    Container Homes

    With the world suffering through a global pandemic and all that it entails, many are wondering how to ultimately become more self-sufficient. Consumers are becoming increasingly concerned with ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle–even when it comes to the design & build of their homes.

    Enter the Container Home.

    Container Homes are exactly what you would think: repurposed shipping containers designed to be unique, modern, industrial, and often self-sufficient.

    While you may initially balk at the idea of living inside a sterile metal box, give it a thought. Container homes are an efficient way to not only reuse a retired shipping container, which run from about $1,500-5,000 depending on size, but also create a unique home that could be customized to suit everything from floor plans, finishes, size, and efficiency. Many container homes are completely “off the grid”, running totally off a well and solar panels. Container homes are also interesting in that they can run wildly in size. While most stick towards the trend of a “tiny home” size, if you have the budget and the available design you could hypothetically build on with the rectangles indefinitely–ultimately creating a massive home to the size of your liking.
