In this book you will learn how to find, buy, design and build a great and worthwhile shipping container home. You will learn how to throw conventionality out the window and embrace a sustainable home worth living in. Shipping container homes can be difficult to build.

Magnificient

I purchased this book and just as the other reviews said, it is a book full of high quality images of different types of container structures. It's very generic when describing the construction itself, it provide any construction details or information. If you are looking for detail information this book is what your looking for. It provides images, some floor plan distributions and a brief description of each structure. Overall I liked the book it's nice to have.
