Why Container Homes?

Quick Build Times

Quick Build Times

At a fraction of the cost

A container home can be built quickly. It can cost less to build than a house built of conventional materials. We will build and customize it off-site, and then deliver it to your land ready to move in. 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-the-grid living, a tiny container home is far 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 even battery backups and cisterns.

Low Maintenance

Low Maintenance

Environmentally friendly homes

A tiny home costs less to build, and less to maintain. Containers are built to withstand extreme cold and extreme heat, and 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.
