Shipping Container House Plan Book Series – Book 44

| 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.

Book 44 – 640 sqft Self Build Container Home – 2 x 40′ Type 1A Containers.

Today’s featured Container Home was Self Built by Matias Duccós in Urugauy.

It utilizes 2 x Type 1A 40′ HC Containers that have been parallel aligned with a 40 % offset and affixed to Concrete Pier style Foundation.

The Containers where placed on the piers by Crane and then modified on site.

The Home uses a Steel Internal Frame Out ( Common in Uraguay ) and Foil Backed Matt Insulation and Drywall for Internal Fitout.

Perhaps the most inviting feature of the Home is the Hammock –  that I am sure Matias will use to enjoy a well earned rest.

This booklet – Number 44.

The presentation sets are intended for design inspiration only.

  1. Great and simple design for a shipping container house with the containers slightly offset. Love the blue colour and the porch/verandah and deck out the front. A easier design to build but still looks great.
