If you are considering modular or prefab home, building with recycled shipping containers is worth taking a look at.
Good resource is the Residential Shipping Container Primer website. A SHOWCASE OF SHIPPING CONTAINER HOMES AND BUILDINGDS, AND A DO IT YOURSELF (DIY) REFERENCE FOR CONVERTING RECYCLED INTERMODAL CARGO SHIPPING CONTAINERS INTO BUILDINGS AND ARCHITECTURE.
Lots of great example buildings, details, facts, and links to other articles…
@PerfectCareer4uCom hard not to see how shipping containers are very very tough.
in a free nation what your neighbors think should not matter.
looks like hell
@MCArchangel777 taxes really is on the land you have. If you buy land in an expensive neighborhood, yeah your taxes will be high. If you have land in rural areas or less expensive areas, then the taxes will be cheaper. The main cost to home ownership are the mortgages, and if they are high, then that is a big burden. You can’t raise the price on old shipping containers anytime soon. There are far too many of them sitting around and being a huge clutter. They need to move those.
This smart idea has started in Malaysia too. Check this out
“SMART GREEN HOME 2010” @ youtube search
They’re supposed to be environmentally concious and they’re building a 3,000 sf home?
Not impressed with those still trying to keep up with the Joneses
this is nothing new the japs have been doin this for 20+ years
Remember this in an earthquake their home would be the only one still standing. These containers are made to take 100’s of thousands of pounds of load on them. Lock them together and those 12″ beams I see will hold up in an earthquake.
There is no need for anyone to be really homeless. This can help alot of people.
I can’t believe Redondo Beach Politics allowed this project! Times are changing! I love it!

wow ive been container camping for years and people just started picking up on it…
Nice I want one!
cool would love to see an update of the first house.
i heard they bring them to your place and give them to you for 3000
I’m definitely gonna do this some day. I’d probably convert a single container, then add on as I see fit. That’s the great thing about this idea, adding on would be a hell of a lot more simple than with a regular home.
The problem is that once there is more demand for these kind of homes, and more contractors realize that this business is “booming”, the costs of building/buying these types of homes will go up, and so will the taxes. The purpose of having a home like this will be completely invalidated. At the end of the day, businesses, real estate, and the tax man always find a way to get their grubby little hands into your wallet.
waiting for the day when newscasters come up with another word for describing container houses other than “creative”
Really cool, thanks for posting this video.

I work in construction. A flat bed tipper truck is the most cost effective way of moving them. About $120-$150 per container within afew hours of pick-up and drop off. Crane hire to stack them neatly can be pricey, about $500 for 1/2 day. You can stack these in no time. If there is a crane place working near by it is cheaper to approach the driver and get him to do it for cash on the way back to the depo.
