The Gist on How to Build a Shipping Container Cabin
Building houses does not necessarily have to rely solely on mortar, brick, and timbers to go on, for a more daredevil, creative mind, even a shipping container can become a decent cabin. However, while it may seem like a unique idea to go, one does have to proceed with caution in building one. This is because shipping container was not meant into a construction material in the first place, so the chance that you will get an adequate living place that meets the safety code and regulation is pretty much dubious. It may even be a harmful piece of construction, so as the author, I can’t emphasize this enough; if you are still willing to build cabin using this unlikely material, then always proceed with caution.
Now, this article will not cover the in-depth step to step on how to build shipping container cabin, but it will only cover the gist of it. As it goes without saying that two hundreds words are not enough to convey the in-depth guide on safety construction and such. But there are plenty of other article that capable of explaining it better provided on the net, so you may want to try those who cover larger scoop on this matter.
Anyway, getting into the main issue, the first thing you need to do in building your very own shipping container cabin is by first, designing your cabin, or you can also find shipping container floor plans around the net. After you have your shipping container floor plans in hand, you must consult with an engineer regarding the construction and safety measures. Then purchase a container, build a foundation and begin your construction from the base.
