Those are rad. Never seen one in person but lots of great resources online. Would love to know how sound / heat insulation is.
Used containers ARE cheap, but the modifications won't be. Interior height is ~7ft on insulated versions, so you'd need to figure a way to extend the height, which likely means a lot of welding and metal work.
2x4's and galvalum would be a lot more economical, and give you the same look.
yes, i've been wanting to make my studio out of these for a while... if you diy it's pretty cost effective. if you get architects involved it's eye watering. hoping for some middle way...
My brother has been obsessed with container housing for years, and my mate who is an architect did a project using them.
The main problem with them is condensation. That needs a LOT of attention.
Great idea though, quite cheap.
Probably not allowed in your neighborhood.... I imagine it would be tough to get these up to strict code.
Well, I wouldn't be building this in Brooklyn, but if I land back in the Midwest where I have property, then this is totally viable.
this thread is inspirational i like what i see
I honestly don't know much about this trend, but I do have one question. Why are all of these containers being reused? What makes them unusable for car-go suddenly, yet fine for housing material?
I really want one but i'm not sure i'll ever get a building permit
Btw will this kind of construction last 100 years?
