Shipping Container Homes Book Series – Book 174

Container Home Book 174 – 3 x 40′ Container Home – Brazil

Today’s featured Container Home project was built using 3 x 40′ Type 1A Containers in Daniela, Florianópolis Santa Catarina, Brazil by Ghiorzitavares Architecture.

This single story home has a total area of 130m2 ( approx 1400 sqft ) including 2 Bedrooms, walk in suite in the Master, office, living room and kitchen, social bathroom, toilet facing the pool and laundry.

The project began when the customers decided to change from Masonry Construction to the use of Containers, seeking a faster construction speed and lower cost.

Due to the excellent soil condition of the land, the designers where able to use a foundation much lighter than if designed for a masonry construction, also reducing costs in this area.

This is the 174th Container Home we have featured in this format for our Readers. You can download the entire back catalog of all 174 Books, an additional 30 Container Homes in our “ The 30 Most Influential Container Homes ever Built” Book, a free copy of our 3D Container Home Design Software, Technical Drawings and Whitepapers and Access our Video Training Tutorial Series – in our Members Area.
