Remember that my house was started way ahead of the curve in 2009, so there was a lot that was unknown. What I wish I had known is that building a house from shipping containers cost me a similar amount as a stick built house.
These container projects have been for clients who really like containers or have some tangible need that containers provide such as durability. Certainly the projects that we have been involved in have always been unique.
It’s not a good idea to go it alone if you have a custom home you are interested in. It’s best approached with professional drawing services and competent structural engineering.
We had to learn how to navigate the used container market here in the region before we decided to go with one trip containers. Other than that, I enjoyed every minute of the experience of building this thing.
