The company had researched the use of steel shipping containers to build housing in Europe and studied the use of the containers in rapid military construction operations, where they’ve been used to build anything from airport control centres, to mobile housing and operations headquarters.
Burk’s Falls was chosen for the pilot project because the town of about 1,000 residents was experiencing a shortage of rental housing. Construction of Phase 1 — a three-storey, 12-unit building — began in January 2011 with the excavation of the foundation. Plumbing, electrical service and HVAC systems are installed though smaller access holes cut through the units.
While the existing buildings used poured concrete foundations, Oliver believes that they could be produced even more cost-effectively by being built slab-on-grade. Enter your email address to subscribe to Eco Container Home and receive notifications of new posts by email.

Firstly, many of the shipping container homes that we see constructed across the world are, in our opinion, design triumphs. The developer had already purchased shipping containers from various locations, but the company’s first experience with the heavy-gauge steel took the project on a steep learning curve. Oliver soon discovered that the containers were already fitted with a locking system designed to stabilize them during transport at sea.
However, because the existing plan used on Phase 1 was better suited to wood, the developer opted for wood-frame construction on that building only. The derelict Blue Nose Hotel was demolished in December 2010 with the assistance of Marshall Construction of Emsdale, Ont. The exterior is finished with traditional eaves, roof and soffits, then coated with external sprayed insulation.

There are also some interesting lessons to be learnt in here in terms of project planning, design, and construction methods.
Bachelor apartments will then hit the market at $625 per month and two-bedroom units at $825.
