Dryseal waterproofs a shipping container home in Dublin!

Hambleside Danelaw’s Dryseal was chosen as the roofing solution for a project which converted a shipping container into a home for a family in Dublin.

A team of volunteers worked to create the RIPPLE container home project. Ceardean architectural design + selfbuild and Buyers Broker International assisted in the build which took three days in late November 2014. The team completely refurbish a container unit and turned it into a fully functioning home.

Dryseal Approved contractor P Q Fibreglassing of County Longford gladly donated their services and Hambleside Danelaw supplied the Dryseal materials free of charge to waterproof the new home.

The home has been donated to the St Vincent de Paul charity, and it is intended to be made available as short-stay accommodation for families as an alternative to a hostel or hotel.

Scheduled for a 1 hour TV programme in Ireland in the near future, followed by a book documenting the whole container home process in 2015, the project has attracted considerable media attention.
