Shipping Container Homes

| By | Category: Samples and Demo Models

The interest in converting old Shipping Containers into real world homes is exploding. Following a discussion with a Architect friend about the application of our Home Design Software to this design niche I was rather surprised by just how many people are researching and interested in Shipping  Container Homes and Container House Design.

A few years ago we created an add on module for our Home Design Software for the task of visualization of Shipping Container Modules in the Built Environment, now I am more aware of just how many people are interested in this area I have decided to make those library modules into a public release of our Home Software.

If you are interested in Shipping Container Design you might be interested in these two design resources that I came across in my research.

The first is a book called Intermodal Shipping Container Small Steel Buildings which is quite mouth full but its a good resource.

It explains how to purchase steel cargo containers and modify them for use as buildings saving up to 40% over tradition construction methods. ‘

Intermodal Shipping Container Small Steel Buildings is 116 pages and includes photos, diagrams, and plans.

The second is a 200 page Illustrated Manual of Shipping Container Home Design

This is a 200 Page Illustrated Manual Athat you can download without waiting for the book shippment.

I have included a series of photographs that show some truly wonderful examples of design genre using this resource – how wonderful they are – who would have thought that these beautiful homes began life as humble shipping containers.
