      On that website you can find the containers you need to build your home. I found 40' x 8' for $2,000 each and 20' x 8' for $1,500 each... Alot there in the south Florida area.

    I have experience 10 years. but as a freelancer, I am new, I want to show how to be a freelancer. I need the exact size of the area to Your wishes! and how many squares of the house You expect? the depth and height of the Foundation? and a snapshot of the neighbor houses approximately a sense of the atmosphere of the street)))

      5 Containers would be only 1600 sq ft. If you want a 3 car garage to fit your mini vans then that would be at a minimum of 3 - 20' Containers (but the minivans are 6' 7" wide and the interior of the containers is 7' 8" so that would be a VERY tight squeeze). These are all of the things I analyze when undertaking any project.

    Thank you all for your suggestions! I am sure you all deserve those prices, but i am treating this like a what if project (if any new freelancers or students really whom ever needs it wants to take a stab at it) I actually have about a 20% chance of building it. I will be sure to pay that to engineer. that does my final design. so take it as you will. if my winer thinks its little and i like his design enough i will be willing to tip big! like 5-10 dollars! LoL
