Shipping container homes in the Philippines projects

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.

Shipping Container Swimming Pool

We have two methods of constructing a shipping container here. The photo above is using containers once used for rubbish collection. They lined with sand and a pool liner inserted over the top. Can’t get much simpler than that but the results for the neighbourhood are obvious.

The pool below utilizes a different method that I can only assume is a poly resin type coating coating the inside of the pool. It may outlast the pool above but not sure of the cost implications but either way both pools look great and would no doubt be a welcome addition to many a garden!
