Shipping Container Homes Book Series – Book 79

| 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 2016 showcasing in greater detail some of the  best in Container based Construction from around the World.

Shipping Container Homes Book 79 – 496 sqft – Houston Texas USA

Today’s featured Container Home was constructed in an Historic Area of Houston Texas and and required approval of the city’s Historic Commission.

The clients wanted a simple structure that would not consume all of the available back yard space. The brief was for the structure to act as a Guest House, Storage, Home Office Space and Covered parking.

The use of Shipping Containers was suggested by the designer/builder Shane Cook Designs because the clients were also interested in doing something interesting and unordinary. The 24’x8′ deck serves as a usable visual extension of the narrow living area.

A custom graffiti graphic was commissioned by the owner.
