Container Homes are inexpensive to purchase and cheap to run due to compact size and well fitted insulation.
Container homes come with next generation sustainable insulation as standard making them a cosy place to live in all weather conditions and parts of the world. These homes can be adjusted to customer’s taste and various features can be added based on customer’s wants and needs.
We can offer to power the off-grid container homes using solar panel to charge batteries. To make sure that these container homes could be used everywhere, we also offer a small backup generator for countries where sun is not sufficient enough to power the solar panels.
Container homes can be quickly relocated when the owner decides to move.

Though many additional features can be added during the process of arranging the container, the following features and appliances come as standard:
