Approximate Cost To Build A House, Shipping Container Construction Details, Container House Designs - PowerPoint PPT Presentation

  • Uploaded on\n\nApproximate Cost To Build A House, Shipping Container Construction Details, Container House Designs,\n\nA shipping container house is simple way to get a new home. It\'s fast and surprisingly uncomplicated way to build a home. When you buy a shipping container it is already equipped with walls, floor and roof. Most containers also have doors. You need to fashion out some windows and do up the interiors, get the electrical and plumbing work done and you have a ready to occupy home.\n\nEvery week old shipping containers are auctioned or sold at various locations. These containers are no longer of any use as shipping containers because of different reasons but are good enough for conversion to homes and storage units.\n\nEnsure that the containers you have decided to buy aren\'t rusted or damaged in any way. Put in your bid and buy as many containers as you need. The number will of course depend on the planned size of your home, the budget and availability of containers in the configuration you want.\n\nBefore you buy the containers you need to have a basic plan on the type of home you want and how many containers you will need. Containers come in different standard sizes. Some are suitable for living rooms and bedrooms. The smaller one can be converted to kitchens and bathrooms. So once you have basic home design ready, buying the required number and size of containers becomes easy.\n\nOnce you buy the containers you need to make suitable arrangements to transport them. Try and buy locally so you don\'t have to ship the containers long distance which adds to the cost. You will need the service of a crane to place the containers in place at the vacant lot where you plan to have your home. Get the crane to place the containers in the exact position needed as shifting containers is almost impossible to do without the help of these heavy moving equipment.\n\nOnce in place set to work on fashioning out the windows, doing the electrical work, plumbing, laying the flooring and doing up the interiors and any other work needed. You might need insulation as the container on its own is made of high-grade metal which is good conductor of heat and electricity. There is one precaution that you need to take with regard to container homes and that is insulating it against electrical shocks and short-circuit accidents.\n\nA container home is great for the environment and for you as the home come from recycled containers otherwise that have to be disposed and it also works out cheaper for you than building a home from scratch.\n\nFor a detailed review on how to build a shipping container house- please check out the website at\n
