Herein is a comprehensive guide for turning shipping containers into homes, their prices and how to buy them. There are also a growing number of manufacturers that are designing prefabricated shipping container houses for $15,000 and up.
One advantage of a shipping container is that it already comes equipped with super-strength and weather-tight roof and walls. For a shipping container home plan, it is a good idea to either remove and replace the floor or cover the existing floor with an industrial epoxy or polyurethane paint. These are Intermodal Steel Building Units, or ISBUs, that are reused as structures for any place and for any purpose. First, let’s get inspired by some of the benefits of having a storage tank as a home and some examples of some homes people have constructed.
Bigger shipping container homes cost as much as $215,000, which is still only a fraction of the price of some conventional homes. The containers are usually faceted to the corners and welded to embedded steel reinforcements. Although usually mandatory for building codes, it is possible to forgo a foundation in some areas. For a 20 foot container, it will take about 5 sheets of plywood and double that for a 40-footer.
Be it a home, a studio, a port or a palace, shipping containers are inexpensive and durable buildings for residential, commercial and even industrial use.
This is because the water run-off design of a single container is negated by that extra join.
Otherwise, an epoxy or polyurethane coating completely seals the chemicals and off-gassing into the floor, rendering the container a safe place to live.
Matt Mooney, a principal at Corgan based in Texas, decided for his next home he wanted to use shipping containers.
Brenda Kelly from iqcontainerhomes has been dreaming of living in a shipping container home since she was 13, and she has been modelling and creating designs for shipping container homes for as long as she can remember! Her new home was made from a single 20 foot shipping container and due to its size it doesn’t require any building permission or council consent. If I was building a larger home that requires council consent and I wish I knew more about the application process for a building permit! I wish I knew how to insulate the shipping container, we ended up soldering elements on the walls and then sprayed them with a foam anti-fire insulation. Larry Wade from seacontainercabin, built his shipping container home back in 2010 and in total the home cost around $35,000 USD to build. Everything about building out a container was new to me and there wasn’t any useful info that I could find, so for me I really can’t think of anything that stands out from the rest.
The good thing was that most of the really dinted places would end up being cut out of the containers anyway. The two larger containers are propped up using a 20 foot container which is used for storage.
We did not expect so much wind in the site and are now having to screen off the wind with vegetation as the container makes a bit of noise when there are large gusts of wind. The containers were pre-fabricated off-site then delivered to California before they were re-assembled. The one thing we would have done differently would have been to find one contractor to help the whole process versus having one for getting and modifying the containers, and another to finish out the interior.
Don’t unnecessarily cut the boxes. Also make sure your contractor understands modular or container finishing.
Seth and a team of friends and family spent two years building the home, working in the evenings and weekends. The completed container home contains one bedroom, a bathroom, kitchen, office and living area. Casa Incubo is another great example of a shipping container home which was built in Costa Rica. The home was built using eight 40 foot high cube containers and using containers helped reduce the construction time by around 20%. This shipping container home is one of the first in China and was built by Mads Moller from Aarcgency. The external walls of the containers are lined in bamboo which protects the containers from the natural elements and also provides the containers with insulation. The containers are bolted down into the existing rock and this provides the owners with a gorgeous view overlooking Nederland. These container projects have been for clients who really like containers or have some tangible need that containers provide such as durability.   Certainly the projects that we have been involved in have always been unique. The home was built using three 40 foot and one 20 foot container and even has enough room for Marek’s office when he works from home!


To be honest I don’t really have one thing I wish I knew about shipping containers before I started. Broadmeadow is designed and owned by Christian Salvati from Marengo Structures. This megastructure was built with 27 containers, is Four stories high, and contains 6 apartments. Building with shipping containers can be challenging and the aggravation is still the same as traditional construction, however the costs are reduced. The home was made using a 20 foot shipping container and contains a full kitchen, bathroom, bedroom! That’s a tough question, Tom, one that I don’t have an answer for.   I began modifying shipping containers 10+ years ago. Peter Gill Case, owner of Truth Box, said the windows have been strategically placed to provide maximum daylight whilst using the smallest windows possible.
Finding a balance between good building design and total construction expense is the key to utilizing containers in buildings. The building was built using second hand shipping containers meaning they could keep the cost of construction down! There are countless things that I wish we had known prior to doing our project, but I would say the ONE thing that would have made a big difference would have been to have all of the plumbing chases cut out of the container floors and ceilings to easily run pipe once they were stacked.
Also, the containers sit very tight next to each other and in the design phase we added an additional inch to the width of the foundation just in case they didn’t butt up tight, and in hindsight we should have designed it an inch less for a better drip edge connection. The home spans some 1500 square foot and contains two bedrooms, an office, playroom, kitchen and laundry room. It is definitely worth it to work with someone who has expertise with container structures. The walls of the container are rough and need framing so that your internal walls are flat and smooth.
Normally reefer containers are much more expensive than regular containers which are then insulated.
Hi Tom,You have represented people from different areas and they seems happy with shipping containers.
This is good info and provides great links to design firms but I don’t see anything on how to finance a container build and info is limited online! I have a dog business and purchased two 40′ containers to use for indoor dog play area. Yes definitely- if you don’t do anything else, make sure you properly insulate the containers! I haven’t seen any dog play areas made from shipping containers so this should be really interesting. I am planning a 20×10 container farm house and your thread really has extensive information and appreciate your effort. I think you would definitely need to invest in insulating the container, but this could be either internally or externally… Take a look at our article on insulation and let me know if you still have anymore questions. I’d like to put a container home on my west va property as a weekend hunting lodge, as it would be ideal in terms of security when I lock it up. We are planning a 3200sq ft house in Sheffield, England, as far as I know the first of its kind in this country. I was ready with cash to build a two container home similar to the Savannah project in rural Florida.The county was OK with my idea. I’m looking into building a container home in Australia the design I have in mind has 3 sections, each section is 6 40ft containers (3 side by side and 3 directly on top of them) so totaling 18 40ft containers.
The problem I have is in a few of the section entire sides on both sides of some of the containers will be removed(creating a single room measuring 7.2m(23ft) x 12m(40ft) as the largest room, as the sides are structural are there any references you know of that I can draw on to help with what would be needed to appropriately brace the container to support the weight of the containers on top of it let alone its own weight.
Take it from us—working in a building constructed out of layered shipping containers is remarkably practical, comfortable, and even fun. No one likes the dull, uninspired aesthetics of inexpensive hotel lodgings, but often when traveling on a budget there exists the need for a simple place to lay one’s head, no matter how musty or cramped the space may be.
Basement – when water tables, soil type and bedrock allow, a basement is a good way of making use of more vertical storage and having potential living space. When there is no way to personally inspect the container before making the purchase, ask for high quality photos of the entire structure. Factors that influence this decision are the overall shipping container home plans and design, water tables, soil type, climate, presence of radon, type of bedrock and the entire shipping container cost. However, the tank was initially designed for storage, and the roof is not the best fixed structure when two or more containers are joined. Of course, it is best to try and find someone locally, since the container can be personally inspected before buying. Others have even built entire commercial marine ports out of shipping containers, as well as big company headquarters, student housing and homeless shelters. Many people are also now repurposing shipping containers and unwanted industrial buildings as garden sheds and studios.Inspiration for an eclectic garage and shed in Philadelphia with a gardening shed.


It is based in the Algarve region of Portugal and uses only one 40 foot shipping container which provides over 300 square foot of living space. Larry used two 40 foot shipping containers to make his new home and it features solar panels on the roof which are used to provide electric and heat water.
I can say that the one thing that I wished I had not done was buy my containers without seeing them- I took the company’s word that they would be in good shape.
And I wished I had known that it doesn’t cost that much more for a One-Trip container and they are like brand new. Two 40 foot containers are spread 4 foot apart to create around 800 square foot of open plan living! I wish I had known there were containers available for very little more money that were virtually new… that are in almost pristine condition. I guess the more you know and learn about shipping container homes before you start making decisions will help you to fail less. There is also a 40 foot container located at the rear of the home which contains the guest-house! I am so ready to build my container home here in Arizona but am having trouble finding financing. The containers work like giant building blocks and can be used to create spaces as open or private as you’d like, with interior finish styles ranging in anything from sleek, raw and industrial to polished and traditionally refined.
Flat-pack shipping containers are ideal for use in these projects and so many more, as their 20- and 40-foot spans are structurally sound, arrive in one piece, and often require only solid anchoring and safety railings. Imagine instead that the sprawling Super 8’s and Motel 6’s of the world were replaced by colorful stacks of shipping containers, each containing a compact, bright space with equal the amenties and quadruple the charm of a traditional cheap hotel room. Crawl space – these are useful for a certain amount of extra storage when building a full basement isn’t feasible.
Plasma cutter (right in photo) – these compress air and electricity to such a degree that they melt the metal as they cut. Simply applying a closed-cell foam layer to the inside and outside walls of the building will work wonders for insulating against most problems of heat, cold and moisture. New Generation Builders is a Lakeland, Florida-based company that sells customized, prefabricated storage container homes. This is a good online resource for finding a variety of companies, small and large, where you can find a shipping container for sale. Depending on where it is bought, some containers come with building kits and plans for personal customization. There is a good amount of preparation, construction and tune-up projects necessary for turning a shipping container into a home. It is built using a single shipping container and has various pull-out and fold-down sections to enhance the homes overall size. I have no done projects around here to visit and see how it feels in a container home and from my readings insulating in a later stage start living is a big pain as you need to redo the electrical and sanitary jobs…please advise. For those who want to live in the container as a relocatable solution, Narrowboat internal designs may well prove to be a rich source of ideas.
Hot climates, or at least hot summers, might require reflective paint on the outside of the building.
Cargotecture is a Seattle, Washington-based company building very affordable prefab storage container homes. They have completely decked-out and artistically created shipping container homes for living on or off-the-grid.
Shipping container homes offer offer an extremely sturdy foundation for building an environmentally friendly future. It occurred to me that an alternative to windows might be to use energy efficient TV screens fed from a camera placed on the outside.
Dry wall is often installed to hide the corrugated steel, wiring and foam and give the building a more homelike feel, as well as for added insulation. The recycled use of shipping containers for homes and other buildings symbolizes a pivotal point in our industrial culture.
He’s a big fan of motorbikes and thought the containers’ industrial look would make the perfect garage for his collection.Design ideas for a contemporary garage and shed.
