CON­TAINER VAN LIV­ING Designing a house out of a con­tainer van sounds re­ally cool, ac­cord­ing to Buji and nikki. But be­fore you go crazy day­dream­ing about it, be sure to ask your­selves these ques­tions first: 1. What kind of con­tainer should you

get? if pos­si­ble, choose high cube con­tainer vans for a bet­ter floor-to-ceil­ing height. it’s worth the ad­di­tional cost. 2. How do you move the con­tainer to the

site? check for tight streets and cor­ners as well as trees, por­tals, and low elec­tri­cal wires that might get in the way. You will need a ver­ti­cal clear­ance of at least 15 feet. 3. How do you position the con­tainer? in de­ter­min­ing the proper ori­en­ta­tion, con­sider in­su­la­tion and sun shad­ing. Take note: you may need an ac­tual crane to lower the con­tainer van onto the build­ing site. For more con­tainer van home ar­ti­cles, log on to www.re­al­liv­ing.com.ph
