Ripple

I was called in  as the Interior Designer on Ripple a Container Home to provide interim housing for St. Vincent De Paul.
by Derek Treneman of Ceardean ( www.ceardean.com) and Carol Tallon ( www.caroltallon.com).

It was an interesting opportunity and a challenge. The build was over 4 days in IMMA ( Irish Museum of Modern Art) so organisation was 
key and space was minimal! In a past career I worked as a container controller and was used to seeing containers on the back of trailers and 
I never expected that nearly 17 years later I would be designing the interior of a container.

When I called to site to see the container in its raw state with a side cut out of it, I did have a moment of doubt where I thought will everything fit!! 
even though I had the comfort of architectural plans from Derek! 

A mammoth task was ahead of us all, early mornings, late nights and caffeine overdose for 4 days to create a home in which a family could live.
I was working with a completely new team of tradesmen that I had not worked with before and had only met briefly and also the presence of a camera crew daily from
ROAR media!! 

I have to say it was it was a brilliant experience. The crew were all amazing and we all worked as a team who had been together for years on projects.
I even got over my camera shyness this was due to Tom from ROAR media sitting in the front seat of my tiny car while I drove to suppliers with a huge camera in my face
interviewing me!! 

At the end we completed a beautiful home which will be used for a great purpose. Thanks to all my suppliers who donated and fitted a huge number of items free of charge & thank you to Charley F Photography for the use of the photos.
