Hey guys the wifey and I are debating on building a new home and we are intriqued with the shipping container homes. I have spent some time searching the internet to only come up with little information about these homes. So far I've found the containers to be a very cost effective alternative to standard building materials and are much stronger and durable. Basically the containers are almost boom proof and last forever. Like I said I've found very little information about these homes and I'm wondering if any of you know or have known anyone thats built or builds these homes? I would like to have a big hand in building our container home but would like to gather as much info as possible before deciding if its the way we want to go. I'm looking for ideas, dos and donts and just basic knowledge on these homes, Thanks for the help guys!
