It’s been nearly two years since we have published a book here at Container Home Plans.
The reasons for this are numerous, but mainly it’s because we have been focusing heavily on our two key goals:
- Help improve the awareness of shipping container homes.
- Be the #1 resource for all things shipping container homes- whether that is construction, planning or simply advice on living in one.
I’m proud to say that we’ve been delivering on these goals and continue to help thousands of shipping container home enthusiasts each year.
However, during this period I’ve been overwhelmed by the number of people who have been asking us to develop more shipping container home floor plans.
I heard you loud and clear, you loved the guide (How to Build a Shipping Container Home: The Complete Guide) and the original pack of 20 floor plans, but you wanted more floor plans. More designs and more styles. More Ideas!
So I could wait no longer.
But, before I introduce you to the new plans I’d like to take this moment to thank you.
Everyone who supports us and the Shipping Container Home movement, thank you! If it wasn’t for you, I definitely wouldn’t have created this new book.
You are the ones who emailed me and supported me throughout the whole process, so thank you. Even if you didn’t email and only occasionally visit the website, thank you!
You all help to make Container Home Plans the best online community for shipping container homes.
The New Shipping Container Home Plans Package
At the beginning of this year I got the team together and we started working to develop even more floor plans.
We got back in touch with our local architect and spoke to him about designing a new collection of shipping container home plans. He has been working on them for several months now and has finished designing a collection of 30 new plans.
We originally wanted to produce 10 new plans, but once we got started, people requested all different sorts of styles, so we have ended up with 30 complete new plans including: small one bedroom homes all the way through to large five bedroom family homes.
For those of you curious as to what the plans look like, I’ve included a sample below.
Since the launch of the plans last week, we’ve received a few questions about the new plans package, so I’ve included a list of questions and answers below:
Q: How is this different to the original plans package?
A: The original plans package only contained 20 shipping container home plans. After speaking with you, our customers, the consensus was you wanted more floor plans. More designs and more styles.
This package contains 30 brand new shipping container home floor plans. We’ve tried to take onboard all the feedback we received and create designs which will cater for everyone.
Q: How many plans are there in the package?
A: There are now 50 plans in the package, 30 of which are completely brand new. Each plan comes with a floor plan, front and side elevation. This makes a total of over 150 scaled architectural drawings.
Q: How big are the homes in the plans?
A: The plans range from small one bedroom ‘tiny’ homes all the way through to large five bedroom family homes.
Q: What format are the plans in?
A: The plans are published as a PDF file. We decided to use PDF because it allows us to maintain the image quality of the plans.
Q: Do any of the plans feature container homes which have several floors?
A: Yes, several of the designs have two floors which is perfect for people wanting to build a shipping container home for their family.
The whole team has worked extremely hard to deliver the new Plans Package and I hope this shows when you see them!
So with great pleasure and pride I bring to you the new Shipping Container Home Plans Package!
