  1. You should move to a container home, only after considering the benefits and disadvantages of doing so.

    Benefits of moving to a container home

    • Container homes are strong and durable, and therefore resistant to issues like rot and insect infestation.
    • The price for the acquisition of a shipping container that can then be modeled into a home is far lower than what it would cost to build or buy a conventional home.

    Disadvantages ofmoving to a container home

    • Containers are usually small compared to standard homes and may therefore offer less living space. Some innovative builders have found ways to merge and expand them, though.
    • Larger container home construction often incurs extra costs for specialized equipment.
