I am always interested in new locations of where shipping container homes are being utilized and today I came across this one by Fred and Cynthia in Panama. Their blog is also interesting as it goes through the various transition processes from A to B and everything else in between. Another home builder happy to share their information on how they got the home of their dreams and built it themselves.
I recommend visiting their blog about building a container house in Panama as they have a lot of useful information to share as well as an interesting read.
The blog has been a little quiet lately but its not doing to a lack of things going on but the reverse. Several interested parties has stepped forward for various construction projects all of which I am now knocking up drawings and ideas for how far the projects will go we will have to wait and see currently its just in the early stages but can see it developing well if it gets taken seriously especially by local government as a housing solution. There are several reasons I am keen to do low cost housing including giving people dignity and pride in their home which should hopefully tie in with other projects to make a sustainable higher standard of living possible. On top of that shipping container class rooms are also on the cards as well as an interesting swimming pool idea so all in all its getting pretty busy. I will share some of the 3D images once I have finished the designs but I would request donations if you decide to use any of the sketches or drawings purely towards building the beach house container house here which will be fully online from start to finish to show you how to build it yourself. Currently we are looking at an initial budget of P100,000 for the unit and construction.
Just wanted to post an update on ongoing things as people may wonder where I disappeared to.
