Introduction to Container Homes & Buildings

Heather Levin over at The Greenest Dollar shared a copy of a new ebook with me that she and Alex Klein recently finished called, Introduction to Container Homes & Buildings. It’s not a complete how-to book (that’s their next book) but it is an excellent overview of building homes from ISBU containers, and Alex is a true expert on the topic. Here are some of the things you’ll learn in this ebook:

  • Why ISBUs are one of the most frugal ways to build a home
  • What’s possible with ISBU construction
  • The benefits of living in an ISBU home (including how much you can save living in these structures)
  • How to make your ISBU home look just like any other home
  • Roofing options that will save you literally thousands of dollars on your build
  • 20 house plans that illustrate what you can do with ISBU containers (plus the build budget for each design)
  • Options for insulating your ISBU
  • What you’ll face when you go get financing for your ISBU build
  • The benefits of using 20′ containers instead of 40′ containers

The ebook is just under 100 pages and costs $9.95. Visit Alex’s blog or  The Greenest Dollar to learn more about Introduction to Container Homes & Buildings. Below are three of the 2o floor plans you’ll find in the ebook.
