This book is more of an excuse for a book than anything else. It is supposed to talk about making small home out of shipping containers. It does in excruciating detail -- that ends up leaving the impression that it would be better to use a firm to procure and build your shipping container home for me. As I turned each page, waiting to get to something more than endless details and self-promotion of the author -- I became increasingly frustrated and disappointed. Not like any other "small home" book I've ever read -- which encourage imagination and provide examples of homes that have been built and the thought processes that went into them. I do not recommend this to anyone except maybe the odd insomniac who needs something really boring and useless to fall asleep to. Skip this one for sure.

This book is a bit strange. There is lots of information about the shipping containers, their sizes and types, where to buy them, what their strengths and weakness in construction are.....but a great deal of the book is about the disadvantages, difficulties, and costs of trying to build a shipper container home. I am interested in the tiny home movement, but this book went a long way to convince me that shipping containers are NOT the way to go.
