Containers & Modifications
CGI Container Sales in Atlanta handled the delivery of the containers to the project site. The delivery required the coordination of multiple drivers. It also required an electric pole be moved before delivery could begin.
The house was built with (6) 40’ High Cube containers to form a 3-story high structure. The project started in July 2010 with the last containers delivered in October 2010. ConGlobal Atlanta supplied two of the four containers and did all steel cut outs, framing, and exterior painting. Each container had 50-65 man hours of work.
Details & Summary
The house boasts a very industrial look with the inside walls removed to provide an open-concept. Much of the container interior is covered except for the ceiling to maintain the industrial feel but has all the modern amenities. This current house is the second container house built by Glen Donaldson, a general contractor in the Atlanta area. The first house took six months to build and was completed in September 2006. The two houses are next door to each other, offering a complementary look.
