    I wouldn't think there would be too many for sale in Dumaguete. You could probably find that sort of thing at the port in Manila though. I'd imagine that would end up costing you a lot more than using normal local supplies though.

    Here's an idea I like; using the panel cutouts to make sliding typhoon shutters for the windows and doors. Also adds to security when away.

    When I was in Afghanistan I got several quotes from local companies that converted containers to living quarters for my company. The prices started around 10k USD for a 20 footer without a restroom. 15k up for fully furnished 20 footers. I think it was around 1k for delivery from Kabul (about 2+ hours drive to the base I was at). Those were government prices prices, I'm sure if a person did it themselves they could achieve the same results for about half the price.

    If I ever moved back to the US I would seriously consider building this type of home. Much cheaper than the traditional building methods.

    Yes i was thinking about contacting the contractor for this but i thought it would be cheaper if i sourced the containers myself
    they've been building quite a lot of building for siliman out of shipping containers

    The prices seem reasonable enough wonder how much shipping them here would cost though

    You can try these guys:

    Lorenzo Shipping Corporation

    Telephone- 236-2109, 236-2241 / 236-1949 (Fax)

    Note: I think that the Cebu area code is 32.

    This company ships from Cebu to Dumaguete on Saturdays. At least that's what the internets tells me....so this company might not exist anymore or the phone number could have changed.
