Going for storage container home
« on: February 12, 2019, 05:00:14 AM »
I've been doing a lot of research for the past few years and I am pretty set on building a shipping container home. The advantages of a shipping container house are because they are all metal and so fire danger is minimized. No need to spend extra money on roofing.
There is also very low exterior maintenance required for shipping container homes. High level of security. I plan on using the door and window cutouts as metal shutters which will be secured from the inside. The only way in when I'm not home would be the main entry door. This would also help mitigate fire danger.
The only downside is they can be a bit ugly although I have seen many done up in different styles that look quite nice. They will require good insulation but that would hold true for any type of construction.
Just wondering if anyone here has built a storage container home and what are your thoughts on it?
