This project is a villa made with 8 shipping containers of different sizes. This is a good example of how to create a great home only whith the shipping containers, without any special design, just using the containers in the most optimal way possible to achieve a good result in surfaces and final cost.
The idea is to use 4 containers of 40-feet, for a large ground floor, of about 120m2 ( 1.300 square feet), and use 4 20-feet containers in the first plant, which will give us a surface of 60 M2 ( 750 square feet. ) closed, and also a large terrace of 60 m2 (750 square feet) too.
The cover was performed using sandwich panels and a metallic coat applied over the top, with a light tilt to only one side.
Much of the exterior has been coated with wooden planks, the floors and the structure frames of the containers, however the container walls have no exterior cover, so the internal insulation must be considerable .
The approximate cost of this property would be € 120,000 ($ 150,000) using low quality materials.
