Container Homes Vs Traditional Bricks-and-Mortar?
For many people in the UK, it is now almost impossible to get a foot onto the property ladder. Prices are at an all-time high and mortgage lenders are demanding larger deposits. In this climate, it is not hard to understand why cargo container homes are now a more-and-more popular choice.
Inside Shipping Container Homes
Modular container homes are innovative spaces, suited to different lifestyles, capacity and needs. Shipping containers are like ‘Lego’ bricks; they can be stacked, linked or re-modelled to any size / configuration. From tiny homes to ambitious builds, modified shipping containers offer many possibilities. Container home plans can be as simple or as sophisticated as required; accommodate a single person in a one bedroom flat, or a large family in a complex arrangement. Just take a quick look online to see examples of exciting luxury container homes.
Eco Benefits of Recycling Containers for Homes
At a time when we are thinking a lot more about resources and energy efficiency, converting storage containers into sustainable, modern and stylish homes is an attractive prospect. Made from recycled materials, cargo container homes are an eco-friendly and ethical decision.
The Cost of Building a Home out of Shipping Containers
Cargo container homes are a creative solution to the chronic lack of housing in this country. They are quick to build and offer comfortable living, all at a fraction of the cost of traditional builds. Construction and maintenance expenditure is significantly lower.
Building a Home out of Shipping Containers; Cost Benefits
Cheap container homes are also an extremely cost-effective option for housing authorities and the social care sector. Renovated shipping container homes are an ideal choice for vulnerable people, including homeless, elderly, disabled and low income residents. They also offer, at a great price, independent living space at private homes. For instance, for teenagers, guests and relatives. For businesses, container home designs are also suitable for on-site staff accommodation, offices and workshops.
Permissions for Cargo Container Homes
Perhaps one of the greatest advantages of building a home from shipping containers is that, in a country where available land is scarce, they can be designed to fit in to just about anywhere! Cargo container homes work in small, awkwardly-shaped spaces and plots unsuitable for brick-built dwellings. Planning permission is usually straightforward and often unnecessary. However, as rules vary throughout the country, it is advised to check with the local planning authority (LPA).
