Welcome to our shipping container home. Kick your flip-flops off, beware of the dog and come on in! It started with a dream! We followed through with modeling a concept and finally realized our ambition to built a home using four shipping containers.
Most of my adult life I’ve lived in warehouses, above pubs, hotels and condos. The very thought of living in a traditional house seems quite boring to me so when I first stumbled upon the idea of building a shipping container home, I was instantly hooked. Fortunately my wife was all for it too.
We have recently had our dream home featured in the ‘Container Homes’ book series and you can get your dirty hands on a digital copy by visiting their website here and downloading the ‘Container Home Book 161 – Parallel Offset with Atrium Home‘.
Alternatively, you can get a PDF version here: Shipping-Container-Homes-Book-161-Trat-Thailand
The Container Homes website is full of vital information and some tremendous resources including: 3D Shipping Container Home Design Software, Shipping Container Drawings, Video Tutorials and Shipping Container House Plans to name but a few. If you are interested in how to build a shipping container home, it should be your first port of call.

Are You Building a Shipping Container Home?
We get asked lots of questions about how we approached designing and constructing a home made from shipping containers. “What’s it like actually living in a box?” “Doesn’t it get really hot inside?” and of course ‘How much did it cost to build a shipping container home?’
