Containerships construction : the lasted generation of container vessels is a concentrate of technology and innovation. Building a container-ship : who are the experts ?17 Jun, 2013 by CMA CGMContainer ship, Economy, Shipping0 CommentContainerships are a concentration of technology and can vary in size right up to the vast dimensions of the CMA CGM JULES VERNE. The only Western countries in this market are the US, Germany, Romania, Brazil and the Netherlands. But for the construction of a giant like the CMA CGM JULES VERNE, the Asian countries are the only ones on the market. In South Korea, there are three leading containership yards: Daewoo (DSME) and Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), which are almost on a par in terms of market share, and Samsung.
In Europe, several shipyards have the capability to build small-size container vessels, and are the experts for specialised containerships, like Reefer vessels, Conro, vessels for carrying non-standard containers, etc. We receive lots of emails from people asking us- how do I go about building my own shipping container home? Matt Mooney, a principal at Corgan based in Texas, decided for his next home he wanted to use shipping containers. It has three bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and an outdoor swimming pool to name but a few of the features! Brenda Kelly from iqcontainerhomes has been dreaming of living in a shipping container home since she was 13, and she has been modelling and creating designs for shipping container homes for as long as she can remember! Her new home was made from a single 20 foot shipping container and due to its size it doesn’t require any building permission or council consent. If I was building a larger home that requires council consent and I wish I knew more about the application process for a building permit! I wish I knew how to insulate the shipping container, we ended up soldering elements on the walls and then sprayed them with a foam anti-fire insulation. Also I wanted to know how to keep the sun off the roof; in the end we did this by double ventilating the roof. Larry Wade from seacontainercabin, built his shipping container home back in 2010 and in total the home cost around $35,000 USD to build. Everything about building out a container was new to me and there wasn’t any useful info that I could find, so for me I really can’t think of anything that stands out from the rest. The good thing was that most of the really dinted places would end up being cut out of the containers anyway. The two larger containers are propped up using a 20 foot container which is used for storage. We decided to speak with Raquel Izurzu, an architect from James & Mau, and ask her what they wished they had known before designing the Manifesto House.
We wish we’d known in cold countries above all, you need to ensure you have proper insulation to protect against condensation.
With Manifesto House in Chile we had good results – The climate is not really cold or hot there.
We did not expect so much wind in the site and are now having to screen off the wind with vegetation as the container makes a bit of noise when there are large gusts of wind.
The containers were pre-fabricated off-site then delivered to California before they were re-assembled.
The one thing we would have done differently would have been to find one contractor to help the whole process versus having one for getting and modifying the containers, and another to finish out the interior. Don’t unnecessarily cut the boxes. Also make sure your contractor understands modular or container finishing.
You might have seen in the news recently this shipping container home which was built for Seth Rodewald-Bates?
Seth and a team of friends and family spent two years building the home, working in the evenings and weekends.
The completed container home contains one bedroom, a bathroom, kitchen, office and living area.
The main thing would be that in this example there wasn’t any significant cost savings. Casa Incubo is another great example of a shipping container home which was built in Costa Rica. The home was built using eight 40 foot high cube containers and using containers helped reduce the construction time by around 20%.
Since this house is in Costa Rica with tropical weather, I wish I had been extra careful to paint it with the strongest paint to protect against the rain. Roger Black is the proud owner of the Cinco Camp which is over 200 miles from the nearest airport and based off an unpaved road unreachable to all without a 4×4 drive car.
Mark Wellen, from Rhotenberry Wellen Architects, designed the retreat and said the entire thing cost around $200,000 USD and it would have been around $100,000 if the camp was built in a more accessible area! This shipping container home is one of the first in China and was built by Mads Moller from Aarcgency.
The external walls of the containers are lined in bamboo which protects the containers from the natural elements and also provides the containers with insulation.
The containers are bolted down into the existing rock and this provides the owners with a gorgeous view overlooking Nederland. These container projects have been for clients who really like containers or have some tangible need that containers provide such as durability.   Certainly the projects that we have been involved in have always been unique.
The home was built using three 40 foot and one 20 foot container and even has enough room for Marek’s office when he works from home! To be honest I don’t really have one thing I wish I knew about shipping containers before I started. Whilst this isn’t exactly a single home, the construction process is similar and there are still many lessons which we can learn from Broadmeadow! Broadmeadow is designed and owned by Christian Salvati from Marengo Structures. This megastructure was built with 27 containers, is Four stories high, and contains 6 apartments. Building with shipping containers can be challenging and the aggravation is still the same as traditional construction, however the costs are reduced. The home was made using a 20 foot shipping container and contains a full kitchen, bathroom, bedroom! That’s a tough question, Tom, one that I don’t have an answer for.   I began modifying shipping containers 10+ years ago. Like a couple of other homes within this blog post, the C192 Nomad is a prototype. The Nomad is made by Cargotecture and sleeps comfortably a family of four. Joel Egan, Cargotecture’s owner, says the Nomad is designed as a self-contained backyard cottage or remote retreat. It’s not a good idea to go it alone if you have a custom home you are interested in, it’s best approached with professional drawing services and competent structural engineering.


Peter Gill Case, owner of Truth Box, said the windows have been strategically placed to provide maximum daylight whilst using the smallest windows possible.
Finding a balance between good building design and total construction expense is the key to utilizing containers in buildings. The building was built using second hand shipping containers meaning they could keep the cost of construction down!
There are countless things that I wish we had known prior to doing our project, but I would say the ONE thing that would have made a big difference would have been to have all of the plumbing chases cut out of the container floors and ceilings to easily run pipe once they were stacked. Also, the containers sit very tight next to each other and in the design phase we added an additional inch to the width of the foundation just in case they didn’t butt up tight, and in hindsight we should have designed it an inch less for a better drip edge connection.
The home spans some 1500 square foot and contains two bedrooms, an office, playroom, kitchen and laundry room. It is definitely worth it to work with someone who has expertise with container structures. Hartman wanted a holiday home on the beach which he could turn up to on Friday night and enjoy it over the weekend! The walls of the container are rough and need framing so that your internal walls are flat and smooth.
Normally reefer containers are much more expensive than regular containers which are then insulated. Hi Tom,You have represented people from different areas and they seems happy with shipping containers.
This is good info and provides great links to design firms but I don’t see anything on how to finance a container build and info is limited online! We are currently researching financing options and will write a blog post as soon as we have enough helpful information. Yes it’s definitely possible, are you thinking about using a 20 foot shipping container? I have a dog business and purchased two 40′ containers to use for indoor dog play area. Yes definitely- if you don’t do anything else, make sure you properly insulate the containers! I haven’t seen any dog play areas made from shipping containers so this should be really interesting. I am planning a 20×10 container farm house and your thread really has extensive information and appreciate your effort. I think you would definitely need to invest in insulating the container, but this could be either internally or externally… Take a look at our article on insulation and let me know if you still have anymore questions.
I’d like to put a container home on my west va property as a weekend hunting lodge, as it would be ideal in terms of security when I lock it up. We are currently trying to compile a list of contractors to add to our resources section however at the moment this isn’t complete. The best thing I suggest you do is go through this blog post and within here we mention several major contractors. We are planning a 3200sq ft house in Sheffield, England, as far as I know the first of its kind in this country. I am convinced my dream home will be made of shipping containers but can anyone comment on differences in financing the construction SCH? I was ready with cash to build a two container home similar to the Savannah project in rural Florida.The county was OK with my idea. Last year, we announced French architect Jean Nouvel's master plan for the renovation of the Seguin Island in western Paris.
The renewal of Christchurch, New Zealand after a devastating earthquake just took a huge leap with the opening of a pedestrian shopping mall made from shipping containers.
Located in rolling hills of Durbanville wine valley on the outskirts of Cape Town, Vissershok Primary School is a rural school dedicated to the children of farm workers and underprivileged communities living in Du Noon – a poverty-stricken township several kilometers away.
Boxman Studios recently installed the interior centerpiece for a new 165,000+ SF building in downtown Raleigh. Designed by Alliance Architecture of Durham, the Citrix building echoes the industrial roots of the location with the modernity of a LEED Gold structure. Boxman Studios took 16 containers and modified them extensively in order to stack in pairs four tall. Playing on the industrial theme, the building’s original gantry crane will be positioned above the containers, connected by cables and appearing to be moving the containers into place.

The biggest shipyards in the world are Hyundai, Samsung and DSME, all of which are in South Korea. The largest on order to be built in Europe are 9,000 TEU-capacity ships in a Korean shipyard in Romania. It is based in the Algarve region of Portugal and uses only one 40 foot shipping container which provides over 300 square foot of living space. Larry used two 40 foot shipping containers to make his new home and it features solar panels on the roof which are used to provide electric and heat water. I can say that the one thing that I wished I had not done was buy my containers without seeing them- I took the company’s word that they would be in good shape.
And I wished I had known that it doesn’t cost that much more for a One-Trip container and they are like brand new.
Two 40 foot containers are spread 4 foot apart to create around 800 square foot of open plan living!
We only needed to put some pallets on the external walls to control the sun and some insulation.


The home cost a staggering $40,000 USD to build and provides over 600 square foot of living space. The very top floor has nine skylights fitted into the roof which provides huge amounts of natural light. As shown in the picture below, the home has been built around the existing cedar tree and it was designed by architect Maria Jose Trejos.
I wish I had known there were containers available for very little more money that were virtually new… that are in almost pristine condition.
You can see in the photo that the home has a huge sloped roof which is topped with a living-garden.
The home was designed by Brad Tomecek, from Tomecek Studio, as an experiment to try and reduce the size of the average American home and to also be as environmentally conscious and friendly as possible.
I guess the more you know and learn about shipping container homes before you start making decisions will help you to fail less.
I did a lot of research up front so it wasn’t as though I jumped in and discovered something that complicated the build. In addition the studios are fitted with energy recovery ventilators which helps to conserve energy and supply the block with fresh air.
There is also a 40 foot container located at the rear of the home which contains the guest-house!
They are a few thousand $$$ more but you have smooth interior and exterior walls and insulated sides, roof, and floor!!! It actually saves a money in the long run as its already insulated and you can see your initial interior dimensions. Can anyone point me in the direction of financiers in the USA who are willing to provide new construction loans for container builds? I am so ready to build my container home here in Arizona but am having trouble finding financing.
Looking for a site at the moment, thanks for the info, would like to hear more from these developers as they seem very coy on the pitfalls! The massive plan includes a mix of culture, commerce, and green spaces with music halls, artist studios, museums, and even hotels and cinemas. The brightly colored stacked boxes hold 27 stores as part of the City Mall Re:START project.
Sponsored by three South African companies – Woolworths, Safmarine and AfriSam – the Vissershok Container Classroom is a 12 meter recycled container that was converted into an independent classroom for 25 Grade R (age 5-6) students. When complete in 1Q2014 the Citrix building at Hargett and West Streets will house the divisional headquarters of Citrix’s ShareFile business and about 500 employees. The focal point of the building’s interior is a 4-story atrium with stacks of intermodal shipping containers modified and erected by Boxman Studios to create eight large, high-tech conference rooms in two towers separated by an elevator.
In reality the structural engineering dynamic of the offset fashion of the container stack require that cantilevered containers be supported by tension rods to the building superstructure above.
Such temporary hipstervilles, which combine trendy shops with food, music and urban gardening, are popping up all over the world -- but also priming the areas for development and gentrification.

Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Just in case this isn’t enough, the home also features a 1300 square foot exterior decking and a pool! It is built using a single shipping container and has various pull-out and fold-down sections to enhance the homes overall size. However, I think understanding how the structural integrity of them works is very important- i.e.
Why not tell us “the one thing you wish you’d known before you began building your shipping container home?” in the comments below! I have no done projects around here to visit and see how it feels in a container home and from my readings insulating in a later stage start living is a big pain as you need to redo the electrical and sanitary jobs…please advise. Phase one of this sensational overhaul was recently completed, and a giant greenhouse and restaurant called Les Grandes Tables has sprouted within a set of recycled shipping containers - read on to learn more!
Thousands of visitors flocked to the temporary mall’s opening to enjoy the cafe, the large pedestrian area and two horse-shoe shaped pavilions. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
The mall offers a bit of normalcy to the residents, and some serious contemporary eco-style.

The overhead view goes on the 3-inch plane of the block, with the bow (the front end of the ship) just touching one end of the block and the stern (the ship's rear) ending exactly at the end of the block.
Finish this step by drawing the bow's on view of the ship (the view looking at her from the front) on the 1x3 front end and the stern on view (looking at her from in back) on the other end.
Be careful when cutting under the stern -- depending upon the ship, the stern can extend a long way out over the ship's waterline. Place glue on either side of the three inch piece and stack the three pieces together so that the longer length is in the centre.
Glue this assembly to the centre of the hull at the location of the ship's superstructure -- use your references to determine the exact location.
This assembly should be placed athwartships (side to side rather than lengthwise with the hull). While the hull and superstructure are often the same colour, the hull may feature a stripe of a different colour in any of several locations. Build two complete layers of containers, so that the upper section of the superstructure rises clearly above them. Although lettering would be impossible to replicate in this scale and even harder to read, you can simulate lettering by painting thin lines in the appropriate colour on the containers.
