This is a pretty nice Shipping Container home built in Austin

Shipping Container Buildings December 8, 2016

The Austin Vacation Container Home. This is a nice, simple, and small house built from a shipping container down in Austin, Texas. You might recognize it for its appearance on HGTV’s “Container Homes.” From the gallery of images, you can check out what they did to finish this shipping container so you can’t even really tell it is a container, with bright wall paint, slat boards with natural finish, and a modern, simple overall look.

What does it take to build a shipping container house?

Building a container house may seem simple. Just connect two, three or however many used containers in a house. The final cost of the container house includes more than just a couple shipping containers, though, because naturally you need to arrange the containers and building site, and outfit the building for living.

The price of the package is important. But the price of the what’s in the shipping home is also important: doors, fittings, finishes, heating …

NOTE: There are photos to illustrate the sizes of these containers and the types of homes at the bottom of the article. It might be best to go down there and look through them first, so you can know what’s being explained. You can also refer to the images as you go along.

HOW MUCH DOES A CONTAINER COST?

To build a house you need a container or multiple containers. They come both new or used. A container can be purchased from your dealer. Suppliers are often in large commercial ports.

40 foot container: A container costs between $2200 and $3300 US. They also have 20 foot ones, and other sizes.

It takes one or two containers to build up a cabin or a small house. The shipping containers come painted. Transportation and installation of the package has an additional price. An old container can cost much less, but you have to buy a waterproof container, so make sure it meets that requirement.

The price of the container also depends on the manufacture, and on the quantity purchased. The price to buy 1 or 10 containers is not the same.  For a good price, the used container is a better deal. The best solution is to go to a port or containers are numerous and where providers are also numerous.

A Shipping Container Home with a Shipping Container Guest House

Shipping Container Buildings December 6, 2016

A Shipping Container Home with a Shipping Container Guest House

This shipping container looks like a modern design that could fit in or be adapted to any town or city space. It’s called the “51st Home,” and it was built in Austin, Texas, by Patrice Nichole Rios, owner of Troo Designs, as what the designer calls her “reclaimed modern architecture” concept. It displays the effect that an interior designer can get by just focusing on one large striking element… in this case the large blue walls, which seem to be coordinated with two other main style elements: white paint and natural wood finish. But that’s not all: there’s a shipping container guest house outside, left with the original “shipping container” exterior.

Shipping containers are closed metal boxes, and there are different sizes of containers, but 40 meters is the largest and most widely used construction container. This container produces mainly cube-shaped houses. These houses can be considered a byproduct of the industrial international transport to a degree, and are environmentally friendly in the sense that they re-use what is otherwise no longer needed.

Location considerations: In a hot climate beach-side location, like the interesting tiny house in Sri Lankan (photo below), a shipping container house can be built with materials on and around the site, including a few domestic containers and deconstructed remains of old wooden boxes from weapons. This container house was built with a single container. The waterfront home is located right on the beach, and you can see how well suited it would be considering the heat of the country and the breeze coming from the open water.

Construction with containers is trendy, it’s increasing in the world for both emergency shelters and for for modern and contemporary construction.

Check out the gallery of photos below (all images on our site are expandable, even the featured images at the top of most articles).

10 Awesome Modular Homes That Can Be Built in Just Three Days

Modular November 1, 2016

Modular homes are built indoors in a factory-like setting. Thanks to creative minds, many of these modular buildings can be purchased and set up in just three days on a prepared building site. These beautiful homes are transported to their new locations, where they are brought together by their builder. Living in this type of home sounds simple and reduces stress to residents since it’s small, and also portable. Another thing is it enhances intimacy among family members to have a small house, but since they’re modular, they can later be expanded if more space is needed.

These awesome modular homes are built by firms we’ve already indexed in our Modular Home Designers and Builders Directory. You can go there and search out the name of the company, and also find builders near your area.

40′ Shipping Container Home

Shipping Container Buildings October 2, 2016

40' Shipping Container Home

Just one container. This is Danny Webber’s work, and it has electricity, plumbing, composting, a master bedroom and a washroom.

Danny Webber has joioned the group of people who see life in a shipping container. When some of us look at shipping containers, we just see something industrial that serves industrial purposes. But Danny  Webber was able to see something else, a home. This is one of the most unique dwelings today. It is not unlike a tiny house where you must be concerned with how you use your space, but it is different than a tiny home in that it has a unique look, while many tiny homes look like miniatures of larger homes.

The shipping container conversion requires a lot of thought and physical additions, like Webber’s compost toilet. There are normally plans for a tiny house while a shipping container is one open space that allows you to begin building and remodeling from scratch.

For more of Danny Webber’s work, find him in our shipping container homes directory.
