Creating a Container Home
Created by Elliot Franzke
After researching different container homes, I drew a buddle diagram. The bubble diagram shows me a rough sketch of what my container home is going to look like.
After creating the bubble diagram, I had to create a neater and nicer drawing. This new drawing is to scale and resembles the bubble diagram
The next step after the 3d model is to create floor diagrams, elevations, and a site plan for my container home. These three diagrams show how my house will look like, where different rooms are located inside the house and any vegetation that is outside the house.
After creating the three diagrams, I then needed to create my container home in Sketch up. This is the last step in finishing my container home. In this step, I created a 3d model of my home and added details. I added doors, windows, cabinets, sinks, toilets. showers, and other items you would find in a home.
Location Of My Container Home
My container home would be located in a small town by a creek. I like small towns and I like creeks, they are peaceful. My home would also have big trees that give off lots of shade. I picked a small town and not a city because small towns are enjoyable, they are not in a big rush like city's but they are quit and peaceful.
I liked this project, it was challenging but not too challenging to where it wasn't fun. It was cool to see my house start as a little drawing and then go to a 3d model. My least favorite part of the project was the navigating on sketch up. I could not figure out how to do it and it was very frustrating but overall, this project was a fun one.
