What is a Container Home?

Container Homes are modified shipping containers that are finished to act as modern, efficient residential buildings. Container homes can range from a single container or multiple containers can be combined to create full scale larger homes & cottages. Container homes are extremely durable & sustainable, offering superior structural strength that makes them ideal homes for rugged landscapes or harsh weather & climates. Container homes are prefabricated to municipal building codes using the same finishes as traditional homes - including spray foam insulation, electrical / plumbing / HVAC, windows & doors, drywall and exterior cladding.


Benefits of Modular Construction

Build Savings - starting from costs, can be 10-15% cheaper than traditional wood framed buildings 

Finance Cost Savings - production time of 3-6 months compared to 12-15 months for traditional builds = reduced finance costing 

Prefab Construction - buildings are built 75-90% in a climate controlled shop = increased efficiencies, less waste and costs  

Metal Construction - containers meet and surpass building codes and are superior to wood framing. They are rugged and are ideal in harsh climates and rough terrain. 

Comfort Benefits - containers are spray foam insulated, therefore are much easier to heat & cool and keep drafts and bugs out. 

Green Benefits - containers can be equipped with energy efficient heating, cooling, lighting, solar & smart technologies to reduce energy use - creating net zero homes.

Reduced Impact on Neighbours - building is installed in 1-2 days, finishing trades 1-3 weeks (versus 12-15 months for traditional builds)
