    Thank you for providing this.
    I look forward to getting my copy.
    I’m hoping to get some local contractors and green companies interested.

    As you’ll read in the book, getting it financed and approved for local codes is a wild card.

    You’ll have to get it approved, before you can get it financed… and frankly, MOST folks prefer to NOT seek financing. The greatest “leverage of sensibility” is in building as much DIY as you can, and if possible, having NO mortgage.

    Doing it DIY without a mortgage, and building to code, will give you the possibility to get SOME kind of mortgage and possibly pull a little equity out of it…

    I wouldn’t do that, and it’s unlikely Alex would ever do that. Build your castle… own it free and clear… and become one of the fortunate weird folks in the U.S. who are NOT owned by others.

    Another open question I had was about the basement.
    Does one need to have permit for basement if it is partially finished, used just for storage and utilities closet to make space on the main living floor.
    And also How many people think it is good to have a basement.
    From what i have read so far many have said one needs permit to finish the basement most of the time to make it an extension of living space.And as Alex mentioned in one of the earlier post it may cost a little extra to build a basement and also make it moisture/mold free since it is in constant contact with the underground moisture.
    Just my thought, if i will need a permit to make it part of the home why bother with all the moisture/mold issues, why not go up one floor. Most of the time that area is sparsely used and in my case i was thinking some kind of Home-office, instead of going down one floor and deal with the hassle of mold/moisture just go up one floor and make it a independent area with its own cooling/heating system or a separate zone in the existing HVAC system so that it does not interfere with existing living space.

    Any comments/ideas?

    Are your books and information sent as electronically? I’m living and working in China right now and won’t be back in USA until March 2011 to build my shipping container office next to my machine shop.

    Hi Gerard,

    Yes, my book “Introduction to Container Homes and Buildings” is available electronically. It’s in PDF format and it’s approximately 4mb in size. It’s and easy download.

    Due to the costs involved in publishing of late, we’ve been publishing everything electronically. It makes for high quality documents that are cost effective, and quickly fulfilled.

    Hope this helps.
