How to Build a Shipping Container Home | EP09 Building the Bedrooms

We made built-in beds for this shipping container tiny house that have storage space underneath. Shipping container homes are often quite narrow and a typical bedframe takes up alot of space without fitting perfectly. This is the 9th episode of our series on building a shipping container house and its coming along nicely. This was an easy solution that is clean and modern

Buying the Shipping Containers: We purchased one trip condition hi-cube containers. California requires that shipping containers used for homes have documentation showing that have not had toxic or radioactive materials in them. This normally means that you need one trip condition containers with appropriate certificates. I bought my containers from and paid $4800 each for the 40-foot hi-cube containers and $3250 for the 20-foot hi-cube container. Hi-cube containers are a foot taller than typical shipping containers.
