For finding container house designs and plans, visit online resources that either specialize in offering information for do-it-yourself home building projects or sell container home building kits such as Popular Mechanics, Container Home Plans and HomeDSGN.com. Container houses are made from recycled storage containers; for this reason, they can be less expensive to construct and more eco-friendly.
At the Popular Mechanics website, there are 45 different designs for container homes and offices as of November 2015. The website provides pictures of designed homes in different locations and designer names. Some container home designs include the Redondo Beach House, Ecopod and the Quik House. The website gives links and information for the designers of these homes. For example, Adam Kalkin designed the prefabricated kit for building the Quik House plans for a 2,000-square-feet house that features three bedrooms.
The Container Home Plans site at ContainerHomePlans.org is a useful resource for anyone interested in constructing a container home. This website sells plans and guides for making homes from shipping containers. Additionally, under the Resources section, there are pictures of different designs for container homes.
Additionally, the HomeDSGN.com website also provides pictures of 22 different homes and informative links on the designers or companies that designed the units from pre-fabricated modules. For example, Ecotech Design built a home in the Mojave Desert using six containers. There is a link at this website for this company that provides the different project types and services it offers for building container homes.
