Costs for cargo containers vary but on average you can get a used one for about $1,500. The average container has about 350 square feet of space. Someone who wants a 3,000 square foot home would have to pay approximately $80 per square foot to have a home built using traditional methods. In some parts of the U.S. it costs well over $100 per square foot.

Yet when all is said and done the homes are made from recycled materials cheap and unique. And this is just what many green home owners are looking for right now.
The answer: They can be as green as you want them to be.
Hurricane winds may be a thing of the past if one was to live in a cargo box as a home. The foundations of these structures are strong enough to hold many stacks of the same weight and size on top of one another making this an incredible, self-sustaining masterpiece.
