Design a Container House

Define

The challenge is to build a container home with old shipping containers. Shipping containers must be between 40 feet x 8 feet in length and 9 feet 6 inches tall. Containers if done correctly, can become livable spaces. Because of their intended purpose shipping containers are weather proof, water resistant and are easily able to be stacked.

It is made of recycled materials, such as old shipping containers and bottles. The product is a modular home that can be easily transported and assembled. The Container House is perfect for people who want to live a sustainable lifestyle and/or move to a new city. It is always interesting to play zodiac casino online with friends but after reading reviews about it because many people do not find good casino.

Collect Info

To start off I will be using 3 containers each 8x40 feet and 9 feet tall, but cutting and making one container into 2 separate containers. Id like to make this home as livable as possible, my clients have a story, They're a vegan menial couple trying out the new tiny home lifestyle, they've asked me to make their dream tiny home to house 2 adults and one dog, in order to meet their needs I will incorporate all important features all homes have, including: Kitchen, master bed room, living room, closet storage, bathroom, an at home office, (for the husband, hes a stock trader) I will also add a balcony with a green house so home owners can have a place to grow plants and food, since they're on a plant based diet. The bed room will be half of a container home so 20 feet x 8 feet and 9 feet tall and will be up stairs, still leaving plenty of room in side for a king bed, dressers and a vanity. In the end this home will be 48 feet x 16 feet and 18 feet tall on one side and 8 on the other leaving a balcony for the green house. This couple has decided to only allow a budget of $30,000, after 3 shipping containers ($6,000 each) I will be working with about $12,000 to fully furnish this how to make it livable here on the east coast. After extensive research on container homes I chose to place this container home preferably in a sunny place open place in northern New Jersey. I've decided to put this home on the out skirts of Boonton town ship some where on Hillcrest road. This location will be perfect for my clients as they're home is still in the woods and they really get to experience Kincaid woods, but are also 39 miles away from New York city.

Brainstorm Ideas

As I mentioned I will be including all basic home necessities : Kitchen, master bed room, living room, closet storage, bathroom, an at home office, (for the husband, hes a stock trader) I will also add a balcony with a green house so home owners can have a place to grow plants and food, since they're on a plant based diet. The bed room will be half of a container home so 20 feet x 8 feet and 9 feet tall and will be up stairs, still leaving plenty of room in side for a king bed, dressers and a vanity. In the end this home will be 48 feet x 16 feet and 18 feet tall on one side and 8 on the other leaving a balcony for the green house. All my paper sketches are at school still.

I've decided to make the home into a L shape to insure the most open living space. The entrance will lead you straight to the office in living room as well as storage then you can take the spiral stair case up into the master bedroom/ Bathroom. Then, in my opinon the star of the show is the bottom floor that is 24 feet by 20 feet is the living space/ kitchen.

I love the outdoor space.The outdoor space in my opionion would give the small space a bigger feel.I like that idea of the bedroom and bathroom upstairs to give more living space downstairs

Final Design

This is my final design. In the end I'm happy with my work, I've incorporated all the nessicary things a home should have. I decided to make this home as open as possible inside, to make it seem more spacious. In the end I used 3 full container homes and covered 700 sq feet of land.
