A Container House (15 pics)

Posted in Arts » Design   12 Jul 2011   / 13111 views

This marvelous and ultra modern looking house was built inside a shipping container. It’s an absolutely beautiful house, complete with all of the amenities, including a skylight.

 

Here’s another example of using containers as a place to live. It is in France and they are used as student dorm rooms.

I wonder if is indeed cheaper to build this way? I know that it is not here in the US of A...I bid a job with containers and the amount of welding and reinforcement required completely eliminates any cost savings.

re: too expensive,
i can't help but wonder how ambitious your people were trying to be. an ordinary container should be able to hold a substantial amount of weight as is. so if your amenities are modest i would think that should work, in the same spirit of a low-cost container home.

re: noise pollution,
not that i'm an expert or anything, but sound-proofing is not difficult or expensive. a thin layer of foam and cardboard works wonders in the insulation layer. perhaps some form of shock-absorption in the base. *shrug*

The problem is the dorms in northern France were already sound proofed, yet they seem to be an issue with regards to resonance.

It does seem to be a viable option in terms of economics; however that student dorm in the north of France seems to have problems with noise pollution, I remember hearing that the tenants could hear and feel any vibration coming from the busy streets. So in a urban setting it might not be the best option.

A container costs between 10.000 and 100.000 (new or old) And they are not isolated at all!

In Holland we have them in busy student cities to build big student buildings in a short while! Pretty big for a student (13.4m by 2.6m)

you can buy them for around $2000 used here in the states.

We use them here on the farm for storage.
