Why Container Homes?

Quick Build Times

Quick Build Times

At a fraction of the cost

A Costa Rica container home can be built in 90 days. It may not cost less to build than a house of conventional materials. We will build and customize it off-site, and then deliver it move-in-ready to your land. Once completed you can live in your tiny home, and if you want, build your dream home on the same property.

Off-Grid Ready

Off-Grid Ready

Easily converted to self-sufficiency

If you are contemplating off-grid living, a tiny Costa Rica container home is easier to customize with solar panels and water supply than is a traditional home. Everything from the electrical wiring to the plumbing is easily adaptable to a solar panel system, rain catchment, and battery backups and cisterns.

Low Maintenance

Low Maintenance

Environmentally friendly homes

A tiny home won’t cost much less to build, but less to maintain. Containers are built to withstand extreme cold and extreme heat – everything from rain to snow to sleet. They are earthquake- and hurricane-proof. Tiny homes are environmentally friendly. They leave a smaller footprint, and do less harm to nature.
