| By | Category: Free Tutorial, Profiled ISBU Home Projects

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 2013 showcasing in greater detail some of the  best in Container based Construction from around the World.

Shipping Container House Book 14 – Affordable Multi-Dwelling Housing

This week’s featured Shipping Container Home comes from Vancouver Canada. The owner is the Atira Women’s Resource Society.

The three story high development features 12 seperate units that range in size from 280 – 290 square feet net living area.

The units are fully self contained, with kitchens, bathrooms and in-suite laundry and the development meets all current building codes and in some case exceeds code, e.g.insulation and sound transference and each floor is linked by an external staircase.

Hard construction costs were $82,500 per unit


Number of Containers: 12 x Type 1A Shipping Containers

This booklet – Number 14, is free as an electronic  download.

The presentation sets are intended for design inspiration and/ or obtaining bids only.
