All advice, plans, examples to build your house from a recycled container. Environmentally friendly, DiY, open source and attractive.
Longing for a cabin for the summer? RSCP (Residential Shipping Container Primer) offers all the resources with illustrations and comments to transform a container into a dwelling (with terrace, swimming-pool, sunroof…). With many examples on top. The freight transport container costs very little and can be set up (relatively) simply at the back of one’s garden. American architects and designers from Koop architecture + media are driving this durable alternative to construction. They may offer help (quote, technical review…) if your container housing project exceeds your skills as a DiY builder. The construction manual, plans and pieces of advice are open source and can be shared freely.
