I think the stabilized ones are also supposed to withstand water better. So, you embed a 2x4 in the concrete, with a stud positioning it vertically, and then you mount a 2x8 to the embedded 2x4?

Why did you estimate 82 linear feet of 2x4s? Why are the 4x4s 10'?

I have seen many shipping container homes, but this is my first time seeing homes for boxcar children.
