25+ Shipping Container House Plans

Make sure you buy containers that are good condition and that you see them before purchasing. Make sure they have not been used to ship hazardous materials like toxic chemicals. See if you can get the newest ones available, like a one-trip container – sometimes they don’t cost that much more. Know the relevant regulations in the area where you want to build – planning, zoning, and building codes. Use a contractor or contractors who have previously worked with containers. Learn how to properly insulate your containers to keep out cold air and the elements like rain, and to manage condensation properly. Make sure the containers you purchase are structurally sound, in other words no rust, cracks or too many dents. Make sure they were not sprayed with toxic chemicals such as pesticides or disinfectants.
