With property prices climbing and land space getting smaller, shipping container homes can be a cost effective and environmentally friendly housing solution. Popular amongst minimalists and those just looking to cut down their expenses, container homes can be completely transformed to include every amenity of a full-sized house including shower, toilet, kitchen and full electrical outfitting. It can also be a great opportunity for those looking to get into the property market, acting like a stepping stone for people to get out of the rental cycle. Better still, you’re not limited to the space or what you can afford at the time. As your budget or need for space increases, you can add onto your existing space and expand as much as you desire. Shipping containers are highly durable, secure, and stackable. You’ll find yourself in your new container home in no time, especially compared to the time it takes to finish a traditional build home.

Whether the in-laws are moving in, or your young-adult children need some personal space, converting a shipping container into a granny flat can be endlessly useful. It could also be a great opportunity to earn a little extra money on the side as it could potentially be rented out as a vacation property to travellers.
