40' foot container house

by Sally

I would love to build a medium size shipping container house using two 40' containers. The plan is fairly basic but has everything I need in the way of rooms it is also all open plan except for the bedroom/office at the end.

The plan looks like it may have stairs to the second floor but I am only going to have one level and possibly make a deck on top of the roof which would be so cool.

I also love the pools made out of shipping containers maybe just a 6 metre one, I have added that to my wish list for after I build my container house.

I am really keen to build a shipping container house as I find them fascinating in the way that the containers are being recycled into buildings, houses and many other structures.

My Container House
by: Sally

I am very excited about building the container house still in planning mode, haven't started building yet but it looks like being about $100-120,000 plus the land.

Just curious as to roughly how much it cost to modify your 40footer?
