Container (ISBU) home construction has made incredible advances over the past few years. Today nearly everyone has seen a news segment about container home, or visited an internet site that featured a story or a few renderings of futuristic container concepts.
With the way today’s economy is, when more and more people are serious about saving on construction costs, reducing maintenance, and keeping more equity in their pocket it’s not really surprising that there is so much interest in container home construction.
When you can build a sleek modern house with the classic looks of the case study homes of the mid 20th century for a fraction of the cost of traditional construction, that gets peoples attention pretty quickly.
But even with all the interest it’s awfully hard to get concrete information on actually building a container home. And, sadly, you can’t just drive down and take a look at the container homes models at the local sub-division.
When you consider all the advantages of an ISBU home it makes good sense to explore the potential of an ISBU design.
they are easily transportable, fire proof, hurricane proof, extremely secure, fast construction, meet US building codes (check your local codes), easily customized, low maintenance, lower initial cost, increased equity, and termite proof.
Due to the ISBU’s modular design & ease of assembly, ISBU construction is often the most viable and cost effective approach for the owner/builder.
Shipping containers are strong, they exceed all US building codes for strength and safety.

Unfortunately, much of what you read about ISBU projects on the Internet is just the same simplistic info recycled over and over again. Not much help if you actually want to build an ISBU home.
