Finish construction documents for your shipping container home and submit to building authority for permitting. Begin grading work including any required excavation for foundation, utilities, storm water management, and septic. When the shipping containers arrive on site, they are crane-lifted one by one onto the foundation, hooked into place, and welded down to marry them completely to the foundation. Install interior framing, insulation, heating and cooling systems, plumbing, electrical, and rough out all fixtures.
Staged inspections through the build with contractor and building official - foundation, plumbing and electrical, architectural, and fire. The design is remarkably similar to Flynn’s house in Tron, built from three containers stacked crosswise upon two, leaving room for two big rolling doors on the front and back. Trolling about a bit more, though, one can find numerous variants, including versions with large cuts in the upstairs walls, creating at least one fairly large room. The bad news, from what I can tell, is that the Quik House works pretty much like a kit car. Still, this design is inspiring, and shows that building such a home entirely on one’s own is certainly doable. This guy has a lot to say about container homes – and my impression is that they can be a LOT cheaper!
I, too, think this sounds a little pricey on the surface, but Chuck, keep in mind that you’re in the Dallas area, which has some of the cheapest housing in the country. One of the problems with this design is the above 40ft container spanning sideways on top of 2 x 20 ft containers is they will need extensive modification to support the bearing weight.
And Bob Villa did some segments on one of their projects that you’d never know were build with containers. Insulation would be my biggest worry, by the time you put in serious insulation, the interior spaces will be much smaller.
I live in Southern California and I’m seriously considering replacing my house, which is being consumed by termites, with containers. Also, there are thousands of these things arriving weekly from China at the Port of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and the same volume isn’t being shipped back.
You could use corrugated sheet roofing or even solar panels over the containers, leaving room under it for air conditioning machines for the interior.
I am currently waiting for spring to start my home using 2 40′HC containers offset like the trim home without the third container on top. They can be cheap forms of building, but mostly if you do your own labor as much as possible.
And if your worried about living space reduction due to insulating and walls, you can always put the insulation on the outside of the home and use a standard facing like vinyl siding. Will, we are in the beginning planning stages of our own container home in Fayetteville, PA.
Budget Shipping Containers now offer a comprehensive range of made-to-order shipping container staircases for access to cargo doors. With each customer potentially having a different requirement we thought it was essential that custom built staircases were an option for us to offer.

As with all things container related it is essential the ground where the staircase will be positioned is suitable.

In recent years, ISO containers have started being used for countless applications outside of the shipping world.
The plug-and -play ISO DOOR™ simply locks on to side, ends (or links between sides or ends) of the ISO shipping container, utilizing the ISO tandemlok quick attach.
Hydroswing® door copies, usually offered by bifold manufacturers, are popping up regularly. The fact that the Hydroswing® Door is pre hung in its very own load bearing frame, allowed for an evolution. These heavy-gauge steel containers are so strong—each is designed to carry 57,000 pounds—that they need only be fastened at the corners to hold fast, much as they would be on a ship. Large glass garage doors open on the front and back, permitting him to store his bike right in the living room and giving his living room a water-front view. He’s configured the layout similarly, too, at least from what we can see online, setting a living room downstairs between the two doors with a kitchen off to the side on the first floor and a bedroom and other living areas upstairs. Most configurations feature a single winding staircase on one side, but some include more complex straight-stair designs. Building a home from containers raises some serious issues for most folks, ranging from difficulty in meeting architectural and building codes to convincing others in the area that containers aren’t just for hobos. Anyone have an idea what a “typical” price for a standard 40-foot container might be? They retrofit the containers for a specific project – this includes structural support and insulation etc.
We can either quote for delivering the item and lifting it off (hiab delivery) or we can quote for delivering and offloading being covered by yourselves. August 2014 13:20 by Hydroswing in General, Industrial Doors, ISO Container Doors 0 ISO containers (also known as intermodal containers) are used to store and move materials and products efficiently and securely in the global containerized intermodal freight transport system. Nonetheless, we had a few stumbling blocks in our early production structure and knew we had to make some changes and come to our buyers more cost effectively. Our customers are choosing the Hydroswing® door for security, wind load strength, and overall building use and efficiency. Following many requests for the growing use of ISO shipping containers for architecture, military and commercial industries, the patent pending "plug and play" door for ISO Containers emerged.

In the example above, the shipping container bottom corner blocks are welded to steel plates imbedded in the concrete slab to secure the house to the foundation. But the idea of a small, efficient (both in terms of resources and space) home strikes me as a seriously cool deal. Aren’t all three of the top containers in this design (background of the second image) supported at each corner?
The fact that the Hydroswing® hydraulic door is pre hung in its very own load bearing frame, allowed the evolution and growing use of ISO shipping containers.
With necessity being the mother of invention, it was only a matter of time before bifold and roller doors would be eclipsed by hydraulics, a more efficient option for aviation, agriculture and architecture sectors. Hydroswing® is now being manufactured in ISO 9001 approved global manufacturing plants allowing for a 25+% price cost reduction in the final product.
Currently, we are the only distributor of the original Hydroswing®, and anything else is just a knock-off. The ISO DOOR™ simply locks onto the side, ends or links between side or ends of the the ISO shipping container utilizing the ISO "tandelock" quick attach. The design team is now located in various countries, all with valuable input to the Hydroswing® brand. All corner blocks are welded to each other to secure the containers to themselves in the image below.
Plop something similar down on a lake or near the beach, and I think I’d be quite happy in it. Or are you saying that having an upper container resting on the middle of a lower container is weak (because the lower container is bearing the load at a point other than its corners)? We are hitting the market again with the original high quality hydraulic doors, but at a bifold price, square foot for square foot. This is the "missing link" for container shelter doors for mining and military operations as well as many other industries.
Bottom line: Kalkin recommends budgeting between $125 and $165 per square foot for the entire project (excluding land). Sized accordingly, a hydraulic door can be fitted to the ISO shipping container on either of the sides, ends or top and can also be used for "cross-dooring" between containers for shelter buildings. There are about 17 million intermodal containers in the world of varying types to suit different cargoes. It also allows instant re-purposing of the old shipping container and effective building of shipping container shelters of any size. With Hydroswing® providing a superior door solution, there are now endless possibilities for mobile shelters for UAV's, mining, exploration equipment and disaster relief operations.
