Shipping Container Homes

Shipping Container Homes

Shipping container homes are a stylish, affordable housing solution whether you are looking for a temporary accommodation solution or a long-term home. Container houses/homes are cheaper to buy and run than a park home or building a home from brick. Container homes can be commissioned very quickly – we can move from commission to delivery in an agreeable time frame.

If you want to move, they are portable and completely self-contained, making relocating easy. You will not be compromising on security, because our steel anti vandal units are vandal-proof and can be fitted with the same standard of locks and burglar alarms as any other home.

There is much more to container homes than a steel box with windows. They are a stylish, modern and green alternative to traditional house building methods.

Our shipping container homes are:

  • Available at an agreed time
  • Convenient
  • High quality
  • Flexible
  • Cost effective
  • Used or brand new
  • Usually available without planning permission (would require confirmation from local Council)

Container Housing Units

Our container housing units are completely bespoke and can be produced in 8ft, 10ft, 20ft, and 40ft long. They are beautifully crafted units that are designed to meet your exact standards, and can be built to Building Control Regulations if required. They come fitted with toilet, shower, sleeping, cooking and eating areas, at affordable prices.

They are also modular allowing you to add more units as and when you need them.

Design Your Own Dream Home

You can get involved in the design as little or as much as you like. Our team are ready to work with you to create something to your own specifications and materials, or you can choose one of our tried and tested designs. Whichever option you choose, you will find a wide range of options, finishes, fittings and functions to create shipping container homes.

No Need To Live In A Caravan During A Self Build

Our shipping container homes are ideal for building sites where accommodation is required. If you are rebuilding your home or carrying out extensive refurbishment then purpose built shipping container homes are the solution to sleeping in a caravan or staying in a B&B. Portable and flexible, you can even convert it to a granny annexe or summerhouse once the work is finished and you move back in.
