  3. my-main-page.com CONTAIN-IT PORTABLE STORAGE (30 Jul 17) This listing here is for the specific purpose of featuring the latest customization technique which involves installing roll-up doors on the side of these containers. With two partitions equally spaced you might end up with 3 units approximately 13ftx8ft in size in a 40ft long container. Contain-It Portable Storage based in Channahon, Illinois seems to do a lot of these modifications to their containers. I guess they rent them out as mini-storage. And they probably also pay wholesale price for their units making it profitable to rent these out

  4. Visit:  my-main-page.com STUCCO A SHIPPING CONTAINER (6 Jul 17) This might be a very useful item for some of you. However i think the video is missing about spraying a shipping container, but you might find something useful by clicking around the site, plus it is possible that the owners of Mortar Sprayer may know the whereabouts of a substitute video. Sorry, my computer was not loading the video: Go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TZe-0H5Z_o

    ►A friend and artist Mikey Sklar took on the challenge of stuccoing a shipping container. Shipping containers are widely available and fairly affordable from a housing perspective around the world. But one major issue with shipping containers is that they heat up fast during a hot summer day and are not insulated from the cold in winter. A standard stucco application of 3/4in to 1in in depth will add a layer insulation, raise the R value significantly and create a comfortable temperature inside the container for a cozy, homey environment. Take a look at the video below and see how Mikey used his 4 Jet Wall Blaster to easily apply the stucco. Mikeys stucco mix was actually a papercrete mix he designed himself. To learn more about papercrete follow this link.◄

  6. Hanjin Container Ship HANJIN BREAKS STALEMATE   (Oct 28, 2016) That whole situation with Hanjin really shocked me. I guess it helps to confirm the idea that the world economy really is in big trouble.

    ►(VANCOUVER) A container vessel that spent months sitting off Canada's west coast due to the collapse of South Korea shipping company Hanjin docked in Vancouver on Thursday, according to union officials and ship tracking data. The Hanjin Scarlet arrived at DP World's Centerm terminal within the Port of Vancouver by early afternoon, according to Thomson Reuters ship tracking data. The ship, which has 24 crew members, will unload cargo on board, Lahay said. He added that crew members had less than 10 days worth of food and provisions left, and had run out of fresh food. The vessel, with nearly 800 containers on board, had been sitting some 45 km (28 miles) outside Prince Rupert for several months, said Peter Lahay, an inspector and coordinator with the International Transport Workers Federation.◄
  7. Sleepbox Hotel Chiangmai, Thailand SLEEPBOX HOTEL   For those of you wishing to travel to Thailand and visit the northern Chiangmai area, you might want to consider staying at this unique budget hotel made of shipping containers. They have a very nice website with lots of pictures and information about this hotel and you can book your stay there also. Picture on the right is of the hotel exterior.

    ►Sleepbox Chiangmai Hotel is a short 5-minute ride from Jang Sri Poom and Muang Chiangmai Stadium. Offering comfortable rooms, it has free WiFi, which is available throughout the residence and free parking with security. Kad Luang Market is a 10-minute drive from Sleepbox Chiangmai Hotel. Chiangmai International Airport is a 15-minute ride away. On-site parking is available for drivers. Decorated in warm colors, all rooms come with air conditioning, a flat-screen TV and a fridge. En suite bathrooms are fitted with shower facilities. For meals, guests can enjoy local cuisine served at the restaurants located within a 5-minute ride away. If someone mentions a "sleeping box" to you, you may think that they're talking about a micro hotel which you might stay in for a single night. Maybe somewhere near a railway station or perhaps an airport in another country. But in Chiang Mai we have a new type of sleeping box. This came from the simple idea of beating an architectural challenge, in this case taking a collection of ordinary shipping containers with all their good and bad qualities and converting them into something beautiful and, at the same time, cozy and comfortable. The result is Sleep Box: 14 containers of different sizes occupying a triangular area of 800 square meters in central Chiang Mai which together have been transformed into a chic, 21-room, budget-& design-conscious hotel. Each room has its own unique style but by exploiting the fact that our shipping containers share some of the qualities of refrigerators and by using PU foam to fully insulate against the heat of Thailand, guests can also be assured that every room at Sleep Box not only stays at a stable, comfortable temperature but is also energy efficient and environmentally friendly.◄
  8. Suspicious Looking Shipping Containers being loaded onto a ship. CLUB-K CONTAINER SYSTEM   Look what's happening to our beloved shipping container system. I think the attached video is from the year 2013. Who would have guessed that it could be used in this extreme application. Watch the 8 minute long YouTube video to see how it all turns out. I think these systems are already being made in the country of Russia today. Containers being used are the standard 40ft long model. When you go to buy your used or new shipping container be sure and open the doors and check to see what's inside: If you see a bunch of electronic looking panels and some long tubes that might contain missiles, then go back to the yard office and tell them the container you want to buy looks suspicious and request that they show you a different container - one that is empty hopefully.
  9. Freight Farms FREIGHT FARMS   I can't believe this business. It is so ingenious that i cannot believe anyone could come up with this idea. This involves the heavy use of shipping containers to grow vegetables inside on vertical racks with special lighting to help the leafy vegetables grow. I think they are doing pretty well with this unique farming method. They have a nice website with lots of information.
    Deal Of The Day
    Their units consist of a fully-operational hydroponic farm built inside an up-cycled freight container. It is capable of producing yields at commercial-scale in any climate and any season. Before buying one or more of these units please run the numbers on profitability, etc.

    ►Here at Freight Farms, our mission is to create a more sustainable and connected food system by creating the infrastructure to allow local food supply to thrive. The company was founded in 2010 by Jon Friedman and Brad McNamara to facilitate the development of products and services that would allow urban agriculture to become a more competitive industry in food production, and from this shared vision Freight Farms and the very first "Leafy Green Machine" emerged. Over the years, we have grown into a team of motivated individuals with diverse backgrounds, unified by a collective desire to challenge the status quo while simultaneously inspiring positive change in the food system. Freight Farms systems are operating in cities across the United States and Canada, creating year-round access to local, fresh produce for restaurants, universities, corporate campuses, hotels, and small businesses.◄
  10. Container Pool AUSSIE CONTAINER POOLS   This business based in Australia has designed a very interesting product using shipping containers and fiberglass to make portable swimming pools that are very sturdy. Who would of thought of using a fiberglass liner inside a container to form the basis of a swimming pool? "Using extensive research and implementing innovative ways to conserve materials and energy and the up cycling of a shipping container into a swimming pool as a construction technology." They have at least 4 different finish options, plus stairs and modwood deck material. This looks to be really nice, pretty clever.

    ►It is a complete product, all in one, simple and easy. Deciding on an above ground container pool also means that you will save a lot of time as the pool will be delivered as a complete product, with nothing more to do apart from filling it up with water and connecting the pump to the mains. We bring all of these separate parts of a normal pool together to create ONE product that is easy to install and maintain. Our fiberglass work is confidently backed by a 25 year structural warranty so you can swim with a smile.◄

  12. Double Deck Container Home TEXAS CONTAINER HOMES   This is an interesting website in my opinion because it serves several different purposes: One, it's mission is to serve the homeless of a town in Texas, i think called "Tomball". There is a lot of good information on this website. "We are a group of volunteers working together to help Homeless people and Homeless Veterans have suitable housing. We welcome input from anyone interested in Container Homes. Please subscribe, follow and leave a comment. CONSULTATION AVAILABLE ON A COST PLUS BASIS."

    ►In this era of scouring the earth for the magic bullet in home building, few ideas can compete with the weird, pragmatic beauty of the used shipping container. Cheap, strong and easily transportable by boat, truck or train, these big steel structures now litter the ports of America as mementos of our Asian-trade imbalance. (Many more full containers arrive on our shores than depart, so ports either ship them back empty ▬ to the tune of about $900 per ▬ or sell them.) Hurricane proof, flood proof, fire proof, these metal Lego blocks are tough enough to be stacked 12-high empty ▬ and thus can be used in smaller multistory buildings.
    Used containers (which can be picked up for $1,500 to $2,000) often have teak floors and sometimes are insulated. The bright orange, blue and rust corrugated boxes may not appeal to everyone. But contemporary hipsters find them not just the ultimate in postmodern appropriation but aesthetically pleasing as well. And even though containers have little of the crunchy nostalgia of the hay-bale house or the yurt, they trump most other forms of green building because, in the current economy, they are virtually a waste product. Making a building (which can last and last) out of what is essentially a huge piece of industrial detritus takes recycling to a new level. The concept of using shipping containers as buildings is hardly new ▬ institutions like the military have been using the structures as temporary offices, bunk houses and showers for some time. Examples of designers incorporating shipping containers into residential designs date back to 1982. But in the past couple of years, a field known as container architecture has evolved, offering the hope that what was once only a post-industrial pipe dream can emerge as a practical new building form. A handful of architectural firms around the world ▬ from New York to New Zealand ▬ have built prototypes or plans for shipping-container homes. Most of these designers develop each house or project as a one-off, but one prefab factory has begun pumping out little container homes that are not meant for the military encampment or the disaster relief camp. Rather, they are meant for the discerning homeowner avid for something new.◄
  13. Ugly Duckling Container Home UGLY DUCKLING SHIPPING CONTAINER   Here is another private residence created from shipping containers with the exterior left intact and the interior remodeled to a very nice living quarters. This listing consists mostly of pictures plus a whole lot of viewer comments.

    ►This shipping container home might be the ugly duckling on the outside, but the inside screams beautiful swan. Design meets function meets artistic style. It may not look spectacular on the outside, but what it lacks in appeal on the exterior, it more than makes up for inside. It's not really ugly on the outside, and in fact it's actually rather quaint, and slightly appealing in a recycled kind of way. The "Wow Factor" factor strikes you when you view the interior. It just goes to show you that you should never judge a book by it's cover. In this case don't let the outside fool you. This is a home worth a second look.◄
  14. 20ft Standard Container SHINE PYUNG CORPORATION   This business is located in Seoul Korea and it appears to be a very large company specializing in container sales and rentals.

  15. Shipping Container Homestead CONTAINER HOME READYING FOR DETROIT   Here is an interesting project using shipping containers for low cost housing in Detroit. I think it is an attempt to help rebuild the economy in Detroit. Let's wait and see how this plays out.

    ►An unusual home taking shape inside General Motors' sprawling Detroit-Hamtramck Assembly plant is intended to be part of a movement to rebuild the city's economy and deteriorating, disappearing housing stock.

Meanwhile, a nonprofit urban farming group is preparing property a few miles away that will welcome the project, what's believed to be the city's first occupied shipping container homestead. Come spring, the house-in-progress will be delivered to Detroit's North End neighborhood and secured on a foundation where a blighted home once stood. After finishing touches and final inspections, the 40-foot-long former container will feature 320 square feet of living space with two bedrooms, a bathroom and a kitchen, and will serve as home base for a university-student caretakers of a neighborhood farm and agricultural research activities.◄
  16. Urban Bath House SOAK   Soak is the name of a urban bath house business venture located in San Francisco. It appears by the look of their website to be a wholesome operation. Anyway, they have made very nice looking use of shipping containers for this project. In my opinion just the set-up of the containers is justification for including this on Conex Connection.

    ►SOAK is an ecological urban bathhouse. We turned to shipping containers and their beautiful corrugated architecture for a new take on the ritual practice of communal baths. Inside you'll find hot pools, a sauna, solarium, and garden patio. We've created a place for healthy hedonists to gather, soak, and unplug. At SOAK, there are no silence gongs. Sustainability, sociability, and healthy hedonism are SOAK's guiding principles. At SOAK, much of our water is captured rainwater that's been filtered before using, all our electrical needs are met with solar energy, and our hot pools drain into a special filter for graywater which is then transferred to a garden meadow on the back deck. If you take the urban bathhouse concept to its extreme, you get SOAK: A pop-up spa inside of shipping containers. Mobile, autonomous, and sleek. One step further and you get an experiential hub where healthy hedonists hang. SOAK selected the San Francisco based Rebar Design Group, and principal Blaine Merker to design the bathhouse because of their creative thinking, and award winning reputation. «
  17. Spanning Shelter CONTAINER MOUNTED DOMESHELTER   A number of people use this set-up for expanded work or storage space where you have two parallel rows of containers with a usually metal canopy spanning the empty space as shown in the picture to the right. This listing here is linked to an Australian company specializing in the sales & manufacturing of these shelter systems which work well with shipping containers. I think they also sell their products to other countries besides Australia.

    ►AWP Group is an established family owned and operated company dedicated to designing, developing, manufacturing innovative Shade & Shelter solutions, through our well recognized brands DomeShelter™, Westarp and A-Shade. Since its inception, AWP Group's persistent commitment to provide tough, functional products and our dedication to customer service has achieved wide spread recognition throughout Australia and offshore.

  18. Business In A Box BUSINESS IN A BOX   Al Jazeera ran this little piece on television and again it demonstrates the versatility and usefulness of the shipping container. These units appear to be the 20ft long variety mostly. This project organized by Kevin Lee in Toronto, Canada who i think rents them out to people for use as shops. These 20ft boxes are suitable for small businesses like a barber shop, bicycle repair shop, offices & people selling street food.

On a business trip to Ghana, Kevin Lee saw battered, rusty containers used as barber shops and other businesses and decided to bring the idea back to Canada in the form of a program called "Business In A Box". Lee's program connects entrepreneurs with subsidized space, advice on loans and other services and a prime street-level location to sell their products. The program already has 19 stalls and between 30 and 40 people on a waiting list. Al Jazeera's Daniel Lak reports from Toronto.◄

    ►(18 June 2013) Container Ship "MOL Comfort" Suffers Broken Back, Sinks Off Yemen Remains Adrift Off Yemen. 26 crew members of an MOL container ship were forced to abandon ship Monday off Yemen after the ship suffered from catastrophic hull failure and reportedly sank broke in two. The MV MOL Comfort, an 8,000 TEU-type container ship cracked in half about 200 miles from the Yemeni coast at about 12'30″N 60′E while en route from Singapore to Jeddah with a load of 7,041 TEUs. All 26 crew – made up 11 Russians, 1 Ukrainian and 14 Filipinos - escaped the sinking ship on two life rafts and a lifeboat. According to a report by IANS News, the Indian Coast Guard in Mumbai diverted three vessels in the area to assist. The MV Yantian Express was first to arrive on scene and rescued the survivors. The 2008-built MOL Comfort sank a short time later, the report said. Weather at the time was strong winds and seas up to six meters. The ship's operator, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, says that an Emergency Control Headquarters has been established for the incident and MOL is taking company-wide measures to settle the matter. The MOL statement said that damage was "extensive" and that details of the incident were still being confirmed.◄

  24. Container Project KAT5 HOMES   I'm not sure what they do here . . . Maybe showcase container projects around the world and/or build all kinds of commercial and residential structures for people anywhere, i guess. There is a comment on their website saying they are a "new site on Container Housing Solutions". But, anyway this is a shipping container related website linked here and they are doing all kind of nice things, so give them a visit - it's free.

    ►KAT5 is a green technology informational resource website created by Bill Hinchliff that is dedicated to providing resources and educational information to those interested in developing building projects using shipping containers. The goal of KAT5 is to create awareness, and to showcase projects and ideas on the variety of uses that re-purposed, recycled industrial shipping containers can be used for as the basic building components for residential and commercial use. Remarkably versatile, durable and cost-effective, container structures can be quickly arranged into a variety of innovative configurations and architectural designs. If you are a Architect, Contractor, Builder who would like to arrange an interview, share media, and have your container building project shared through our website, please feel free to Contact KAT5 Container Housing Resources at (310) 678-4352. Much of the content contained in this website is for the purpose of both inspiring and educating the general public, as well as construction entities who are interested in learning, developing, and sharing information on best practices in the use of shipping containers for sustainable building projects. As a Regional Sales Manager in Los Angeles, Bill saw an ever increasing interest among both the general public and general contractors in the use of shipping containers to build sustainable housing and commercial building projects. With very little information available, Bill decided to find a medium in which he could connect with others who are just as passionate about sustainability and the use of shipping containers for building purposes. The KAT5 informational website and industry blog is an environmental innovation and a humanitarian vocation. The drive behind KAT5 for Bill is both personal and professional, and ultimately dedicated to influencing positive change, and the hope to be a part of sustainable projects that involve creativity and worldwide opportunities. His dream is to put a house over every child's head by providing information and creating awareness of green and affordable housing solutions worldwide.◄
  25. Container Ship Bad Hair Day COUNTRYMAN & MCDANIEL   This is a law firm specializing in services to the transportation industry. I include it here because they feature pictures and information about a side of shipping containers most places do not talk about and that is container loss and damage. They have a fair amount of interesting pictures showing container and ship accidents at sea and near or at ports. They mention also that there are at least 10,000 containers lost at sea every year. Contents can range from Dell computers to Barbie Dolls. Plus any other goods imaginable. Be sure and look at their "Daily Vessel Casualty, Piracy & News Report". It tells you a lot of bad things are happening all the time like accidents, bad storms at sea, etc.

    ►The historic dangers of carriage by sea continue to be quite real. Shippers must be encouraged to purchase high quality marine cargo insurance from their freight forwarder or customs broker. It's dangerous out there. Buy the cargo insurance, before the loss! Many container vessel incidents go unreported until some complaint by cargo interests. Please report events and send photos to us in confidence. Our reporters remain anonymous upon request.◄
