Shipping Container Homes Wrong Idea?

I keep hearing people saying how bad the idea is for shipping container homes due to cost of moving the units as well as the space but is it really?

In reality a shipping container home can be built modular and with a small skill base, no architect, no builders, no big expenses so why is it wrong?

When you have bugs who do you call? Get the yellow pages!

When you want chicken for dinner do you go to the farmer next door or the supermarket?

These are reasons why shipping container homes are shunned upon because it breaks the consumerism barrier where your told you have to do something instead of thinking about how can I do it.

A shipping container home gives not only opportunity and a home but freedom and although you make have a bit of a pitched battle going on to get it sited its worth it.

When I look at costs of construction and mortgages its very quick to see that you can save 1/3rd if not more on cost because you reducing labour as well as being able to do it in affordable stages.

I have an added advantage of fighting the corner of the shipping container home movement in that I do have an internet troll with nothing better to do than be negative. Odd thing about shipping container homes is I have yet to meet anyone who built one that said it was a bad or wrong idea. Why? because normally they are debt free because they did most of the work themselves.

Living in a shipping container home

I hear it so often here that nobody wants to or would live in a shipping container home but I ask you “would you?”

For a start its economical if your renting or even buying purely on the structures size. Then the fact the structure is already constructed in basic form before you start cutting and adding you already have a roof over your head.

But on top of that lets think anti-consumerism its a small space are you going to think twice about anything you buy? the answer will be yes as the first thought is where to put it. In reality your cutting the consumerism trend and becoming more in control of your life. The western world wastes a huge amount of resources and money on stuff they don’t need and often never even use. Living in a container every bit of space has consideration and consequences if given up.

Living in a shipping container home can offer freedom that many people can’t even see that they have removed. Cut consumerism, cut costs it all equals a better quality of life.
