Shipping Container Home / ISBU - Sketchup Animation, from Houston TXFrom
Uploaded by on Dec 31, 2010

14 - 40' high cube containers. Stacked and modified for residential use. 2240 Sq. Foot 4 bedroom / 2 bath / 4 car garage. The roof has a 5/12 pitch and is built using 31 - 40' pre-engineered roof trusses spaced 24" apart. The foundations are 3 solid 1' wide by 6' 6" footings with embedded 10" x 1/2" steel plates used to weld the containers to. It stands 1' above the ground. 

 The section plane / section cut animation proved to be rather difficult at first but once I learned the method it wasn't too hard to complete. It was exported at 1920x1080 @ 10 FPS. I built this in Sketchup in order to more easily relay my vision to potential builders vs. just telling them verbally what I was looking to do. I hope you guys like it...
