As the cost of owning a home becomes less accessible for the majority of the people, solutions and alternatives arrive. Container homes are increasingly popular for several reasons. First, they’re customizable due to the material and shape. It’s common to see containers repurposed for architecture. They’re designed to be stacked, so they can support heavy loads. This also makes them quite resistant to harsh weather, something you look for in a house.
Container construction requires a different set of skills than conventional construction. The main reason is that you need to weld or drill the attachments of the container. As opposed to the conventional construction method that requires framing for example. Containers are super available, you can get a used container or a new one. Either way, container construction is highly customizable.
