Start of Journey
It was on March 1st 2018 that Mackenzie and Spencer left Florida and moved to Texas leaving their precious lifestyle behind now.
I know most of us would absolutely love to have a steady, paying job with a decent salary and insurance and etc, and we definitely would not trade it in for anything else in the world. But this couple: well, they thought differently because, while leaving Florida, they both had to quit their jobs in the restaurant business and had sold everything starting from their cars to their home and so on, and they did so with the sole ambition of fulfilling their longtime dream.
The dream of building an off-grid container home for themselves without much outside help and live in the woods. So the couple started to concentrate on building their dream: shipping container home, which would be debt-free and completely powered by solar energy.
They’ve, even built a rainwater catchment system. In order to supply their water demands in the forest, the main idea behind all of this was to be as self-reliant and far away from society as possible, and This couple captured each stage of their journey in beautiful videos and uploaded them to their channel, which began To receive some crazy responses in their videos were able to see that they did almost everything on their own, like, for example, to meet their daily power requirements.
They transformed a useless old barn that they found into a fully facilitated storage, closet for solar energy, McKenzie and Spencer arranged the whole setup by themselves, and now the old barn is their own fully functioning solar power system.
What’s even crazier, is that they use tesla batteries for this that were set up off-grid using the internet, so, basically most of the content that they post mainly has to do with sharing each and every part of their journey with the World.
Right from the planning and foundation of their shipping container house to the setting up of a DIY homemade solar power system, they post every little step of their progress so that the viewers can enjoy it.
And this is why this channel has over 1.14 million subscribers. They took a massive risk by choosing this lifestyle over a fixed, steady Income, but it certainly does not look like they’re doing so bad either, because, even though there was a good chance that one day they’ll look back at that decision and regret their choice.
But now it seems, like everything has worked out well for the amazing couple, apart from YouTube, Mackenzie and Spencer have actually maintained accounts on other platforms too, like Instagram, Facebook and patreon.
It is important to mention here that these two were definitely not experts in any technical work. Nor did they have any previous experience when they started to go ahead with this project.
They used to be in the restaurant business and it was almost as if they woke up one morning and out of nowhere just randomly decided to quit their jobs and build their dream house out of two ugly shipping containers.
Apparently, the Couple got their inspiration to build a home like this from a road trip during which they stayed in various unconventional guest houses and ever since then, Spence and McKenzie had been researching the internet about alternative style homes before they got this idea that changed their Lives forever.
Immediately, as they decided to pursue their dreams. They went ahead and bought two shipping containers and started working on them by using tutorials and videos from YouTube.
It took them more than two years to finish this dream project and in their most popular video, we can see clearly how beautifully they have documented each step of their journey in the road towards fulfilling this dream.
How much money does Life Uncontained earn?

So how much money are they actually making out of YouTube? Let us quickly find out about that to understand what we’re about to show you right now. You first need to have a somewhat clear idea about how YouTube channels earn their money and what it’s based on.
Income generated by the channel can be calculated by two factors. One is the daily views that the channel gains and the other is the CPM or cost per ml. This is nothing but the cost.

So if a channel is trending, then chances are they’re getting paid a bit more than their usual income.

This will take them to a monthly income of around $26,200 and overall yearly revenue of more than $310,000 which is amazing, since all of this is coming from you tube’s ad revenue alone.
Apart from this, the couple also earns extra income through their patreon Account, where fans can support them with a paid monthly subscription.
