Anyone in the market for affordable, eco and sustainable living friendly, inexpensive, innovative, moveable shelters has come across some information about the prefabricated shipping container homes. The business opportunity that lies in this potentially booming market is remarkable.
Of course it does take a bit of construction work to fix up these steel containers including installing insulation, plumbing, electrical, windows and doors. 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.
Whether a motivated potential homeowner or a contractor looking for a great new business opportunity, look into prefabricated shipping container homes, you might just be on the wave of a future housing solution.
Here is a potential market for individual units; baby boomers. As of the writing of this article the first wave of baby boomers are turning 65 and becoming senior citizens. They will be looking for retirement home possibilities on an extremely limited budget. It is no secret that most baby boomers have little to no savings and that’s information prior to the recent economic downturn; imagine the possibilities. Visualize a senior community with homes made from prefab shipping containers. Remember that most baby boomers lead the march on ecology, environmentalism and sustainable living. Research shows that people who value those ideals support the manufacture of these homes. Consider up selling this type of development in your area and research the opportunity to pre-sell the homes.
How do we help the environment when choosing a container home? Well, first of all, we save trees because building a house with shipping containers made of steel allows us to eliminate the use of many wood elements. Another point is energy saving during home construction, which is usually much quicker in comparison to traditional house building. On the other hand, when a shipping container is out of service, it is either stored indefinitely (wasting away and contaminating soil) or melted down resulting in high energy losses and atmosphere contamination. Building container homes, hotels, hospitals, and dormitories allows us to avoid those scenarios.
Emergency shelter shipping container homes are all placed on foundations that will meet, and generally exceed, the levels of protection needed in the homes foundation. Additionally, the mostly steel construction will not be prone to cracking, or fracturing, as would a concrete structure. This leads to longer life and lower maintenance for your home.
