Cubic Inspirations- Part 1: Decorating The Box

The biggest complaint most people have with shipping container homes is that they look like shipping 
containers.... Over the next few days ISBU Association  will show you how to make the transition from
"rusty to respectable".

As with any home it has a frame, an interior and an exterior. We want you to understand that an ISBU 
shipping container home or office can easily have the same beauty as a conventional home, or maybe 
easier. We will show you designs and floor plans for 1, 2, 3, 4, and even 5 bedroom homes, all made
an ISBU shipping container superstructure.

Soon you will see how you can get not only City approval, but even more important, the approval from
your neighbors.

Below is the evolution of  the very basic 20' ISBU shipping container home or office. Most ISBU
construction projects use 40HC containers or multiple attached 40HC to create the size home or
office you will want.

    A shipping container ready for recycling into a quality ISBU for home or office construction.

    A shipping container cleaned, sanded, painted and ready for home construction.

    ISBU shipping container home basic.

    Basic ISBU shipping container home with door, windows and roof.

    Stucco shipping container home design.

    Siding design on shipping container home.

    Cargo container design with red brick exterior.

    Shipping container design with recycled brick exterior

    Standard ISBU shipping container home with original exterior design.

STEP 1-
Choosing a good quality used
shipping container that will soon
become an ISBU module for your
construction project.


























STEP 2-
Remove the dirt, oxidation and any
large dents. Inspect the floor, seal it
or replace it. Weld any loose joints
and sand with a grinder.

Clean the interior and exterior well
before painting.

Paint with a good metal primer, then
add Ceramic insulation beads to the
final coats of paint. Polyurethane or
epoxy paints are recommended.

The ceramic insulation beads are not
just being used for insulation and
thermal protection, but for their other
benefits on metal finishes.    [Link]














STEP 3-
Technically it is an official ISBU now
and ready for cutting, modification,
and construction.

Consult your local city, county or
provincial office for compliance info
and any licenses you may need.

Before you cut, have your plans and
understand clearly how to do cut 
and still retain the valuable strength.

more details.   [Link]
















STEP 4-
What look do you want? What does
your building code require?

A flat roof add the least cost but gives
a very nice look.

A Green Roof or patio can be a nice
functional option.

Remember, you don't need to add
any roofing. Appearance is the main
consideration.


















STEP 5-
We are adding all these steps so you
can realize your simple options and
understand that shipping container
based housing does not need to look
like a shipping container.

The biggest complaints we read and
hear are that all Shipping Container
designs are still raw ugly boxes.

...the general public wants something
more and it's simple to achieve.


















STEP 6-
All the unlimited options...

Even the small basic box looks so
much different with low cost stucco,
siding, brick, or simply good paint,
hardware, accessories and some 
creative color designs.




















































































So here you've seen some very 
basic changes to the "Box"  that 
most people seem to miss or may 
not be aware they can do.

Even the very basic 20'GP box can 
look much nicer and become more 
acceptable to build, buy or sell.
