Container Homes – The New Living Trend
Welcome to New Living, the exciting alternative to conventional building methods like bricks and mortar and prefab homes using modular building techniques like shipping container homes. We strive to offer the South African market an exciting, affordable and beautiful way of building their homes. We specialise in converting shipping containers, and combining it with light steel framework to come up with creative designs that can be built anywhere in South Africa.
When you take the big step of building your own home, it’s always comforting to know that you are dealing with a company that can assist you from A – Z. For this reason New Living created a few packaged options which we refer to as Standard Designs. Container homes are perfect for weekend homes, holiday homes, granny flats, work-from-home offices and communal living spaces. These designs can be bought off plan, which makes your decision process easy.
We also understand the complexities of building regulations, financing, local council, permits, and all the rest. You can rest assured when you work with us, we will hold your hand from beginning to end, until you are a proud owner of a unique and beautiful new living space.
Of course there are always the option to work with us on your customised design. We have partnered with The Fresh Lab, an architect company renowned for it’s green and innovative designs across South Africa. We will assist you with creating your dream home, using alternative building methods that won’t break the bank.
Lastly it’s important to note that currently banks are not eager to give home loans to customers that are looking to build shipping container homes. If you are interested in pursuing this as an option for your home, you need to be able to build cash, or secure a personal loan.
