Shipping Container Homes Book Series – Book 70

| By | Category: Free Tutorial, Profiled ISBU Project

Following  the incredible popularity of our digital book series – The  Most Influential Shipping Container Homes Ever Built – we  have decided to release a number of expanded  titles  for 2015 showcasing in greater detail some of the  best in Container based Construction from around the World.

Book 70 – Container Home 2.0 – 3 Story + Basement Georgia USA

Today’s featured Shipping Container House Project is another of those Projects we have talked about before on but or some reason it never a received “Featured Home Book Status” and I felt it was time to address that oversight.

Built by Architect Francis Kirkpatrick and Structural Engineer George Runkle in Atlanta Georgia in 2010 this Home uses 6 x Type 1A 40’ HC Containers. At 1873 sqft the Home uses what would be considered a “reversed plan” with the 3 Bedrooms and Living Quarters on the first floor and the kitchen on the upper floor. The Owner wanted to have the Kitchen and the hangout space on the uppermost level to take advantage of the view Atlanta could best offer.

The Container Home is refereed to as ContainerHome2.0 due to the fact that the Owner also has an earlier Container Home that uses a similar 6 Container 3 Story configuration on the same block.

The House is insulated with Spray Foam Insulation and low-e double pane glass. There are 3 high efficiency HVAC systems, zoned for each level. The house is pre-wired for solar panels. It also features a rain barrel collection system.

  1. Hoping to start a small project i.e. is to sell at a lower price for needy poor people in our country.

    We will need your advise and guidance to launch this project.
