This is absolutely amazing! You guys have done a fantastic job.
This is wonderful. What was the over all cost of everything?
I can build these as well and will be moving back to AZ. and if you live in AZ. or want one built in AZ. contact me. Personally I am going to build one 3 wide. possibly with one on top. :-)
Very cool re-use of shipping containers! I'm always interested in alternative housing methods and this one ranks way up there.
Hey John. Please email me your contact info. I live in AZ and might be interested in your help at some point. I'm at oneteamATgmail.com.
I have heard about issues with burying containers, so I would be concerned about where this home is partially buried since shipping containers are designed for support on certain points for stacking and not the sides or the top. Otherwise it looks cool.
I have a few questions in regards to this build who can I contact with them?
OMG, this is too cool!!! I would be interested in doing a Google Hangout with you and interviewing you on this. Can I get your contact info?
This was fantastic...The pictures were great...What a wonderful job...I loved how you left the pantry "uninsulated"...(free refrigeration).Outstanding !

Hey John, My husband and I have property in Apache Co. Az. and several years ago we were looking into using the containers to build with. We got so much flack from the County Building that we never did anything, have you run into this and how are you getting around this?
Do you have a website or some place where you have posted pictures of your work?
Yes, I would also like to know how much this cost. Also, how long did it take? Where did you build? Is insulation a consideration? What precautions did you take for rain/snow/moisture damage?
This is very good. I like the use of the trailers. I like when we recycle things that are available to us. You did very good.
John I am looking at moving out to Northeastern AZ, and building a 2 level 6 to 8 Container Home
He did not bury those Containers. Also as long as you reinforce the Side walls there is no problems banking soil against the sides.
I love this house. You wouldn''t know of anyone who could build me one around Gatlinburg, Tennessee would you?
Did not see the side reinforcement so I was just a little concerned.I have been considering this type of project myself so I have been researching this quite a bit. This article inspired me to keep moving on it.
GROOVY! tip top!
Here is my blog for anyone interested in the process. http://seacontainercabin.blogspot.com/
See Montainer.com. They also have a fb page.
Total cost was $35,000, but that does included everything except the land it sits on. All the solar additions, the well, electric, all furnishings, everything, even the carport.
There are several ways the side is supported, 2x4's every 16" along the walls, then two dividing walls which also lend support..
Nice, but I'd have to have one two or three times larger. I'd love to do this with several more containers.
Thomas, I'd like to see that. Just what I was thinking. Please document your work and take lots of photos with captions.
