| 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 2015 showcasing in greater detail some of the  best in Container based Construction from around the World.

Container Homes Book 43 – $60,000 USD Self Built Hybrid Container Home

Today’s Container Home has been constructed using 3 x Type 1A 40’ Shipping Containers in a Hybrid Configuration.

Self Built ( DIY ) in Le Havre France by an Owner Builder couple Yannick & Sandra.

The design of this house is part of an experimental approach to research in the areas of housing, energy, recycling, self-construction and water treatment in phyto-purification.

At 1200 sqft this Container Home was built over a period of 18 months at a cost approx $60,000 USD ( 55,000 Euro ) to complete.

One of the more unusual features of the Home is use of Cork based Insulation Materials.

This booklet – Number 43.

The presentation sets are intended for design inspiration only.
