Know about the basics of Shipping Container Homes


 
Travel & Tourism
Today for building needs more and more people are turning to container architecture as Steel shipping containers are quite convenient, eco-friendly raw building material, affordable and are simple.

In Canada By flatbed truck and trailer you have them delivered to your site just order the number of units you need, after that construction begins.

Shipping container home

To conventional buildings, shipping container homes also called storage container homes offer a sustainable, fast and green approach. These steel containers are standardized, durable and easy to transport because they are built in a factory-controlled setting.

Since the product is manufactured, pre-fitted for installation, and structurally sound, home building crews get the most savings in time and materials. The cost of labour and materials can sometimes be comparable in cost to a traditional stick build because still this is a new industry.

Know about the cost of a container home

Depending on the size, condition and age shipping containers in Canada costs about $1,400 to $4,000. Additionally, the, the more you are going to pay the more add-on’s or customized features you choose. Just like a traditional build, in contractor fees features like plumbing,electricity,windows, and floors will cost you anywhere from $50 to $150 per hour.

Some factors on which impact cost include:

• Permits –Based on your area and types of permits required cost will vary • Site prep –What will increase the cost is the rocky foundation and uneven or prone to flooding • Delivery –By number of units to be delivered and distance travelled the price varies • Availability -available stock will affect price as most containers ship directly from China (known as one-trippers $150,000 to $175,000 is the range for a large house built from shipping containers in Canada that for a conventional home is about half the price of per square foot.

On the other hand for low as $10,000, those who are experienced with construction can finish and furnish a shipping container home. For even less than $4,000 some handy folks even manage to do it! Just there is a basic container home and there are no bells and whistles.

Process of the building

Before shipping containers or trailer containers in Canada are move-in ready there is a good amount of final touch-ups, construction and preparation needed. Cutting frames for windows and doors, setting a foundation, insulating, installing utilities and adding a flooring and roof are involved.

Basic steps of the construction process are as follows:

• Cost –Including any necessary permits before starting construction always find out the legal requirements of your property. To budget appropriately get an accurate estimate of the cost per square foot. • Planning – You can design the elevation, floor plan and any conceptual. • Construction –off-site reinforcement/fabrication and on-site preparations can be started. • Delivery –Site placement for containers should be coordinated.

• Retrofitting – Set the interior framing, foundation, drywall and insulation, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, and any additional features.

The total construction process from start to finish is about 30% faster than a conventional build is because of the speed and ease with which the shipping containers are ordered, prefabricated, and installed.
