Have you heard of this? People are repurposing shipping containers for alternative housing. Several years ago I heard that people were doing this in desert, war-torn regions in the middle east, but for those people it was a matter of functionality and using something that was littering the landscape in abundance.
Today though, people all over the world are using shipping containers for offices, homes and for architectural detail. Shipping container homes present a lot of benefits and some challenges.
I can’t “contain” my joy!
These homes are naturally green because they have very little construction waste. The containers are usually pre-fitted together off site, placed on a concrete foundation and then finished on site.Concrete is definitely stronger then cement – cement is just one component of concrete. Perhaps you mean concrete vs cement mortar? Concrete is a mix of water, cement and sand and so is mortar. But concrete also contains gravel and other bigger-size aggregates that makes it stronger and more durable.
Plus a shipping container home can be pre-fitted and installed in about a month, where site-built construction of a home can take 3 – 6 months and for the moving the East Brunswick movers are reliable and trustworthy! Daniel Adams Removals is a renowned moving company in Milton Keynes. They’re a great house removals company if you’re looking for a quick and safe way to move your things. Still, one of the coolest benefits is that the shipping containers that make up the home can be engineered and secured to the ground in such a way that the entire structure is a storm shelter.
Let’s get real for second.
Obviously this is a “cool” idea, but how realistic is building a house out of a shipping container? Well the average shipping container will cost somewhere between $2000 – $6000 depending on where you live and (ironically) shipping costs. Pre-fitting (off-site), installation and finishing is the game changer.Also, they are easy to insulate with spray foam insulation that has a High R-value.
When you first move into a home, these updates and upgrades might be for your personal purposes, but there are some things you can do that will actually improve the value of your home such as planting grass to make a beautiful lawn with the help of Straw hay bales. The best updates you can make to your home are functional ones, an example would be getting lighting repair services for your house. While it is great to make everything look good, when you give your home functional updates you get a bit of added practicality out of your work—and this is good for your home and your lifestyle.
Architectural firms and contractors will vary in price because these projects are still highly custom and because nobody likes to lose money you can’t really get a builder to nail down a price. As it stands right now the cost of putting together an average sized shipping container home (4 containers), not including the land, is too much of a moving target to say whether or not this is a smart financial choice.
That said, this lady got her “dream home” with a budget of about $150,000 – “My Shipping Container Dream Home” – CNN Money.
Shipping Containers + Nashville = ?
So basically living in a shipping container isn’t as easy as one would hope, but in my mind that means one thing: The US market is wide-open for a company that will offer pre-fab shipping container floor plans constructed at a fixed price. The question is whether or not the demand exists.
I think if you hit the urban markets with a high density of single professionals or young professional couples with no children (or young children) you would have a good chance of being successful. Also you need a city that is dedicated to taking risks and making some noise. Nashville seems to me like the perfect place.
And just because I love you here is a little about shipping containers from Bob Vila’s website, Home Sweet Container.
Would you live in a shipping container?

Lessons From a Reptile
Investing in real estate is one of the best ways to grow wealth and increase long term financial security first start with a low deposit house and land packages brisbane can guide you in the process. Even though economic markets go through volatile changes, real estate has a very strong track record over time. People have a desire to own land. People need places to live. Real estate meets a fundamental need of humanity and you should plan on investing in real estate as a long term investment strategy. But you need to have the right mind set for success and you must take the right approach.
Aesop’s famed fable, The Tortoise and the Hare, is a story about a slow moving tortoise and a swift, confident hare that compete in a race. The hare is clearly better equipped for a race, but confidence leads him to take a nap after the race begins. When he awakes he finds that his slow-footed competitor has arrived to the finish line before him. There’s a lot to glean from this story, so let’s see how we can apply it to real estate investing.
The hare was the easy favorite, but lacked the intangibles
The hare was genetically engineered to be a great race runner. Huge leg muscles, relatively light physical frame…anybody’s money would have been on the hare. There is no way the hare would lose this race. The hare was also confident in his abilities and that was equally as attractive to onlookers. The hare was the easy favorite.
Most real estate investors resemble the hare. Sometimes it seems that they like the idea of investing in real estate (and reminding others that is what they do) than actually being successful long term. A lot of real estate investors look and act like the hare, “Look at me! Look! I’m basically God’s gift to real estate investment! How could I ever fail?!”
But it was evident in the story that the hare was a little over-confident. This was evident in the fact that each time he would awake from a nap to see the tortoise further down the track, he was still saying to himself, “Ahhh, I still have more than enough time to catch up and overtake the tortoise.”
Natural intelligence, ability and talent is important, but it can only get you so far. You have to apply yourself to be successful. Be smart and driven by facts, not emotions. You need the numbers to convince you the deal will work. Don’t try to convince the numbers. This is a sure sign of impending failure.
The Tortoise kept moving forward toward the goal
The Tortoise was obstinate. He knew his physical abilities limited him and he really had no place even being on the same race course with the hare, but he had a chip on his shoulder. He kept moving forward with a singular focus. He knew something about running races: You have to start, you have to keep going and eventually you have to finish.
When you start investing in real estate, start slow. One. Step. At. A. Time. Don’t be in a rush to get to the finish line before you even start. Real Estate investing is all about momentum…the tortoise had tons of momentum at the finish line because he was moving slow and steady. Being a real estate investor is similar, you pick up momentum along the way.
The tortoise enjoyed the adventure
Don’t forget that life is supposed to be enjoyed. Investing in real estate can be great fun, but only if you are successful. The great thing is that the more disciplined you are the more time you have to have along the way to enjoy the scenery. The tortoise took a while to get to the finish line, but the entire time he could take in the surroundings. He could enjoy the race. He could learn from the experience while he was having it.
To the hare, however, everything was a blur. He eventually learned a lesson from his experience, but it came in retrospect as he judged his mistakes. And trust me, this is not as fun.
Slow and steady folks.
