Name: John Denver
(December 31, 1943 – October 12, 1997)
Though he composed and sang some of the most peaceful and beautiful songs of his generation, John Denver fought demons and an addiction to alcohol.
Denver was not legally permitted to fly at the time of the accident.
Denver’s life ended suddenly when the plane he was flying, an experimental Rutan Long-EX, crashed into Monterey Bay near Pacific Grove, Calif.
Post-accident investigation by the NTSB showed that the leading cause of the accident was Denver’s inability to switch fuel tanks during flight.
John Denver was not born in Colorado or West Virginia. Denver was actually born in Roswell, N.M. as Henry John Deutschendorf Jr. (December 31, 1943 – October 12, 1997)
His divorce from Annie Denver Anne Martell was a bitter battle: The woman who inspired “Annie’s Song,” which was written on a ski lift in 10 minutes, battled John over the division of property during their 1982 divorce proceedings. John Denver became so enraged with his estranged wife that he tried to choke her. He then took a chainsaw to their marital bed and sawed it in half.
He married again and lived in Aspen continuously until his death.
Funeral services were held at Faith Presbyterian Church in Aurora, Colorado, on October 17, 1997, officiated by Pastor Les Felker, a retired Air Force chaplain, following which Denver’s remains were cremated and his ashes were scattered in the Rocky Mountains.
“Death is not an ending, but a symbol of movement along the path upon which we are all traveling. As it may be painful to lose contact with the physical aspect of one we love, the Spirit can never be lost. We have been and always will be a part of each other.”
— John Denver

In this video we explore and learn how to use shipping containers as strong, durable and mobile building blocks to create amazing structures of all kinds, like a house, addition, office space, or cabin; and we feature a few stunning projects to get you inspired!
Anthony Ruggiero from Storstac Inc. ( showed us around their yard in Toronto, Ontario and took the time to teach us about the ins and outs of building with shipping containers. We’re excited to share the tips and information we learned with you.
Shipping containers come in standard 20 foot and 40 foot lengths, and there are other specialty custom sizes like the 10′, 45′, 48′, 53′ long containers.
Almost all shipping containers are made in China, and can be bought used (after they’ve been used for 10-20 years), or new, which means they’ve one been used once.
Since there are no shipping manifests for used containers to show what was transported in them over the course of their lifetime (it could be anything from clothes to nuclear waste), it’s better to build with a new shipping container that’s only been used once.
They’re made with COR-TEN steel, which is a weathering steel that can withstand harsh weather conditions and elements like salt water because the rust on weathering steel creates a protective patina to keep it strong, whereas rust on mild steel would actually weaken the metal.
While building with shipping containers is not necessarily cheaper than conventional building, it does have advantages because the containers are modular, movable and mobile, durable, and have a unique, modern look.
They can be do it yourself friendly if you’ve worked with steel before, or if you find a company to take care of the steel work for you so you can focus on how to frame it and finish it from the inside.
Let us know what you think of shipping containers as alternative building blocks in the comments!

Upon arrival Squad 8’s crew went offensive with 1.75″ line while other crews began to open up the structure from the outside. After all visible fire was knocked down the crew was relieved by mutual aid who finished the overhaul.

Recorded on April 24, 2010 using a Flip Video camcorder.
At approximately 6:30AM Engine 1 had just extinguished an automobile fire and was returning to quarters when they reported smoke and a possible fire several blocks away. On investigation they found a fire in a vacant church on Woodward Avenue and Edmund Place and requested the box. When Chief 1 arrived on the scene he called for a second alarm, as well as two additional engine companies. Senior Chief reported that units would be taking a defensive posture, as the church by this point was fully involved. Three ladder trucks and supporting engines brought the fire under control within an hour. Crews were hampered by low water pressure and equipment problems, with Ladder 7 overheating and having to go to the repair shop. Engine 9 overheated and caught fire, requiring an additional engine to extinguish.
The 125-year-old church was a total loss. Arson is suspected, as the owner had sought to demolish the church, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The location had been placed on a list of potential owner arson targets by the Department of Justice, who got in touch with arson investigators. Due to the condition of the building and the facade facing out over a busy street, it was partly demolished later in the day.
