Container Homes Construction
When building your home, you must make sure that you spend your money most smartly and prudently.
What are container homes?
Container homes are made with Concretes . These are the ones which are seen carrying goods in trucks, trains, and ships. These look exactly like homes. Several containers are combined together to make it look like a home. As a matter of fact, several shipping containers combined together can make a huge apartment home.
Why Container Homes?
Shipping containers have been used for everything from urban farms to off-the-grid getaways and all-in-one pools. Made from the thousands of surplus containers that sit on docks around the world, these homes can be an eco-friendly alternative to traditional building materials. Shipping container diehards also love their durability and, in some cases, their portability—although moving a container can take time and be expensive. And while there are plenty of DIY plans out there, it can be hard to devote the time to transforming a utilitarian box of steel into a cozy abode.
More about Container Homes
Luckily, several companies sell shipping container homes—one is even available on Amazon—that can be delivered and assembled in as little as 10 weeks.
Containers typically come in two sizes, either 20 feet by 8 feet or 40 feet by 8 feet. The smaller of the two equals about 160 square feet of living space, but the larger container gets you 320 square feet. That’s tiny home living at its smallest, so some manufacturers will also combine containers to create more spacious homes.
Average Size: 534 square feet
Alberta-based Honomobo builds several different models of shipping container homes.
The HO# uses three shipping containers knit together to create a bedroom, kitchen with an island, and a 21-foot front window to maximize light. Honomobo’s largest shipping container house is a three-bedroom, two-bath stunner with 1,530 square feet.
All Honomobo homes are built to local building codes and are typically installed on a permanent foundation.
