Containerized Homes (Cons and Pros of Storage Container Homes)

Share this post:

Although containerized homes cost often equals or exceed the cost of the traditional house there are a few advantages that a lot of people really like.

Storage containers are made with COR-TEN steel, which is a weathering steel that can withstand harsh weather conditions, earthquakes, and elements like salty ocean water. The rust on this weathering steel creates a protective patina to keep it strong, whereas rust on mild steel would actually eat the steel up significantly weakening it.

Containerized homes face virtually no termite problems or wood rotting which are pretty common in many states. 

We often forget about bad things that can happen. Unfortunately, in many parts of the World and even in some areas in the US the famous saying “My Home is My Fortress” should be put first in the list of building requirements.  Storage container homes with entry doors made of steel can protect your family and belongings far better than any traditional structure.
