Next think about the total costs associated with building a cargo container home. Shipping containers by themselves are relatively cheap but it takes a lot of time and labor to transform it into a cozy home. You will also need to ship the container to your building site which might be more expensive than you think. Foundation work also needs to be done which tacks on extra cost. Before you purchase a shipping container for your new home consult with a knowledgeable building contractor who can accurately calculate your total cost. An even better option is to work with a company that specializes in cargo container architecture. They will have an expert opinion on everything you will need to do and they might even be able to sell you a container for your home and make all of the modifications you need ahead of time. By dealing with one company you can be sure of what all of your costs will be since you will not need to reconcile quotes from different vendors and contractors.

It just goes to show the explosion in shipping container homes in the past few years is totally justifiable, and why so, so many people are turning to these containers to build their own dream homes.

Shipping containers offer a modular and durable set of building blocks of which to develop your home from. They can be bought either new or used at relatively low cost.
