In this article, we’re going to cover the main benefits of building your home with shipping containers.Today we will focus on the flexibility of expandable container house compared with traditional houses.
One big advantage of building with shipping containers is that you can convert them off-site.
If you are planning to live in a remote area, building on-site comes with numerous challenges: contractors are difficult to find or expensive to have travel, shipping your materials and supplies is expensive, and the availability of electrical power and water necessary for construction can be limited.
Instead, you can convert your shipping containers in an urban area and then once the fabrication/modifications are complete, you can transport your finished home to your land. Or you can pay a company to build it for you at their factory, then ship you the finished container home.This allows you to live in places where traditional brick homes couldn't be built.
If you're intending to live in the wilderness, the cost of transporting your building materials and paying for contractors to travel that far may end up being much higher than shipping your finished container home to the site in one trip.
