The company focuses on repurposing old storage containers and converting them into living spaces.
So far, Sawyer has built two cabin prototypes and promotes them at home and fishing expos. Sawyer also has clients who want to build homes out of multiple containers, or convert containers into the ultimate tailgating house.
