Containers are designed to have some air circulation under the floor. They spent their life on concrete, asphalt, steel chassis or other containers. Not usually on the dirt or especially under the dirt. If you put the bottom in dirt the moisture would make the bottom a mold/rot pit in no time unless you live in the desert. I wouldn’t invest in a home built on a rotting foundation. Turning upside down ...... Removing the wooden floor is a major project and now you have to do something about the rusting steel.

The hotel — 香箱乡祈福所, which apparently translates as Xiang Xiang Xiang Pray House — was built with 35 new containers and includes 21 tiny, luxe guest rooms of either 161 or 321 square feet each. The shipping container hotel was designed by Tonghe Shanzhi Landscape Design, a Beijing firm, who had the modules built off-site and then shipped them to the hotel location for button-up work. According to CNN Go, the fabrication methodology resulted in a quick turnaround time — three months to design, build, transport, and finish the containers — resulting in 40% savings in the construction schedule. The hotel will open in August 2012. [+] More about Xiang Xiang Xiang Pray House near Changzhi. Credits: Tonghe Shanzhi Landscape Design.

Tiny Log Cabin on a Trailer This tiny log cabin on a trailer is 8′ x 16′. If your spouse or significant other is hesitant this can be a way for you to give it a real shot. The owner, Les, built the home himself back in 2009 and he uses it as a rental on his property on Lake Champlain. There’s a private beach where visitors can kayak, canoe, row boat or paddle boat. He built this in a unique way compared to most other tiny houses on trailers out there because he left the sides on the utility trailer intact. Les designed it this way because he believes it’s stronger this way structurally.

RECESS: bunker Archives When I designed RECESS, the plan called for a drain in the center of the bunker floor to evacuate rainwater (seep), spills, blood from the slaughter of animals, or human waste. As plan became reality, I recognized the flaw in my design: property. The bunker was the lowest point in my backyard, so in order for the water to flow out, the pipe would need to exit the side of the hill that my house sits on. Unfortunately, that "hill" was subdivided thirty years ago, and the downhill side is owned by a neighbor whose roof line sits level with my backyard. After about a month of discussion, I managed to convince my neighbor that the 3" white PVC pipe I wanted to punch through our shared block wall was a good idea. During the first phase of construction, I'd plumbed the drainpipe out past the deck so that I could more easily tie into it. Once the pipe was tied in, I carefully measured down the block wall on the property line, and chiseled through the find the pipe.

Well, it turns out there are a lot of alternative framing systems out there. Why would you use one of them to build your tiny house? In a lot of ways, conventional 2×4 stud framing is pretty awesome.
