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.
