With 2 40-feet shipping containers one can easily build a house, as always we design a simple home even ourselves can build it, it’s the case of this house, which you can see now how to build it step by step.
One key is to find a flat land, as in the conventional constructions this will facilitate the work and therefore its final cost. The shipping containers are very light so that the foundations will be minimal.
Here you can see the arrival of the containers to the construction place, we need a crane to install them anywhere we want, in just a morning we can place them easily.
A good planning of the interiors will reduce considerably the final costs, especially if it’s as simple as possible. Taking advantage of the natural walls of the container to sectorize it can be a good idea.
Another good idea is to use the surplus metal sheets from the containers to build a porch, as yo can see on these photos.
Buy doors and windows to simplify the work, to build them by ourselves can be an adventure.
It is not necessary to isolate the outside, but you must isolate the inside if you live in an extreme clima. You only have to create a cladding on the walls, we can use wooden slats and then cover them with sheets of plasterboard, don’t forget to apply into it a suitable insulating layer that suits with your clima.
