By Hershel E. Grafton
Retaining the strengths of the basic shipping container’s characteristics, while adapting them into an attractive and livable shipping container home plan is a little more complex than it’s possible for a YouTube video or a even video tutorial to express.
As you probably know, when it comes to the design and construction work involved in building a shipping container home, the devil really is in the details. And there are literally hundreds of details involved in successfully adapting shipping containers for habitation.
If it involves your family’s safety and the local building department, it is NOT going to be as simple as just stacking Lego blocks.
If you are actively considering building a shipping container home, you want to approach it from an educated perspective, and the truth is there are major potential pitfalls to shipping container construction. Here are a few of the major ones to consider when designing your shipping container house plans:
- Obtaining Required Building Permits
- Ensuring Your Design Meets Local Building Codes
- Understanding the Basic Engineering of a Shipping Container Home
Unless you’re an engineer yourself or have experience in alternative building methods you are probably going to be a bit out of your depth in designing and building your own shipping container home, even more so if you plan on acting as the general contractor for the project. For a project of this scale you really need a solid guide and design software to ensure your are doing everything right, it’s correctly engineered and you are meeting local building codes and ordinances.
