BUYING WELDING EQUIPMENT TO KEEP YOUR WELDER HAPPY!!

So if like us you are going to do a lot of the welding for your containers yourself you need to invest in decent equipment. There is going to be a LOT of welding in a house made of metal, plus it helps that your welder is kept happy – happy welder gets more work done, especially when he is a teenager and can still get distracted easily!!!…. Obviously being made of metal the welding is one way to cut down the cost if you can do it yourself!

WELDING EQUIPMENT – MAKE SURE IT IS POWERFUL ENOUGH!

As the welder was going to be a major part of the build we bought a decent sized one from Hyundai – fantastic, except as we haven’t any mains electric yet the generator we had would not run it…. So we also had to invest in an even larger generator [We also chose a Hyundai generator as well to be able to run the welder].  We figured this was a good investment anyway as to provide power for the house in the future when the power cuts out [ quite common in Corfu]. Then the first thing we had to make was a trolley for the generator as it was too big to move!

Jamie managed to do this amazingly quickly and there was the generator now mobile …

Still, both generator and welder are now working perfectly – big cheer all around [see the video] and on we go!

The first thing the guys wanted to do [as again no electric ] was to add light to the container and also have a practice at cutting, welding, etc … so first thing after the generator trolley was a skylight … see the next post for this …
