then glued together, maybe banded with metal caps on both ends. If this does work out, I do want to make a fully functional version for use as a pig sticker. When I get to the pig sticker I want to forge the spear head/rod together to make one solid piece.
TL;DR what will go wrong in my pic

Think you guys can help me out here? I need to find a specific type of pulley.
I need it to accommodate 5/8" rope, and mount FLAT to a ceiling or wall. Not with an eye.
Pic is very much related. But this one is meant for 3/16" rope. Does anybody know where I might be able to find such a thing for a decent price? I have found that blocks like these are available for use in theatrical rigging, but those are far too expensive, and way overkill for us. I'm surprised that such a thing is so hard to find.
Required working load is only about 50lbs, so with a 5:1 safety margin we're looking at a 250lb rated pulley.
Also, what is this type of pulley called, that mounts flat like this? That might help me find one.
