Houston Chronicle feature December 2017
Olli Global is a producer of custom low cost shipping container conversions based in Houston Texas. These contemporary conversions will include but are not limited to tiny homes for on/off grid, guest houses, hunting & fishing cabins and small scale starter businesses such as coffee shops & stationary food trucks.
Olli stands for “One Life Live It” which is a saying used across Europe and something that the owner and founder believes in strongly especially after being cancer free for the last 7 years following his diagnosis of renal cell carcinoma in 2010. Having worked in the banking industry for over 15 years including working on Wall St for a brokerage house and some of Europe’s top investment banks and hedge funds in London a change was needed. Using all his savings and applying for a US visa the start of a new career building tiny homes was born. Having worked with his father in the construction industry & a member of the Federation of Master Builders in the UK converting shipping containers into tiny homes is now not only passion the owner/founder has but something he looks forward to doing every day.
Trying to achieve a green eco-friendly status is something Olli Global is striving for & an area that is key to our internal goals/objectives. Reusing & up-cycling as much as possible, using high efficiency Energy Star rated appliances, using only dual pane glass with LowE coatings for UV protection and energy savings as well as pre-fabricating as much as possible to ensure minimal waste & minimal on-site disturbance are all key factors that differentiate Olli Global from our competitors.
Building both on/off grid homes with 110v/12v outlets and appliances, using solar panels with battery back ups are all possible within the 20′ & 40′ containers. We also have a passion for converting school buses into tiny homes too, this was developed from converting Ford Econoline vans in the US in & Mercedes Sprinter vans & Volkswagen T4/T5 transporter vans in the UK into camper vans with showers, fridges, solar panels, fold out beds, sinks, cookers, led lights and build in tv. (Updates on conversions soon)
We will be happy to discuss any of your container conversion needs whether that be on a heavy duty trailer or without one and as we work next door to a shipping container yard we can get decent prices on shipping, we will also help out with this as we understand the need to factor in the cost.
