The advantages of the container house

Transport, pre-fabricated modules can also be easily transported by ship, truck, or rail, because they already conform to standard shipping sizes.

Availability, used shipping containers are available across the globe.

Expense, many used containers are available at an amount that is low compared to a finished structure built by other labor-intensive means such as bricks and mortar which also require larger more expensive foundations. Construction involves very little labor and used shipping containers requiring only simple modification can be purchased from major transport companies for as little as US $1,200 each. Even when purchased brand new they are seldom more than US $6000.


Containers are designed to be supported by their four corners making a very simple foundation possible. As well the top four corners are very strong as they are intended to support a stack of other containers.


A 40ft shipping container weights over 3,500KG. When upcycling shipping containers, thousands of kilograms of steel are saved. In addition when building with containers, the amount of traditional building materials needed (i.e. bricks and cement) are reduced.
