Shipping Container Homes Book Series – Book 83

| 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.

Container Homes Book 83 – Elevated and Enhanced Security Container Home

Today’s featured Container is a good example of the Massive Cost Savings that can be achieved with Container based Construction.

Many people are aware of the potential cost savings that can be achieved using Container based Construction but to realize the full potential of this Construction Method you have to use it to “Solve Problems” not simply as a substitute for “ run of the mill” Stick based Construction – those savings are far more modest.

The greater the number of potential problems you can solve the greater the potential savings that are to be made !

With this in mind take a look at this Elevated Container Home built in Argentina by Box House.

The brief – to build an elevated, termite and fire resistant structure with enhanced security capabilities when left unattended for extended periods ( holidays etc ) – if you have even a modest amount of construction knowledge you will immediately appreciate what it would cost to meet the same level of “capability” in each of these areas – elevated, termite resistant, fire resistant and enhanced security ( note the sliding lock up door )  using stick or concrete construction methods – the short answer – a Container based Project like this represents “ Massive Savings” easily in the order 50% or more !

Fairly obviously the single 40’ HC Type 1A Container and the principals used here could be expanded upon to a large Project.
