“Converting a used sea container / shipping container to a home, cabin or emergency shelter.”

I like reading original articles and blogs like this one by do-it-yourselfers who show exactly what to do with clear photos and detailed instructions, and take the time to answer questions. We encourage natural builders to document their projects and share their experience with others. (It’s easy to do now with free blogs from WordPress, etc.) Don’t want to build your house with containers? Consider using them for making fast, efficient tool sheds, animal shelters, workshops and for mechanical systems.

  1. Container homes are really nice and I live in one myself. The thing is living in one may seem great now, but few years down the line, you may find that the novelty wears off. So before you put the money down into building one, you really need to be 100% sure you’re gonna be pleased with your potential living situation.

    Sure, a container home is a smart, eco-friendly alternative to living in a traditional home, after a while however, you may find yourself hankering for the comforts of the latter. If you’re 100% set on it, then awesome. Don’t forget to take into account your space requirements before commencing with construction.

    If you have a large family, or you’re simply interested in having a lot of individual rooms, you’ll likely need multiple shipping containers, which means a ton more work and customization compared to a house made out of a single cargo container. They are many other considerations of course.

    As for me personally, I tremendously enjoy living in a container home. In general, container homes are inexpensive, efficient, and their environmentally friendly structures make for a truly unique place of residence.

    Still, like very much all major projects, it’s absolutely vital to anticipate every single snag that could get in your way. So be sure to plan ahead to ensure that your shipping container home project gets done right.

    Check out some downloadable guides to help you plan ahead, figure out the snags, and get pretty much everything in your potential project done properly.

  2. Has anyone any experience with the solution they spray on pickup beds? Rhino covering or some such. Saw a program on it..might have been Mythbusters..that stuff is pretty bullet proof and definitely waterproof
