Container homes- Then and now

Back in time, all people truly cared about was to build one of the most lavish homes and live in it. Then, one fine day, came container homes which were built from durable, stack-able, strong, movable, cut-able, modular and most importantly affordable container homes. Architects have built several containers down the line, meeting requirements like of schools, offices, apartments, artists' studios and so on wherein, they have been able to include swimming pools too!

Phillip C. Clark filed for a United States patent on November 23, 1987 described as "Method for converting one or more steel shipping containers into a habitable building at a building site and the product thereof". This patent was granted August 8, 1989 as patent 4854094. (Wikipedia) 

container homes also started being dissolved by the US Army for it's durability and reliability, keeping the things in it safe and secure and waterproof too!

Then, came the Gulf War in 1991 wherein, containers developed into a place where prisoners of war would be transported. Holes were cut out for ventilation and were also used as military shelters. They started adding sandbags to the walls of the shipping container to create another layer of protection against grenades, guns and so on.

One of the most affordable container homes are shipped to North America from Asia- the ones coming from Europe were considered to be extremely expensive without any reason.
In fact, it's a great option to opt for shipping container homes in India rather than, opting for outsourcing used containers due to multiple defects like rust.

21st century container homes are dazzling today and considered to be the in- thing.

  • This is due to multiple reasons like:
  • affordability, time saving
  • efficient in nature
  • keeping customizations in mind
  • sustainable in nature
  • easy to build and more

Also, container houses have no limits- you build a school with it or, a restaurant or, swimming pools, there's no limit to what can be a part of container homes.

Unlike the olden times, container homes are now easy to maintain and are accepted by all at once! In fact, it's a great way to show your artistic side with the amazing customization or, variations you can create for your dream home.

5 Points to be kept in mind before buying a container house under 100k

Haters are gonna hate but, you must go on! Yes, many may say how not- so- great- an- idea it is to build yourself a container house. But, it's the in- thing, probably forever! It's one of the most eco- friendly houses in Bangalore and are efficient, affordable homes which are available in no time and you don't have to put too much effort in it too! However, keep in mind 5 points before buying your shipping container home under 100k:

Build a container home post looking into the location: Sometimes, people who want to build containers forget the fact that it might be a task for builders to transport your shipping container homes. It's a nightmare if your container cannot be shipped at your location due to issues like space. Pick a location or design which can fit through the route of your container house. Save up money by not renting out trucks

Container homes under 100k

Low budget containers: Assuming your budget of building a container prefab homes under 100k, avoid going for a fresh container. There are several shipping container homes which can be recycled and are in great condition- all you have to do is, see it for yourself, look out for glitches like rusts, molds and so on. If you cannot go look at one yourself, look out for a source which is trustworthy and buy your shipping container home. Or, if you choose to opt for a new container home, you can always change the layout, design and so on. It'll become less expensive than before
Don't cut containers too much: Maintain your container's structural integrity by not cutting them down too much. Remember, container homes are made from steel- cutting steel is very expensive and is a wastage too! It does not make sense to make your home smaller- keep it spacious, keep it big!

Plan out your container- don't rush into it: It should be a dream for you- to build an affordable container home. If you do not believe in your dream, you're got going to be able to achieve it! Yes, containers can be hard but, they're beautiful, customized homes with energy- efficiency too. Make a rough sketch of what you want- the design and this and that and then go to a great architect!

Think about the budget: Money makes things happen. However, if you choose a good contractor, builder, and architect, you can definitely save up on a lot. Once the container is built, don't worry, the maintenance, insulation and other costs are little or nothing!

There are several other things you need to look into like the location you're living in- if it's always raining there and moist since forever, it's definitely not the destination you want to build a container house and so on. 

It's all about what you want from your container and whether you're getting it. However, container homes are the best- it's lie living in a box!

How Financing Prefabricated Houses Work

The first and foremost thing you must do before looking into the land, the designs and so on is to know exactly what your budget is. Once you're away of the number you are comfortable with, the next step comes up- finding financing. 2 ways come under finding financing- one being, self-financing or financing via a lending institution.

Self- financing- It's the cheapest and simplest way to make things work just for you. But, most of us, the common people do not have money in their bank accounts or at home. However, you still want to build yourself wonderful prefabricated homes India. You can also go for the option to take out money out of mortgages on your existing home or opting for a housing loan.

Lending institutions- It's usually the 2nd option we all would probably go for. Here, you can take a loan of the required amount from lending institutions like a credit union or a bank! You won't be sanctioned a loan from the bank until they're confident about the fact you are capable of paying them back the amount with time. Learn more by doing enough research about mortgaging and taking up bank loans!

Know more and understand mortgages- Taking out a mortgage is like taking a loan from the bank and using your very own home as a collateral. That way, if, for instance, you are unable to pay back the bank the amount, the bank shall minimize your losses by taking away that part of your land then, selling it off! 

Be smart, make sure your savings are good enough to build yourself your dream eco- friendly homes in Bangalore, India- the IT hub of India. Bangalore is just the right choice you can settle down in because of it's weather, employment opportunities and so on. Wooden homes Bangalore, shipping container homes are other affordable homes you can go for. Or, you can mortgage out your home or go for home loans! However, it's always the best to mortgage out a part of your home or have enough funds to build yourself your home. Taking loans is like being at the gun point at all times- terrible!

Prefabricated Homes VS Manufactured Homes

Here The difference between prefabricated homes and manufactured homes:

When it comes to different kinds of houses, there can be confusions with regard to what kind must be built. We're here to give you clarity with regard to manufactured and prefab homes. 

Prefabricated homes:

Prefabricated homes or houses are casually called prefab homes. When it comes to prefab homes, most of the work is don off- site, preventing pollution to a great extent. When it comes to prefab building, there are several homes which come under it- wooden homes, container homes, prefab cottages and more! It's cheaper to build these homes as there's no wastage of materials, there's not much labor cost and time consumed. Above all, prefab building take care of everything- the plumbing, attachment of cabinets, sinks and more- everything is done by your prefab home builder. They have their own reasons like- the connections may have to be done prior to the set- up. This implies less money being spent from your wallet!

Manufactured homes are also built off- site- no construction takes place on- site. They mostly build steel structures homes, steel frames which are shipped on their wheels. Also, these homes don't age very soon and are open to any maintenance problems and are considered to be like a house arrest sort of a scenario if you plan on living in it!

The difference:

Building codes- Prefabricated homes have to go through multiple quality checks before they're open for their customers to live in. On the other hand, manufactured homes have a very lenient HUD checks, which cannot be trusted much

Building limitations:

Prefab building is very diverse, creative, customizable to any extent. However, manufactured homes have not developed too that extent- they're still limited, stuck with the basics


Prefab homes concentrate on styling with sustainability, biggest example being wooden homes! They're lovely to look at and eco- friendly too. Manufactured homes haven't even reached close to that


FEMA says that prefab homes stand very well in extreme weather conditions. Manufactured homes are built with factory precision using 25% extra material in comparison to prefab homes

To be honest, prefabricated houses are just the right homes to be built in today's time- they're eco- friendly, unique and customizable homes with a lot more within it. What more do you need? Above all, they are affordable homes, saving a lot of space to build more prefabricated homes in Bangalore and other cities in India.

How To Build Shipping Container Homes in Less Money

One of the major reasons behind why people prefer building shipping container homes over the rest because they can b built at the cheapest rates- it's like, you can even build container homes under 50k!

However, it's not about the money! There are several other reasons behind why you must move to a shipping container home right away like, they're eco- friendly homes and more!

If you want to learn how to build yourself a sassy home as well as save you money, here's all you need to do-

1. Plan things out: 

It's crucial for you to plan out your container house's construction. Especially, when you have a tight budget with great expectations, you must plan things out. If not, how will you know the progress and expenses while building your dream home? In the end, you'll be clueless! You need to look into 2 key factors while building yourself your container home-
Planning out your budget- Know how much money you can afford to spend on your new home
Have clarity with regard to what you need to be built- For instance, how many bedrooms do you need?
Only thorough planning will help you succeed in planning and building your container house under 10k.

2. Try not making major or silly mistakes:

Losing money is easy but, earning money is the hard part! Making silly mistakes like removing more steel than required from your container during modification is way beyond silly! You know why? Because, people who do so, lack planning and basic idea about container homes- they just give a shot in the air and obviously, it doesn't work out! 
Guess what, there's nothing worse than wasting materials and money in a low budget container prefab homes- it's just sad.

3. Which are the cheapest containers for building?

The very purchasing of the container is the most expensive investment of all. What if you would buy a used container home? It's definitely a great idea- unless, you check the container yourself and make sure everything's okay! 

However, it's definitely the best option to buy a new container home as it's unused- kept out of trouble! Look into it and, choose whatever you wish to.

4. Cautious expenditure of money: 

Remember, never try to save money on structural components! Building materials for the roof for instance, can be like metal to reduce maintenance costs! Also, the paints you choose, the decor and so on determine your expenses.

5. Use home materials: 

Well, for instance, prefabricated houses in India or wooden homes will be great for India  just like container homes because the raw materials available here are very affordable and from home- there's no importing of materials happening, making it affordable! If the case was Vice-Versa, the transportation fee, currency amount and so on are going to make the amount 3* more than the home materials!

6. Keep track of every Rupee you spend: 

Remember to have a spreadsheet and o not forget to update it each time you buy something with regard to your container house! If you do not do so, expect unexpected expenses as you will not have track of the money you have and you've actually spent!

Save money, build yourself your container house in under 50k and see how beautiful it turns out! It's worth the shot, definitely.

    • Research with regard to soil
    • Conduction of a perc test


The Pre- Set Day phase:

While your prefabricated house is being constructed off- site by your builder, manufacturer, your GC crew will be working towards preparation of the delivery of your home and for the set- up process. There's a lot to work on which your builder shall tell you about.
  • Clearly marking out your property boundaries
  • The level of the build area
  • Clearing out the building area by getting rid of plants, trees or large rocks too
  • Three weeks before the set- up day arrives:
  • Designation and clearance of an are for an unpaved driveway for trucks and other vehicles to come in and for the usage of the crane
  • Digging of the foundation of your prefabricated house is done and any other on- site projects are taken care of like a porch or garage
  • Two weeks before the set- up day arrives:
  • Installation of the foundation
  • Installation of electric, plumbing, gas and several other things which will have to run through your prefab home's foundation
  • Inspection of the foundation
  • Fixing things before the next step as it'll be very expensive for you to fix things underneath post your prefab home set- up
  • One week before the set- up day:
  • Installation of footing drains
  • Installation of a sill plate
  • Pouring the foundation
  • Another inspection of the foundation
  • Waterproofing test
  • Drainage test

The Post Set- Day Time Phase:

Now that all's okay, the home's been delivered set- up and so on, it's time to make sure your prefabricated houses work as fully functioning homes. Even prefab homes need a bit of on- site work. Follow this timeline which may vary from one home to another:

First-week post set- up:

  • Weatherproofing of your prefab home
  • Begin working on exterior aspects of your prefab homes like garages, porches
  • Getting rid of temporary framing
  • Connection of utilities between modules
  • Building basement stairs
  • Second-week post set- up:
  • Connection of utilities to the grid

Top 3 Major Challenges Faced by Prefabricated Homes

Although, prefabricated homes are just the right choice for each and every household to switch to, there are several issues faced by this product. Yes, it has room for customization, there are several types of prefab homes like container homes, wooden homes and so on. However, somewhere down the line, the world is not being able to see it's beauty- how beneficial it is to build wooden homes all across the globe, for instance and so on.

In this blog, we're going to face major challenges faced by prefab home builders and how we can possibly overcome them.

1. Lack of consumer awareness:

How many of you even knew the fact that a term called 'prefab homes' existed all this time? Barely any in countries like India and so on. That's the point. Prefab homes are the best we have right now in the construction industry. Why not inspire all or make them away of the idea? This housing style has been in existence since a long time now. Yet, countries like India are still struggling to own prefabricated houses in India. AS builders, you must make your audience aware of the beauty of prefab homes. Tell them this-
  1. Prefabricated houses are eco- friendly houses. Why not build eco- friendly houses in India?
  2. They're well- insulated and ventilated and are very durable too. In fact, they can overcome hurricanes too
  3. There's room for customization at cheap rates
  4. Prefab homes do not take much time to be set up. In fact, they go through 35+ quality checks, making sure you live safe, unlike conventional homes
  5. Container homes, wooden homes and so on are a few types one can choose from. They're unique and not too space consuming, saving up huge costs like that of land and building
  6. They're energy- efficient homes which are very cozy!
  7. What more do you need? Affordability, aesthetic finishes and eco- friendliness.

2. Solves space constraints in larger cities: 

Take India, for instance. Prefabricated houses in Bangalore are just perfect! Reasons being, they solve major issues like that of space available, pollution and so on. In fact, with prefab building, you can build spacious homes with space left outside for a small pool or playground too! Above all, they are affordable and do not take much time to be set up. Also, they resolve the problem of pollution and wastage to a great extent!

3. Perks of prefab building: 

Not only variety comes in the picture but, several other perks come wit prefab construction. Container homes are built from recycled cargoes, preventing major wastage of steel and several other materials. Also, wooden homes make sure old trees are cut down, which provide with little oxygen. Instead, new trees are planted. Also, since most of the work is done off- site, pollution and wastage of raw materials are preventing, making sure you pay less even though, your home is customized. Above all, it works towards sustainable development, making this world a better place to live in.

Build your dream home using prefab construction, see the change in you and the coming generations. Remember, it starts from you. So, inspire all!

How To Build A Prefabricated House

The most overlooked advantage of prefab building is how quickly a home can be open for the client to live in. Usually, it takes about 6 weeks to complete a full- fledged prefabricated home. However, it completely depends upon the infrastructure of the modular home- how big, complicated it is and so on. 

This doesn't mean that your home will be open for you to live in within 6 weeks. Here's a list of tasks you need to fulfill before actually beginning with the construction of the house. 

Phase 1 – Planning – takes about 1-2 months

Getting financing- There are a lot of things you need to do with-in this one task. Things like getting a prequalified estimate, comparing rates, applying for loans, etc., getting approval, setting up a disbursement schedule, closing your loan and so on come into the picture. You need to do a great amount of research as to how much can you spend or how much will your loan approximately come down to, the interest rates of each bank for a home loan, which one to choose, which one not to, etc. Also, once all that is decided upon, closing the loan comes into the picture. It's a complex matter to think about. However, it's the most simple way to put it across to you. Just be clear about the funds!

Finding land- Next on, comes finding the right location. Think carefully, ask yourself and your family several questions like where they would like to live, the facilities around, locality, availability of schools, other individuals and so on. Also, try not picking up a location which is too far from your workplace or school- it's going to create major transportation issues and fuel issues, if you have a car. Try looking out for a safe locality with kids around- it brings in charm and chirpiness, keeping your life very lively and interactive. 

Getting building permits- Another major and technical task- you need to be very careful, if you miss out on even one permit, your house will not be permitted to be set- up. These permits have a very simple yet, important aim- to help you live safe and legal. Every country has it's own building permits so, do enough research or, choose the right builder who helps you out with the official bit. 

Picking a general contractor- As I mentioned earlier, the greater the contractor, the better and easier it gets to build you your home. The 'before prefab homes construction' bit is a lot more complicated for you than the latter. It's fun once it's done because of the designing, customization, etc.

Due diligence on your land-Remember, some diligence on the property is a must! Or else, get ready for some nasty surprises popping up. The kind of soil you're building your home, partial ownership rights and so on need to be looked into before going any further.

Designing your home- The fun part- design your dream home with your designer and come up with the most unique prefab home, your very own dream home, ever!

Phase 2 – Manufacture and Site Preparation – Up to 6 weeks

Manufacturing of your home- The least worrying bit for you is the manufacturing process. Most of the work is done off- site. The houses are built in factories with the help of professionals so, it's all going to be crisp!
Preparing your land for construction- This is the part where you must focus upon the energy put on your land- this helps you prep the site so that your house can be delivered at it's destination on time! 
Pouring the foundation- This is the foundation on which your house is going to get laid out on. You need to be about which material it is. 

Phase 3 – Construction – Another 6 weeks

Delivery and set of the modules- The home is finally delivered at it's destination. However, there's some more to do- the setting up of the home, unloading of the parts and so on. The time taken varies from the size of the prefabricated house.
Buttoning up- Finally, the manufacturer's job is over. Tasks, like repairing the shipping damages interior finishing, connecting the modules and finishing the unfinished area, comes into the picture!
Inspections- Here, your house needs to go through multiple quality checks just to make sure that you live a safe life!

There are several prefabricated homes builders and architects and so on who work hand in hand just to help you build you your dream home. All you need to do is plan out your bit and do enough research over it!

Why FEMA Says Prefabricated Homes Are Safer

Till date, no manufacturer has dared to say or prove that their homes are extremely durable- durable to a level where they would label their homes as 'hurricane- proof' except prefabricated homes. Time and again prefabricated houses have proven their point of being capable of withstanding extreme weather conditions way better than site- built homes do. 

FEMA has constantly praised prefabricated construction for the soundest workmanship, dating back to a report in the year 1993. 

Quality Workmanship:

What if airplanes were not built with the standard parts in the factories by professionals? Would you trust it to a level where you would be able to fly in a plane? Prefabricated manufacturing also holds a similar case- would you want to live in a home which possibly may be unsafe? 

The beauty of modern prefabricated homes is that it's rigorous quality control with regard to the house, the materials used and so on is amazing. Most of the work is done off- site i.e. in factories so, there's no worry with regard to it being subpar! The seals on the roof of your home is done by a professional who is great at it's job- to build roofs, all day long. He has all the accessibility with regard to the best tools, training, experience and so on which would help him do his job a lot more than perfectly each time! This, in fact, is true for each step while building modular homes.

A report cited that due to inadequate design, misapplication of several building materials and substandard workmanship has led to damaging of many residential structures.

All thanks to off- site construction, there shall never be an issue for one to contribute in building your home in a very durable manner irrespective of his knowledge, design or skills.


Here's a fact- prefabricated houses are inspected at each step of it's construction process. The local and state inspectors also do their job but the builders know and care for you! Site- built homes are taken for granted and not inspected as often as modular homes- maybe that's why they're falling off each time an earthquake occurs!

Site- built homes have just one inspection when the home is completed! Several states do not even care about this very essential task and let go off the inspection step. Also, this one and only step is in- charge of checking each part of the house from the roof, to the basement, to the plumbing and so on. With prefabricated cabins, a specialized inspection occurs at each step of the construction process. They ain't mandatory by the government however, the manufacturers out there truly care about their client and make sure they do everything they can in their power to help the client live safe. In the end, just the way site- built homes have an inspection, prefab homes India or any other country will have a final inspection.

The building design:

Here's a FEMA report for you- it has been stated that minimal constructional damage has been noted in prefabricated housing developments. The modular style of construction provides an “inherently rigid system!” In spite of the 131- 155 mph winds of a category 4 storm, FEMA has reported that modular houses have performed greatly in comparison to the conventional homes.  

Bottom line being, it's the style of construction that has made prefabricated housing a class apart.
