Shipping container home – Ktainer

Shipping container home - Ktainer

I came across this website today and the most interesting thing about it is the way they have shown their ideas from the initial stage to the construction they have decided on for the shipping container home. The advantages of that in the shipping container home concept is that if your new to it you can see people’s ideas that you may expand on and use for your own builds. The advantage of that also means that you can learn by other peoples mistakes as well as see what works and what doesn’t something that can save a lot of money. Anyway just wanted to share Ktainer with you and there are some interesting things to see on their site. I particularly like this design for a stairwell between floors :-

Which also goes to show the amount of time and effort that has gone into the building of the container home but also the amount of work that has gone into their site so please take a look well worth it.

Infill Container Home Designed by Leger Wanaselja – San Francisco bay, U.S.A.

This project was based on three shipping containers from which home designer Leger Wanaselja transformed into a luxury modular home. Its located on eastern hills above San Francisco Bay. The advantage of using shipping containers in this design is that it offers a structured uniform look that only adds to the buildings character as well as the containers themselves are ideal for this purpose due to the design and nature of them because they exceed many of the building standards that would be required for construction at the same time cheap to work with and buy.

How the containers are used is 2 40ft containers are stacked while on the other side another 40ft was cut and stacked leaving the central area as the sitting room and stairwell area which was opened up by a high glass wall from floor to ceiling.
