A Novel Approach to Affordable Housing

Shipping Container Homes with Linked Equipment

Sustainable, affordable housing solutions have eluded city and state governments for decades. As the number of affordable units in cities declines, the importance of addressing this challenge increases. To complicate the matter, as the problem grows, available urban space and government budgets are shrinking. Shipping containers can be turned into fully-functional, aesthetically pleasing affordable housing. Local civic and political leaders should begin exploring this as a cost-effective alternative to traditional solutions. If they do not, they risk continuing to lose their people to more rural areas, or worse, to homelessness.

Cost-Effective and Time-Efficient

Refurbished, converted shipping containers cost a fraction of the price of constructing buildings from the ground up. It is also faster to build affordable housing units this way. This “quick to market” option provides a safe solution to a city’s most vulnerable citizens in a faster and less expensive manner.

Space-Saving and Mobile

Urban areas are running out of space for new construction. Because refurbished shipping containers have a smaller footprint, city planners can explore different configurations – both vertically and horizontally – to use the space available to the city. In addition, as space opens up in different areas of the city, the units are easily portable and can be moved if a more attractive and practical location is found for them.

Fully Customizable

Repurposed shipping containers provide a tremendous opportunity to customize both the interiors and exterior. Governments can choose how many rooms different units need and also determine if there is a need for common areas and office space. Clients can also choose finishes and paint colors. These options make converted units an excellent choice for both large and small cities.
