This is a new model drawing from my friend Devan Sophia, a Container Home Builder from Lake Jackson, Texas. His work can be seen at his site http://www.isbudesign.com/ and his Facebook page. This is one of his Facebook Photo Albums
Each ISBU container can hold over 600,000 lbs on top of it, and that's still safe enough to travel thousands of miles across oceans in tossing waves and through tropical storms. So we can only imagine the possibilities these boxes have in store for our future homes and commercial structures. Even as you are reading this, the PhiloSophia design team is designing beach houses to be built along the Gulf Coast here in Texas. Since the last hurricane hit, there are numerous empty lots with owners that are starting to see the advantages of building with these nearly indestructible boxes.

Because we're working with metal structures, the design applications are endless. Cutting out sidewalls to accommodate for larger living areas, cutting out windows and doors, adding fireplaces and shelving. It is all accomplished with the simple application of a team of designers and a crew of welders. The rest is finished out by your specifications with the combined efforts of our welders and carpenters.
