The OP is not looking for advice on whether or not to build a container house- he states he has already done that and made his decision.  He is honest about having no construction experience, but if s

This is about the only design I would use and the roof would be Cogon grass or nipa which means that the roof pitch would be a lot steeper then design below..About 45 Degrees or higher. Also large 2

I think if correctly ventilated, shaded and insulated it could be cooler than the cement overnight storage heaters that most people live and work in here?

 

Is that new price, I think second-hand alloy ones can be had for that?

Yes and a cup of coffee would be nice too if you don't mind too much.

And some biscuits as well, perhaps? Sure thing.

 

 

 

Okay, now, can we get back on topic here, good folks?

Yeah ventilation .. ambient temp 27 deg. C (80 deg. F) you could open both ends for ventilation but hard to make the AC get down the temp to a more pleasant 23 Deg C . Steel walls suck up more heat then u can imagine compared to hollow block, u can fry an egg on those walls after a few hours in the morning sun. Even the sun in chilly Norway would make the steel walls on ships i built shimmer with heat on the inside after lunch. Simply put u have to build it so the walls are out of direct sunlight from dusk til dawn down here. IMHO :)

 

The price was for used containers offered to me by a supplier in Malaysia, delivered in cebu

I've lived in these in Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan.  If the builder insulates it correctly, they are ok.  Of course, having an airconditioner installed makes a big difference as well.  The builders tear out the floor, pour a slab in there, cut the window and door holes, frame the inside, put the insulation in, windows, doors, wire it up, plumb it if its a wet unit, and you have a place to live.  Doesnt take too long at all.
