1. Create a Realistic Design
The amount of money that you can invest in the project must be carefully considered during this step, along with your basic storage needs. Most shipping containers are 8’x40’ or 8’x20’, and you will need to be able to work with these dimensions. Of course, if you have enough space and money, you can design a house that uses multiple containers.
Google SketchUp and Microsoft Visio are a couple of programs that can help you make your own design. Alternatively, you can connect with a home builder to ensure that your design is actually realistic enough to bring to life.
