Publisher's Summary

Learn how you can save money with insider tips on how to build your shipping container home!

How would you like to pay way less per month and still live in your dream home?

Well, that’s the promise that a shipping container home offers!

These small houses are taking the world by storm at the moment, and rightfully so. Combine a massive oversupply of containers with people looking to live in cheap homes, that are even eco-friendly, and you can see why building container homes is a match made in heaven.

Steel containers may seem unlikely candidates to use as building materials, but nothing could be further from the truth. These containers make for amazingly cheap houses, for the fraction of the cost of a traditional home. The tiny house movement already adopted shipping container construction as a method of building a new home, but you do not need to be a fan of tiny houses to appreciate that containers make for excellent and comfortable homes.

Imagine the possibilities that come with freeing up the financial resources you are now spending on your mortgage!

Well, my friend, you have come to the right place.

This book is a step-by-step guide on how you can build a container home.

You will be taken by the hand. We will cover the basics, such as the advantages of building a house with a container, different container sizes and what you can expect to pay for one. We will also discuss what to consider when laying out the foundation, plumbing, electrical work, interior design and insulation. And we will touch on DIY home containers vs. manufactured homes, how to treat the container to turn it into a safe living space, and how you can turn a small house (because containers can be tiny homes) into a bigger one if you have a family.

Enhance our shipping-container home experience.

I’ve learned so many stuffs from this comprehensive audio book. Ideas that could enhance our shipping container home experience like reusing old shipping containers to construct new buildings has proven to be extremely economical because they are basically being recycled and reused, which therefore makes them less expensive.

intriguing audio piece

Hands off to this book. It covers the basics and also presents the different types of containers and dimensions, as well as how to obtain one and what to put in it. Very intriguing concept but it seems plausible.
