Modern Container Home

Modern Container Home

The Modern Container Home is the biggest standard unit and combines elements of modular building with traditional building methods. The cleverly designed container home gives you best of both worlds with open living spaces and loads of privacy. The design encourages outdoor dwelling as well, and is more of a permanent solution for someone who wants to settle down in a smaller dwelling. This type of container home is perfect for small developments, sea property, studio apartments and even old age home developments.
