Container Home Final
By: Nicholas van Buitenen
This was my first plan for my container home.
This is my bubble diagram to outline my first sketch.
This was created to find out the dimensions and measurements of my house.
This is a back view of my colored sketch up design
This a front view of my colored sketch up design
These are all side views of my house
This is the floor plan of my model
This shows the landscaping and where trees and concrete is located
I like the playful mood to the room and the low exposure of light
I like the amount of space to make the room feel more relaxing
This is a very simple room to make it feel more open
I like the natural exposure of light
The best place for this home would be Texas due to the amount of light this house takes in. Also the pool is necessary for the heat in that specific state. Also, container homes are very popular here. I enjoyed the amount of freedom of choosing what my house would look like. I also liked using sketch up because it gave a visual representation of what my house would look like if it were to be constructed. I was having a lot of troubles putting in windows and doors. Not only was it hard to cut out the necessary lengths of the doors and windows but also finding the right doors from the warehouse that would fit. I could've done better with adding more things and doing better on the landscaping.
