How to Build a Container Home

What it takes is not as challenging as some may think!

Thank you for visiting Container Home Living. The “How to Build a Container Home” page.

My name is Stan Weatherby. I’m the creator behind Container Home Living. I have many other sites and have created several inventions relating to the Shipping Container Industry. Everything from Building Shipping Container Homes to the technology and methods of transport for empty Shipping Containers can be found on my sites. Much of the research and development I did was in my 30,000 square foot facility over a 5-year period and was based off the Intermodal ISO standards. A great article on these standards can be found here: Wikipedia

The systems developed were:

  • Framing Systems
  • Roofing Systems
  • Painting Systems
  • Window Systems (Cut & Burn)
  • Connection Systems
  • Foundation Anchoring Systems
  • Design and Engineering Methods

The home represented here is referred to as “The Chester,” named after the customer who purchased the home. “The Chester” was set up in Limestone, Tennessee in 2019 and will soon be part of a wedding venue. It was part of my final ‘R & D’ for the connection systems and “Cut and Burn” window systems. Its construction contains one 40′ high cube, a one-trip shipping container, one 20′ flat rack shipping container and two 20′ standard height one-trip shipping containers.
