One of the key benefits to using a shipping container is that it already comes with walls floors and a roof! With the help of architects and designers you can look to combine multiple containers into a single dwelling - through appropriate planning and design windows doors and fascias are added to make the finished product resemble something more akin to a modern house.
You can currently pick up a used container for around $1500USD. That`s a base price of $1500USD for 305sq feet of floorspace. Not bad when you compare it to the price of more traditional forms of construction. So to conclude this point used container homes are much more economical to build than more conventional building methods. Eco-Friendly (Green Living) So how green can shipping container living be? The answer: They can be as green as you want them to be. If you want to go down the truly green route then think of your home more as an `eco-pod`. You could produce your own energy by putting a few solar panels on the roof. You can use hydro if you`re close to a river or fast-flowing stream.
Another factor that will help the modifications to be made is the house`s final blueprint. When it comes to modifications there are a lot of ides you could think of. These include going for installing solar panels or you may prefer soy-based insulation or better yet choose eco-friendly amenities.

There are so many ideas on how you can modify your place but the lesser the modifications to do the easier the whole construction will be plus you won`t worry about going over your allotted construction budget.
