Case Study

I explored the idea of converting shipping containers into living spaces, a design solution that is quickly being adopted across the world.  I came across a blog post about a couple called Fred and Cynthia who were building their own home out of shipping containers.  Their project began in 2011 and is almost complete.  Throughout their blog they describe in detail the stages of construction, any problems encountered and the solutions they came up with.

I gathered valuable information about issues I may encounter concerning storage containers.  Issues regarding, insulation, window fittings, ventilation etc.
