Belinda Carr

Home Building Materials & Processes

We discovered Belinda’s channel while researching an article on shipping container homes. We really respected the bold and provocative stance she took on this somewhat controversial subject, backed with fair analysis, thorough research and brave perspectives. Many of the viewers of this popular video did, as well. Her channel covers “topics related to building construction”. What is unique to her channel is that she is gifted at making any topic she covers understandable, relevant and interesting. Though she is educated in Architecture and had considered a career as an architect, we think she has found her true calling on YouTube.
