Container homes and buildings are becoming extremely popular lately due to their affordability during these times of increasing housing prices. We have the capability of fabricating for you any type of structure you need using shipping containers, ISBUs, from a simple cottage to a comfortable modern home, a commercial building for your business or even an above the ground pool! We created a beautiful storage building for a client, matching the look of their house, adding faux windows for a nice touch.
Basically, we modify and re-purpose used shipping containers and weld them together to form the steel structure of a beautiful and fully-functional home or building. With proper planning, you can endeavor to design and build a luxurious house for half the price of a regular one.
There are two important things to understand about container buildings, before you make a decision:
Shipping container houses are significantly cheaper to build than regular homes. They are very resource efficient and can be made to look like regular houses by combining several containers and adding other building materials.
Local laws will need to be checked to verify if this type of construction is allowed in your intended location. You will need a building permit to build or install a container house, and you’ll likely need a site plan in order to obtain the building permit. These vary by location so you will need to check with your local building permit office for regulations.
The advantage of a container building is its longevity. The structure itself may be fire, wind and hurricane proof, and advantage here in Florida. With the proper primer and paint, and yearly maintenance, corrosion issues can be avoided.
We have several designs of container homes we can show you, or you can search for ideas on your own. Just look at some of the container building examples in our page. We have satisfied clients for this type of work.
If you're interested in a container home or building, please give us a call and we can guide you through the process, or work with your architect or general contractor.
