The cost of a 40-feet cargo container is about US$1200. As you can imagine, building a house made from shipping containers is very affordable. In general, the cost to build container house is half that of the cost of building a conventional house. Container homes are low cost, very strong, have a fast construction time, easy to modify, and shipping containers are widely available.
Believe it or not, it is actually cheaper to produce a new shipping container than transport one back. So the question is: Shipping containers are definitely a renewable resource.
Building permits for a shipping container home may vary by state and county
Eco-friendly homes constructed using recycled shipping containers help in creating enough space for a garden that can grow vegetables and fruits. The organic waste that is disposed of can be placed on the compost heap, which fertilizes the garden. It is also possible to collect the rainwater and use the same to water the garden. If everyone makes the effort to create a garden in your home, it is possible to achieve a greener Earth.
Functional and flexible
Above I`ve outlined the three main benefits most home-owners will immediately notice. They are in fact three of the main things many people look at when buying any type of home. 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.
