The structure of the home is already built, the roof, walls, and ceiling are completed; all you have to add are the interior details, which can take a considerable amount of time off of the building process.
Container homes can also be built off-site. This decreases build time because there is no travel to and from the building site and all supplies and equipment are readily available and do not have to be shipped to the building site. This is especially beneficial if you are looking to build on a remote site. Off-site building for a remote location can not only mean that your home ready to go quicker, but it can reduce costs as transport of materials and equipment can be costly.
Shipping containers are meant to be moved, this means that there already exists a worldwide system for transporting container houses across both land and sea. Once your home is completed you can basically have it moved anywhere in the country, or even the world!
If you have already dreamed about living in a remote location, or off-grid, a container home can make that happen! There are many locations that may not be accessible for a construction crew and all the equipment necessary to build a home. Through off-site building storage container houses can open up a number of locations you might not have thought possible to have a home!
With the capability of moving your home if you were in the position of relocating, instead of finding suitable housing, you only need to find a spot of land to put your container home on!
When it comes to the interior finishes and customization of your container house, the possibilities are endless! At Cross Container Homes we have container home plans available. These plans can be tweaked or changed to suit your personal needs. Or you can work with one of our designers to develop your own plan that meets your every need.
