Great Information

loved it. I listened 4 times. Before listening, I didn't know where to start. Now that I have knowledge about container homes, I am more excited about purchasing a prefabricated ISBU.

very good for complete beginners

if you have done research and thought about going through with making shipping containers into your home a reality then this will most likely be just a refresh or repeat of what you already know

Very Basic, very short.

The information provided was helpful, but not that well presented. Info provided was also quite repetative.

Exceptional

As a minimalist I try to live with the least amount of physical possessions as I possibly can. This guide was great because it outlined everything I needed to know about getting myself set up with a shipping container house.

Factual

Factual but a bit boring and pretty simplified. it could have been padded out a little more and have been read with more gusto.

informative

I really enjoyed this book. alot of good information regarding shipping container homes. I was grateful for the information regarding Australian customs laws, that was a consideration I had not considered as yet. would love to read some more books regarding shipping container homes, maybe with some more information regards to the different types of house insulation and the difference between insulating the inside verse outside of the property. thanks.
