Your use of this website constitutes acknowledgement and acceptance of our Terms & Conditions. Home STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS AND TERMINOLOGY FOR A TYPICAL 20' ISO CARGO SHIPPING CONTAINER. Building homes, shelters, and survival bunkers from recycled shipping containers is a very economical and efficient way to build your home. Shipping container homes are the PERFECT base to start building you off grid home or cabin. 1280 square foot ranch style home for less than $10,000 in materials. This design, like most others I’ve designed uses a minimalist approach to maximize livable floor space. The two containers off the each side form the outer walls, and contain the bedrooms and bathroom.
The rear of the house doesn’t have to be a glass wall, but I like it because it just looks nice, and will give the interior space a large feel opening onto the back patio.
This is a more complex design than my first $10k 1280 Sqft Ranch Style Container Home using two shipping containers, however the cost of extra materials to complete the railing, upper decks, and extra structural materials needed to support the added weight should still have this shipping container home coming in under $40k including the solar panels.
The strawbale will be about $5 per bale and we’ll need about 200, so $1000 for the strawbales. Not bad for a 3 story 3000 square foot house… This is cutting it close, and we can find tune these numbers, but this whole system is very doable for under $100k.
4 large helix wind turbines and a solar panel array with 48 solar panels generate a combined power of 44,000 watts.
Here is a simple yet practical design I made that accents the simplicity of the shipping container, yet is paneled and sided such that it’s indistinguishable from a traditional contemporary home design.
This unit is complete with Solar Power and a Atmospheric Water Generator to supply drinking water and power. This next design is a spin on the above design, but with a sun deck and sliding glass door atop the ground floor.

Some people balk at the idea of living a a shipping container home, but if designed correctly, and smartly, you can design a home which is indistinguishable from traditional homes.
From one extreme to the other, cheap and small, to extremely large and extravagant these are some of the most popular home design styles made from shipping containers.
1280 square feet is a good size to start out, and even if you were to splurge a little with more expensive materials you could double the cost to $20k and still have one very affordable, and very nice home. The bottom back glass wall faces west to catch the afternoon and evening sun, and the top deck is for viewing those beautiful desert sunsets over the mountaintops.


The first design is small 2 story, but the second is a 3 story, and the 3rd is a massive Container Castle at nearly 10,000 square feet with at least 8 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms.
4 Stories, consists of 18 40? shipping containers forming a ring around a central atrium like vertical space 32 feet tall by 40?40 (1600 sqft) wide in the center. This contemporary unit has everything the first has, and the addition of and additional 160 square foot sun deck. The flooring is usually constructed of laminated wood planks, plywood sheets, or other composition material and is screwed or bolted to the cross members.
A little bit of creativity, paneling, flooring, and siding and from the street you’d never be able to tell that a container home is made from large steel modular boxes. If you build a traditional home or cabin, and ever have to move, you can’t take your home with you, which forces you to sell it and start from scratch.
When you turn a used shipping container into a home, you’re helping contribute to the betterment of the world. Technically, I could add another 8 feet to the width and increase the common area floor space by 33% to 960 square feet, but that would increase costs by $3000-$5000 more in materials.
Adding more windows to the south facing side of the home will also capture more of the Sun’s energy.
The four stories total a square footage of 5120 sqft not counting the 4 40? towers at each corner of the castle. The primary idea of course being affordability and simplicity, plus the added benefit of a good sized 3 bedroom home design. This 2720 square foot workshop could be built for about $25,000 including foundation, roof, and electrical. The pricing presented here are for BARE BONES materials, does not include freight, moving, crane rental, or any amenities. Anyone is welcome to use this design under an Open Source Creative Commons Share and Share Alike License, with credit given to this page.
Some containers have welded steel or aluminum flooring, sandwhich panels or a combination of metal and wood. Another very powerful incentive for creating your home from shipping containers is strength. I’m not sure is this is a good thing in the desert, but, it’s probably good in colder climates.
This means you can probably place these in the desert anywhere in the world and still stay cool in 100-120 degree heat. If you shop around you can buy an acre or more of land for about $30k-$40k here in southern California. Each tower level has a floor space of 64 sqft, for a total of 1024 square feet within all 4 towers.
There is a 10 foot round dome skylight on the roof which lets in plenty of sunlight to grow many species of plants and even trees INSIDE the castle.
Much stronger than stick built homes, and in some cases, stronger than brick or stone homes.
