DO NOT BUY

Complete waste, don’t bother. Walk away from this book, it’s not worth your money or audible credits. I should have listened to the other two reviews, so it’s completely my fault I wasted time, energy, and allowed my brain cells to whither over this drivel. Whoever wrote those other reviews was obviously commissioned to do so.

This book is a disappoint on the most basic level. Content was non-existent. I honestly don’t remember anything they said that a reasonable person wouldn’t know. Yes, some guy reads the words to you, great. But the words themselves are hollow. Even his voice sounds like he’s about to teach us the ABC’s. He literally drags every phrase out because thee is no real meat to this content.

The author tells you some things to look out for when building, but offers NO SOLUTIONS!!!! I can come up with a list of issues on my own. A steel metal box gets cold and water gets on it which causes rust... duh! Insulate it. Duh! You’ll need insurance... duh! It’s hard to come by... duh! Solution: none whatsoever!!!!

WALK AWAY!!! DON’T BUY!!!!

A future home!

This is the proof of how amazing and intelligent a human being is. This is what our world together with technology on how we live being modernized. Costing and the permits may be a variable but definitely worth it. It have its disadvantages but most of it have its good and very useful advantages. A good one to listen when you are planning for a container home!

Amazing Build!

I really admire this kind of build. The creativity and the making of good stuff out of something reusable. Me and my husband plans to have this shipping container as an extension to our house. That is why I have this as our guide.

presented neatly.

All information including the basics and the risks of getting shipping container homes are presented neatly. The guide and information are pretty simple which are easy to follow.

Giving shipping container home a try.

This almost-perfect guide gave me enough reasons to give shipping container home a try. Glad I looked into this.

disappointed with this book

didn't really like the book it was mainly talking about things that have nothing to do with building a shipping container home.
