An worth purchase!!

It is a comprehensive schematic type book. I expected a little bit of more variety and creativity with some color pictures of different styles. It is almost like a home depot manual very cut and dry and in black and white inside. It is meant to be a true builders manual for a shipping container home.

Excellent

This book is a great starting place for those interested in a container home. Some of the floor plans are a little elaberate for a container home, but its all in what a person likes and is willing to pay for. It offers good suggestions on what you can and can not do the “right” way. It is very informative. Overall it is an easy read that will spark your interest.

The book is really great one for those who want to learn more about purchasing or construction a shipping container home but do not know where to start. This book is surely informative, it's full of valuable information, from the basics to planning and designing your own shipping container home.

I was super excited when I found this book - and after reading it, I am even more excited to create myself a home in a shipping container.
This book was really helpful and includes basically all the information you need to know, including measurements for your furniture to fit. It's a cheaper way, but that doesn't mean it will be less of a home to you.

The book provided a useful overview for converting containers into homes. A list of possible references to get further details on main topics would make it perfect.

When I saw the title “shipping container homes”, I became curious because it is my first time of actually hearing such.
The book is quite interesting and gave some benefits of having a shipping container home. However, I think I prefer my modern apartment.

This book is much more than I expected. I've been looking for an inspiring book on container houses for a while, and although I went through every book on small homes in a local bookstore, none of them had what I was looking for. Anyone interested in building and design should have this book. Lots of useful information. The book offers an uncomplicated way of living in an affordable package. Thank you.
