Designing your perfect home can be difficult even if you hire the best Architect, but it doesn’t need to be. It comes down to understanding the difference between our needs and wants, what is important and what is a ‘like to have’.
We all have constraints, time and budget are the most common but there are a lot of other considerations. Shipping container homes are a great solution for many people and this workbook will step you through the process in order to build your understanding of container homes and working out the best solution for your ideal home.
Quite a few people have asked “Why are you creating a book which explains how to design and build container homes, when your main business is designing custom container homes for people?”. The fact is, our business has been built on one primary principle “Help as many people as possible to design and build their perfect eco container home”. By providing relevant and useful content for new home builders, we reduce the costs involved for everyone and we can help more people.
The biggest unnecessary cost for container home builders is working out what they really want and how that fits into their budget. This book helps you easily work through what matters most to you and how to get it for the cheapest price.
Many people will still engage an Architect firm such as Eco Home Designer even when they have worked out most of the plans for themselves, however, by having a clear idea of what they want, it will save them $1000s of dollars, time and a lot of confusion.
