Amazing !!

This book is really great! It's easy to read, there's tons of advice and the author makes you aware of a bunch of options with no nonsense. When I finally settle down I'll use this book to help me build my shipping home. I'm not personally interested in any of the floor plans in the book but maybe someone else would find them helpful. The rest of the info was very useful.

Excellent

I'm on the fence between 3 and 4 stars. If you know nothing about container building (and I didn't), the first few chapters are informative as the author provides some important info that pertains specifically to container acquisition and building, but after that, it's pretty much an overview of standard non-container construction. If you have no construction experience at all, this book is a good primer. If you have any construction or even renovation experience, you'll find 2/3's of the book of limited value. I don't know when this book was written, but it has an entire page for "telephone" connections and that tells me the book hasn't been updated in a while as there is absolutely no mention of cable for hi-speed internet, satellite (if you're of grid), solar connections, etc. A lot has happened in the container building world in the last 5 years, so while this book does have some value in the early chapters, it is in need of an update. For $7 it was worth it to read the first few chapters. There are no color photos in the book. They are all grainy, black and white photos and some very simple diagrams, so for the cost, it wasn't a bad investment.

An worth purchase!!

It is a comprehensive schematic type book. I expected a little bit of more variety and creativity with some color pictures of different styles. It is almost like a home depot manual very cut and dry and in black and white inside. It is meant to be a true builders manual for a shipping container home.
