  1. Container House Picture RECYCLE TECH INC   Very nice website here. The picture on the right is perhaps a picture of the smallest shipping container home they build. At the date of this entry the "Project" link portion of their website is not working, so i cannot view their different projects. But, nice website anyway.

    ►RCYT develops eco-friendly homes for consumers at all levels of life and socio-economic status. Our container homes are highly popular because of price point and the expedited building process; these container dwellings can be built more quickly and affordably than those using traditional concrete block. For example, our smallest model can be completed in just two months, compared to the 8-12 months required to build a traditional home of similar size. Our homes are safe, affordable, transportable, and completely in line with the evolving "green" movement. We strive to be forward thinking in considering the impact these dwellings can make in developing nations. For this reason, the units are designed to be easily disassembled and transported anywhere in the world. We seek to be the pioneer for green building, by developing premium, affordable container homes and meeting all LEED specifications for certification. Our initial plan is to reach out to all municipalities in the South Florida area with the message to "Go Green" using our designs and products. We then plan a large-scale outreach to cities, states, and other countries, to spread the message that eco-friendly living is possible and affordable. We feature a unique product and price structure that allows us to target a very wide market. This market includes homeless and low-income housing programs, and ranges to municipalities, and even private homeowners of all income levels who have an interest in green and eco-friendly living. The real estate industry continues to be sluggish, particularly in the South Florida area. At the same time, the move for sustainable, reusable products has never been stronger. These two factors combine to make a perfect moment for our products to enter the market. We are poised to take advantage of many forthcoming changes in the way buildings are built, particularly in South Florida. These changes include an anticipated new building code called "Miami 21", as well as evolving trends in custom design, energy efficiency, and eco-friendly architecture. Those who purchase our eco-friendly structures will be able to qualify for government funding, tax breaks, property exceptions, utility/electric reimbursement programs, and the satisfaction of contributing to the growing movement for sustainable and "greener" living.◄

  8. US Government Shipping Container GOVERNMENT LIQUIDATION   I used this service in the past to buy government surplus items and tried to sell them on eBay. It was kind of fun for awhile but it got too complicated for me plus the "Big Money" discovered the site and started bidding everything up to the moon. There's a lot of junky stuff; so you really have to do a pre-bid inspection to cover yourself. I notice they now have a "scrap metal" section and that's because much of what they sell has only scrap value. If you decide to try and buy a used shipping container on this site - i would recommend you not buy "sight unseen". A lot of the things for sale are junk. But you can get some good items also. There is always someone who knows how to work the system very well which i don't, but anyway, have fun with those 3000 used bed pans you got for 20 bucks!

    » Government Liquidation is an online marketplace for the sale of US Government surplus and scrap material to the public.

  9. Clemson Seed Project CLEMSON UNIVERSITY SEED   These people are clever designers. They do research on social and ecological approaches to advanced fabrication technologies and testing methods for modifying the containers in order to rapidly and flexibly convert them into dwellings suitable for human inhabitation.

    » SEED is an emergent housing investment that appreciates locally over time! Utilizing an existing surplus of shipping containers and working with industry partners including Container-it, Intermodal Steel Building Units Association, Sargent Metals, and Tri-County Technical, Clemson University designers from the Department of Architecture and the Department of Landscape Architecture are researching and developing an affordable housing solution for the Caribbean Region. ADULT DIAPERS Caribbean nations inherently import more goods than they export generating a steady surplus of shipping containers. Shipping containers are designed to carry massive amounts of cargo and withstand extreme weather conditions making them a logical housing component. Completely constructed of steel and reinforced with eight corner post moment connections and corrugated steel walls a 40ft shipping container can carry 67,200 pounds and resist overturn when exposed to winds up to 140 mph. Without modification a 40ft shipping container has 304 square feet of floor space and eliminates problems associated with insects, fire, and hurricanes. With modification a 40ft shipping container can be a safe, comfortable, and environmentally friendly home for numerous local inhabitants who would otherwise have less. Designing a process and not an outcome the team has decidedly chosen the seed and its symbiotic-propagation as an analog. Thinking time based and considering logistics the beginning design has emerged as a system of event based solutions capable of providing immediate housing after hurricanes or natural disasters. local intervention and materials eventually developing into permanent and investment with a local identity. Utilizing local skills, labor, and materials the final design is dynamic taking on a symbiotic relationship with the local cultures. Eventually the ubiquitous container is embedded and made permanent providing an investment that can appreciate with time. «
  10. Haiti School GLOBAL CONTAINER PARTNERSHIPS   This organization does projects in at least three countries: Liberia, Haiti & Jamaica. Picture on the right is a school, fashioned from two 40 foot or longer shipping containers by Richard Martin's organization in 2005, now stands in the Haitian town of Gonaives.

    » To provide the organization and process to respond properly to situations where there are clearly established needs for low-cost, buildings. To instruct and empower the people to undertake the conversion of international shipping containers to meet those needs, and in so doing, develop their own capacities to help themselves in times of emergency and improve their economic condition.

    GLOBAL CONTAINER PARTNERSHIPS is an organization that has perfected a method and system to economically convert retired international shipping containers into sustainable housing and community buildings such as medical facilities, schools and neighborhood centers. The proven system is based on matching a team of our experts with local citizens to create needed structures, to teach skills to local team members and to aid local economic development. This training and knowledge will better prepare the residents to help the advancement of their own communities while raising their own personal standard of living. The containers, made of steel or aluminum and designed to support extreme loads, are the building blocks of the construction. They may be assembled in a variety of configurations meeting specific requirement of site or community. They allow for the use of unskilled labor in constructing the buildings. They can provide secure space, support second floors and roofs, bridge uneven grades and generally establish the structural foundations for a successful building at costs well below conventional construction. In addition to the conversion, installation and transformation of containers into sustainable buildings; the GLOBAL CONTAINER PARTNERSHIPS team encourages and helps train community residents to take an active role in improving their living conditions, education and neighborhoods. «

  13. Offset Container Stack BOELWERF   I think this container design business does just that: Design and supervise the set-up of container building projects. They don't seem to sell containers - just design and plan and supervise the construction of a building project using shipping containers.

    » Did you know we could build a Chinese wall out of unused shipping containers that would go around the equator? It's neither efficient nor effective to store them or melt them down. So why not start using them for something else . . .

    At Boelwerf we strive to develop structures that are appropriate for the era we live in. We challenge traditional notions of what a building looks like, how it is built, what it is made of and how it performs. Our designs incorporate recyclable and re-purposed industrial materials. Our structures are not high-tech; we like to think of them as appropriate-tech: Always designed with an understanding of the materials and technologies that surround us and with a respect for the resources our planet faces. The global transportation industry responded rapidly to this new invention of the Shipping Container and the rest of the world also began to find more uses for this 'super box', not just for shipping. The new shipping container was so well designed that it could hold tons of cargo inside, but also can easily withstand the weight of 9 or 10 more fully loaded containers on the top of it. ISO shipping containers are the strongest mobile or stationary modular structure in the world. Imagine what people really saw when they looked at a shipping container . . . They began to see, not only a shipping box, but a steel box, cube, building, that was the strongest in the world . . . Moveable, stackable, and easily modifiable. Just like building blocks, the container could be moved, connected and quickly designed to become anything. The options for the use of this new shipping container became endless . . .◄
  14. Small is Smart House SMALL IS SMART HOUSE   I can sense these peoples enthusiasm for their work with ISBU housing. They live in Australia and have at least one winner of a design. More to come. Stay tuned.

    » Welcome to our architectural temporary website. It's a template site we picked up from Microsoft Office Live while we are building our new exciting architect's website specializing in shipping container home design. In the meantime, we will keep adding to this site, so please be patient and visit us again! At Architects Fulton + Salomon we think outside the square... but inside the box! And the box is a 40 foot shipping container! At DesignEX 2009, that closed on May 2, 2009, Hardware Store we premiered and released the amazing SMALLisSMART HOUSE! The response was amazing! So much enthusiastic comment from our professional peers about this luxury 1 bedroom house in a single 40 foot shipping container! We designed and built the container home ourselves to show the world that living in a modified shipping container is far from slum living. It has worked! We have created many container based designs for many uses. Think of a use and we can provide you with a design. We have had many enquiries for container based houses providing more bedrooms than the one bedroom SMALLisSMART HOUSE. Over time, if you keep visiting this website, you will find more designs for varying size houses starting with two bedrooms using 2X 40 foot containers. We have recently gained access to up to 54 foot containers which allows us to create a two bedroom house in a 54 foot container for little more money than the 40 foot model! As they get larger, we will extend the designs by spreading 2X 40 foot containers apart and bridging between them with conventional construction. It is a very logical progression. We call this style of house the DOGTROT HOUSE. (The Dogtrot house was described by Mark Twain in Huckleberry Finn: "It was a double house, and a big open place 'betwixt' them was roofed and floored".) We don't only work with single shipping container houses. We have designed a 650 sq.m. residence and 6 unit bed & breakfast facility to be built at Orlando, Florida using 29 shipping containers. «

    » An account of my adventure to live in a shipping container home on a bluff overlooking the james river. «

    » Back in the planning days of this project, whenever I would politely ask Jason if there was going to be a coat closet by the door or a place big enough in the laundry room where I could put my sewing machine and ironing board, his response was, "This is going to be a different way of living. «

  17. Shipping Container Home SHIPPING CONTAINER HOME   This project is actually located in Australia. It consists of pictures and descriptive text.

    "Remote accommodation is always a challenge in difficult terrain. What follows is an example of using two conventional shipping containers to create 90 square meters of living space in dense rain forest adjoining World Heritage Rain forest. The facility, on a nature refuge is used for rain forest research. The terrain is extremely difficult and accessed via a narrow track made by woodcutters in 1928. The techniques are simple and require only very basic skills. They produce a dry, durable ,vermin proof, comfortable, removable facility with a low ecological impact. On Food Stamps? We cleared the 1928 timber access track by hand using axes and dragging the material, various distances into the surrounding bush. All mature trees were avoided, all stumps cut horizontal at ground level to prevent tire spearing. Standard 6m (20ft) containers were taken down this trackone at a time, on the back of a small tilt truck, the kind used to carry a single car when they have broken down. These trucks are widely available and cheap to hire. At less than two tonnes the container could be maneuvered down a narrow track between large trees and slid off into a confined area under control, with ease. In extreme terrain the smaller containers could even be dragged shorter distances behind a backhoe. Some internet companies sell wheels you can attach to move by hand or behind a 4WD. In less severe terrain a 40' container might be better value, however the larger container at about 3.5 tonnes would require a much larger truck and a much better road. Unloading would also be a problem. We used two 6m (20ft) containers placed 3m (10ft) apart. The site, in Far North Queensland, is situated in dense tropical rain forest. The area has slippery red lateritic clays and gets about 6m of rain per year. The area has many snakes and troublesome white tail rats. It was decided to raise the containers onto 1.5m concrete stumps to keep them out of the wet, to keep them out of the splash and to keep rats and snakes out. We did not try to level the ground as it would break the protective root cover and result in erosion."

I suppose a person could use this frame as the basis for a small cabin which would be very strong.

    ►Dahlson Industries Ltd. is a Calgary based designer and manufacturer of "Custom Steel" projects since 1997. Originally specializing in propane installations, the company now designs & manufactures a variety of oilfield equipment including drilling rigs, underbalanced drilling systems, compression and rotating equipment modules, pressure piping systems, and various other oilfield equipment and buildings. Dahlson is now certified for a DNV / CSC and B.I.C Certified open frame container manufacturing. The frame is available in standard 20ft sea can dimensions in either 8ft-6in height or 9ft-6in height. With the current global economy, the ability to quickly ship equipment to where it is needed is critical. This frame design allows for Dahlson or the end user to package equipment into the frame and have it certified for use offshore and international shipping. The base structure is the starting point and non-structural components can be added as required. Some examples of use are compression and pumping equipment, drilling modules, and storage. Please contact Dahlson to discuss this product.◄

  26. Zigloo ZIGLOO   Residential design from British Columbia Canada. Very beautiful examples of what can be made with Shipping Containers. This is a high quality site with some great original material.

    ►Hi there. I am Keith Dewey - the man behind the Zigloo.ca concept. I moved to Victoria BC after graduating from OCAD 1994. I have been involved in designing over 100 projects... some of Victoria's most celebrated additions, renovations and new homes. Moving to Canada's west coast, from Toronto, inspired me to see everyday living in a whole new light... and this is what Zigloo.ca is all about. A new way to live. My wife, daughter and I make our home (and the Zigloo.ca design office) by the ocean surrounded by mountains on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. Enjoy surfing around the site, and let me know what you think.◄
  27. Container City CONTAINER CITY   Nicely done website featuring many projects completed using shipping containers as the basic framework from which to build, link together and finish many different kinds of residential and commercial dwellings. Very interesting and lots of great pictures of their completed projects. This project is located in London, United Kingdom.

    "Containers are an extremely flexible method of construction, being both modular in shape, extremely strong structurally and readily available. Container Cities offer an alternative solution to traditional space provision. They are ideal for office and workspace, live-work and key-worker housing. Container Cities do not even have to look like containers! It is a relatively simple matter to completely clad a building externally in a huge variety of materials. Finally the benefits of Container Cities can truly be seen in short and medium term land use projects. Short-life sites can have Container Cities that simply unbolt and can be relocated or stored when land is required for alternative uses. To date this alternative method of construction has successfully created youth centers, classrooms, office space, artists studios, live / work space, a nursery and retail space."
  28. Terry CONTAINERIST   This website or Blog has much interesting and useful information. It is the creation of one man with one purpose.

    ►My name is Terry Herb and I am a containerist. What is a containerist? It's a moniker I created for a person who lives inside a container home or at least has the desire to do so (such as myself). Why do I want to live in a container home? It seems to me that there is a statement to be made by living in one—similar to hybrid cars and wind farms. It's a cool thing which impacts the environment in a beneficial way. The port of Los Angeles pictured above is a merely minutes from me. Cigarettes My Man Yes, I am near a mind-blowing sea of shipping containers which seems to cover tens of square miles of precious port property—one of the busiest in the world! Although intriguing, this area is not where I wish to call home. I'm not a concrete jungle kinda person. It's an inspiration zone for me because I strive to leave it all behind for greener pastures. Living in a tiny apartment and being stuck in traffic isn't my cup of chai tea by far. I have lived in the desert community of Joshua Tree here in California for a number of years and I know positively that a home in the country is for me. I need my elbow room. I need a place to create the biggest art sculpture of my life—a container home. It will be liberating in so many aspects. My goal is to take an acre (or more) of generously gifted land in either Southern California away from the city or (ideally) beautiful Arizona and drop down some used shipping containers atop some freshly cured concrete footings, weld it all together and call it my home. Simple enough conceptually, but it has to be a coordinated effort between me and a lot of generous, earth-conscious, green-thinking organizations, businesses and people who wish to see an important project go from dream state to reality. Why important? Because it will set an example of what we can do with the surplus of containers across the world. There is a tasteful approach to utilizing a container which has already served its intended purpose. I am by no means an innovator when it comes to using containers as a place to call home, people are already doing it across the globe, some on a major scale; but this opportunity is for average people from all walks of life to take part in something interesting, challenging and meaningful. I will use my blog as a vehicle to bring the average person into a creative process which they may not normally have an opportunity to be a part of in their every day life; I foresee that many will want to get on board with my project as a way to make a statement of their own, be it big or small scale. There will be lots of pictures and videos to keep all those involved within the loop of the project's progress.◄

  30. Chassis King CHASSIS KING   The picture on the right is of a 20ft One Trip - Single Use Container. This might be a fairly good place to consider for buying your next shipping container.

    ►Storage Containers for Sale!
    20 foot and 40 foot ground storage containers are available for sale nationwide. We offer container delivery service to most areas via flatbed or tilt bed trailers. Special purpose containers and customized containers are also available.
    I include this following bit of information because it might be useful sometime.

    Shipping Container Conditions Available:
    One Trip or Single Use - These are new containers that have had one load shipped in them. By allowing a shipper to use the container for a single load, our cost to position a new container into North America is reduced significantly. These savings are reflected in the price to you.
    CW-Cargo Worthy - This quality of container can be used in containerized export shipments. Cargo worthy containers must meet standards of structural strength and be wind and water tight. Containers meeting IICL 5 standards generally are of a better quality than containers showing as just cargo worthy.
    WWT (Wind and Water Tight) - This conditional information indicates that the container is dry and suitable for storage.
    As-Is - This condition should alert the buyer that there may be damage to the container that could be expensive to repair.◄
