But usually for me the smaller the better because I like efficiency and the idea of not going beyond our needs too much.
In this post I’m going to show you an example of what can be done with a couple of recycled shipping containers. I also like the exposed beams and I love the structure they built to combine the two containers and make the entire thing one awesome home. If you enjoyed this shipping container house you’ll love our free daily tiny house newsletter! It also occurred to me that two box trucks could be parked head to toe with the boxes almost touching. I had these thoughts when I was brainstorming inexpensive urban alternatives to overpriced row homes. Put those containers underground and make yourself a underground bunker home for the up coming Apocalypse. I have helped design and build a few shipping container homes and there are lots of ways they can be modified. I designed one that is insulated with strawbales on the outside and stucco for a super insulated and strong shipping container home.
LaMar, I’d love to know how you protected the metal exterior from moisture with the strawbales up against the container, and what is done to keep animals from nesting inside the straw bales. Hi Mike, the strawbales are left 1 inch space from the container and that space is filled with pea gravel.
Are there any references on how to build out and finish containers & interiors you know of? This site is a very valuable resource, as it walks through the complete construction, start to finish. Sure looks like it, and it also looks like the Containers of Hope would be a more expensive version. You could easily secure the doors but you bring up a problem I see revealed in you question. I really like the looks of this two container home but have a problem withe cost of such a home. If all that Tiny House blogs showcased were low end, bare knuckle tiny homes on wheels with exposed plywood walls, a futon, a water jug and a sawdust bucket, the audience that would draw inspiration for downsizing would be miniscule.
As an architect who specializes in add-ons to high end homes in Chicago, I am constantly repurposing away hundreds of thousands of dollars of fixtures, appliances, wood paneling and windows per year to my friends and family. And since we all have Free Will, you are certainly within your rights to create a container home as low cost as makes you happy.

Most manufactures usually don’t promote the fact that they can build non standard equipment built to the customers specification, this can be done, but the customer should consider that as with any industry there is likely to be a premium to pay when building anything that is non standard.
Here at Multiboxx, we can make any size container between the sizes of 6ft and 53ft in length and the standard 8′ width, we can also produce the wider Pallet wide containers. We remain committed to finding the best and most cost effective solution of shipping non standard containers world wide. A New York couple took the creative route when it came to finding affordable real estate in the city building a home entirelly out of shipping containers.
David Boyle and his wife Michele Bertomen purchased a 20-by-40-foot plot of land in 2008 in Williamsburg -- a trendy, up-and-coming neighborhood of Brooklyn. The project was officially completed in 2012, but the couple did experience some hurdles along the way.
Boyle and Bertomen plan to run a nonprofit out of the home to work on quality of life issues with the hopes that the space will serve the Williamsburg community as a whole.
He has a passion for exploring and sharing tiny homes (from yurts and RVs to tiny cabins and cottages) and inspiring simple living stories.
I’m quite keen on both the exterior quirkiness and the supreme openess and light of the interior. One of my focuses has been on converting box trucks that will no longer be used on the road.
The meeting faces could be removed and framed, which would effectively double the interior space. Empty lots with good privacy are affordable, whereas lots with any technically-livable structure sell for ten times as much. He goes into detail on his recommended interior wall method (wood 2×3 studs, and spray insulation).
I kinda like the fact that the one featured on this page doesn’t attempt to hide its origins. Could someone close you inside with that mechanism with no release to let you out of there???
I had to bring my laptop to a computer expert, have him strip out the software and download my old browser. Four cracked ribs, brutal blunt force trauma to my internal organs and a severely bruised hip bone.
I have seen Mr sly here and there, but Alex took the dates off the postings, so some may be older, you can’t tell from when.
Also the customer should consider issues with regarding transportation of that equipment from the place of manufacture to the customers location, especially for over sized equipment.

However increasing the width any more than 2.55 m wide can lead to issues when trying to transport the container. The couple purchased six shipping containers at $1,500 each in potentially the first private residence made exclusively of that material. At one point even received a stop-work order from the Department of Buildings over the lack of open space in the back yard area among other issues. We invite you to send in your story and tiny home photos too so we can re-share and inspire others towards a simple life too.
If the engine is running poorly, you can get one inexpensively and limp it to a final resting spot on your land, where it will live to serve a new purpose.
The joint on the outside could be protected with a roll of instant roof (the best product ever), rendering it almost invisible. The bales sit on a gravel and rail road tie base and the stucco extends to the ground so rodents can’t get in. The only thing that would bother me is the fact that the opening mechanisms for the shipping container doors are still on the outside. On my latest redo, I took out $15,000 of Kohler bathroom fixtures because the new owner HATED the Jet Black colour that the previous owner loved. Non standard containers will have to be shipped empty and if they are oversized may have to take up more than one slot on the vessel which of course will increase the cost of shipping that container. I hate when there's only a limited amount of photos to inspire a person when 10 minutes more of taking photos could have supplied a more complete appreciation.
I know that I deeply appreciate seeing both ends of the scale but I lean more heavily toward the upscale end of design because that’s what makes my family happy and we can afford it. Whether we outright purchase the items, barter for them, go to craigslist or Dumpster Dive, who knows what inspiration these high end homes can provide? I sold them for $2,000.00 to my best friend who installed them in his own home this Winter. Though by no means small these homes reused the containers and are a safe building alternative. Cement pilings are poured with steel plates on top with the containers welded to the plates.
