FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How are container houses made?

Container houses are constructed by stacking or aligning containers to form a robust structure that can be used for accommodation.

Containers feature fortified vertices and edges which translate into a highly durable structure. Converted container houses need to be fully reinforced as any cuts made to the metal significantly impair the structural integrity of the build.

‍

Are container homes cheaper to build?

It’s difficult to specify the exact cost of building a shipping container home because there are many variables. The number of containers involved with the build, insulation materials, and cladding will have a large bearing on the price.

Although, one thing is certain: The cost of building a shipping container home will be significantly lower than a brick and mortar build of similar dimensions.

‍

How do you insulate a shipping container?

The level of insulation required for a container home will depend on local weather conditions. Extremely cold or hot climates will require a greater level of insulation.

There are several insulation options to consider when insulating your container home including spray foam, Rockwool, Kingspan, and more.

‍

Are container houses legal?

The legalities surrounding the construction and habitation of container homes varies from location to location. Before committing to a build, it’s wise to seek permission from your local planning office before commencing with the project, otherwise, you may be forced to destroy it later.

Before approaching the planning officers, take the time to finalise your plans and be clear about your vision. A well-defined plan will make it easier to convince sceptical officials to approve the build.

‍

Are container homes safe?

Is it dangerous to live in a container home? Not necessarily. One of the primary concerns surrounding life in a container house is the presence of harmful chemicals derived from coatings applied to the paintwork.

One way to avoid this issue entirely is to purchase new containers and request that no coating be applied to the structure. However, purchasing β€˜of the shelf’ containers significantly increase build costs.
