When speaking in perspective about the horrendous economy many want-to-be home owners are triple checking costs and prices and keeping an ear open for any kind of discount or savings on construction labor and costs maintenance reduction and holding onto any or all of the equity in their pockets. So when it becomes a possibility to construct a cool looking secured modern house with the typical classic great looks of the case study houses of the mid 20th Century for a small chunk of the price of traditional construction people start to get interested.
These considerations should not dissuade you from building a shipping container home. They are cheap, efficient, and environmentally friendly structures that can make a unique home. But, as in all major projects, it’s very important to take into account all of the snags that could come your way. By planning ahead, you can make sure that your cargo container home project gets done right.
These homes can be used in the beginning as emergency shelters and then converted into homes and or offices in the future.
Lets understand something here. The prices of homes today has sky rocketed to the heavens. As time goes on, more and more people can not afford a typical living environment. Struggling with mortgages and taxes to pay off their house, why not look into a shipping container as a home for yourself?
Build a strong foundation. Every building or house needs a strong foundation. If the foundation is not well-built, then everything will fall apart. In particular, shipping container homes need solid and cemented foundation. This is to prevent moisture from building up. Since the containers are made of metal, they will be prone to rusting once their protective coatings come off. As much as possible, you want to prevent this from happening so you need a foundation that will not encourage moisture build-up.
There is no doubt that shipping containers are tough.
