Vertical Shipping Container Home?

vertical shipping container Its an idea I have been thinking about for sometime, I find people’s first complaint about shipping container homes as a “concept” is that they are simply too small to be viable. I totally disagree as it all depends on peoples lifestyles but also its very likely they have lived in a smaller space themselves at some point already.

But what if you took the shipping container for an urban situation where land is often at a premium, or more importantly bits of land people can’t imagine being useful due to the size available then take a shipping container and go vertical instead of horizontal. This is still an idea at the moment but thought maybe some of the whizzes out there with a bit of time and 3D imagery could come up with some interesting designs.

I’m sure it can be viable especially in locations that do have a high cost of land and positioning in even what once was a flower bed would be very possible.

The main issue I can see though is the stair access between floors, but like everything else this can be overcome with a good idea pool of people.

40ft container divided into 4 rooms of  10ft high each or at 9ft you could add a 5th floor with 4ft height for storage space. Each room would be 7’8" x 7’10" not huge but a workable space.

Interested in any ideas on the project.
