Shipping Container House, New Haven, Connecticut

Connecticut Container House - Shipping Container Units

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.
