This "book" was a joke. I thought I was buying a book, but it is a pamphlet. The information was nothing more than what can be found with a quick search online or simply answered with common sense. How to learn about building a house? Do research online, read magazines, talk to people who have already built a home. THAT was the kind of useless advice in the "book". It was a waste of money, and the only reason I didn't send it back was because it made my husband laugh so much. He's convinced someone wrote a computer code to write this pamphlet. The cover image is badly photoshopped and fits perfectly with the entire charade of the publication. A fast one was definitely pulled here.
It's pretty amazing to come across a comprehensive guide about shipping container homes.This book is packed with advise, such as it is inexpensive, versatile, easy to build, durable, with abundant supply and most of all its environmental friendly. It involves everything that you need most from the start, on making designs all the way through getting final permits and certificate of occupancy. Great idea with the most thorough and detailed guide you'll find. I came to know a lot more from this guide and after reading it now I am planning to have my own shipping container house. I must recommend this guide to all.
SHAME ON ! THIS "BOOK" IS A SCAM! It's nothing more than a poorly researched pamphlet. The cover misrepresents the contents. There are no diagrams, plans, etc. should remove this IMMEDIATELY.
We got the idea to use a shipping container as a cabin/camp in the woods as an inexpensive weekend retreat after seeing one on some Extreme Home show on HGTV or Travel Channel. I never realized there were so many options and ways to customize it though. I assumed these were for the really modern, forward thinking artsy type of person. This book really gives all the information you need to think about before buying your shipping container(s). It starts with planning how many you need and they would be set up and connect to each other, to finding them to purchase, how to transport them, where you can put them, and how to design them. This book is really a one stop shop for your planning needs if you think a shipping container might be your next home.
There are so many things that this book teaches that I don't know which to hit first. The biggest issue is just understanding how wonderful this whole idea really is. You can have a beautiful home in no time at all. The structure of your house is already there with these containers. You don't have to build much in order to get your house looking fantastic. You will use little electricity and also won't be sitting on a 20 year mortgage hanging over your head. That's why this entire idea will save you money that you can use on things you really value with your life. This is perfect for almost anyone!
That guide will definitely encourage someone to test creating your personal transport jar property. Mcdougal supplies diverse procedures, models, along with specialists to do business with within developing freight jar property. This is the really extensive guidebook, easy such as the planning, getting will allow, alterations, along with pattern ideas.The particular written content along with understanding are regarding beneficial common. Every thing you have to know regarding creating jar property can be almost all in this phenomenal guide. This is the need to have e-book.
It is really so cool to come on this idea of making a shipping container transform into a home. I saw some shipping containers as a home before and I thought it is crazy idea and when I saw this guide I became interested and realized it was a great idea. And this guide makes it more awesome of giving great idea on how o plan and build a shipping container home. I became more interested and planning to build my own container home through the help of this guide’s great idea instead of building a traditional home. Having a shipping container home is more artistic and so cool.
A perfect book to get your creative juices flowing. As popular as 'tiny homes" this one fits right in. Good basic but detailed emphasis on getting the container and site location and establishing a realistic budget. Don't kid yourself, this isn't something to done in a weekend. Use professional, licensed contractors to assist in the process. The author also details popular accessories like pools or solar panels to add to the aesthetic and overall appeal of the structures.Good read
