Publisher's Summary

Instead of looking at shipping containers as a waste disposal issue, we can view them as a gigantic abundance of a potential enormous building material frenzy. Shipping containers are instantly available across the world. Many engineers and construction builders are taking advantage of this situation and are starting to build container homes out of these units. They are recycling something into livable homes for families to live in and to feel secure in.

Good basic info about shipping container houses.

Good basic info abput shipping containers. Felt a little repetitive. Also, I wished there were more details regarding types of insulation and common building codes. Overall, good book though.
