But why shipping containers really make sense for building construction, is that they are an inherently standard, portable perfect module. So what’s so great about that? Lets start by taking a step back and looking at modular construction. Modern modular construction was born after World War II when factories sought to retool assembly lines to manufacture peace time products instead of armaments. The biggest single expense in conventional (site built) building construction was (and still is) labor. The precarious nature of building sites and uncertainty of weather and time delays, compound this expense. Add to the mix poor quality control. Modern modular construction sought to alleviate these issues by bringing the majority of a home’s construction into a controlled, factory environment. The dissection and reduction of homes and buildings into component modules transportable to sites via highway, waterway, air, or rail began.
While most projects of this sort you can plan yourself (with some appropriate help) there are now many organizations that offer turnkey home build services featuring fully kitted and pre-built container homes that can be shipped to your building plot and then assembled.
Before you begin to buy the building materials, picture first what sort of house you need and look for the assistance of an expert planner to make the outline you must. This can help you in building up the vital angles that are required for your home arrangement, such as, what number of containers are required in making a home or a two-story home. This is likely the greatest speculation you have had and you need to spend your cash admirably.
In the early 1950`s in America families could buy a modest new home for around $20000 after you added in the property taxes furniture appliances and move-in costs. In today`s real estate market in the United States purchasing the same type of house in a typical middle class neighborhood might cost you around $200000 depending on the location and other factors.
