Shipping Container House, New Haven, Connecticut
This house was designed in the winter of 2010-2011, and is currently under construction. The containers have been fabricated and will be erected shortly. Here is a video showing where we are at:
The house will be two stories, each story will have 3 – 45′ containers. The containers were modified to have large openings between them and to have a stairway. The foundation is actually a deep crawl space, which we had to do because of site conditions. The site is a vacant lot where a house was demolished, and there is poor soil to a depth of 5′, so the easiest way was to build an uninhabited basement under the house.
