NICHOLAS SOCRATES
Introduction
 There is growing interest in the use o shippingcontainers as the basis or habitable structures. These “icons o globalization” are relativelyinexpensive, structurally sound and in abundantsupply. Although, in raw orm, containers are dark windowless boxes (which might place them at oddswith some o the tenets o modernist design...) theycan be highly customizable modular elements o alarger structure.

Shipping Containers as BuildingComponents or Home Construction.No two building projects are the same.Even with modular kit applications,variations due to location and climate,site actors such as grading and slope,and home owner preerences (toname a ew actors) create substantialdierences between projects. Thereis no single perect shipping containerhome design solution, and the mostimportant thing in any home buildingproject is preparation. Preparation,preparation, preparation. Ever hear theold carpenter’s axiom “measure twice,cut once”? Did we mention preparationis important?
