Container House

Concept of a shipping container house Red shipping container for building
Buying or trying to build your home can be costly in Jamaica or anywhere in the world. However, there’re many institutions that provide many suggested ways to reduce the cost for construction; but It seems not to work. Also, many construction companies in Jamaica are reluctant to build homes for a lesser cost or they state that it would not be profitable to build homes that are less than say 3 million and the current market price for homes are at an average 6 million and above for 1 - 2 bedroom homes. The question many have or may have asked "Can minimum wage workers afford these valued homes?" The answer would be No. So, why then can developers be more innovative to come up with more cost effective ways or methods of building homes at a lesser cost to live?
In USA, Architects are working or prevailing in methods to reduce cost of homes and making it safer for living. However, Jamaica is a third world country and not a first world country base on economic, size and production. Why is it that we on a hold try to be more valiant to find new methods to build homes for everyone in our country?
Nufield Services or Floyd Bromfield is out on a venture to find out how can we build homes for the future at a lesser cost that is strong, safe, comfortable and livable. So, then let’s start the discussion.....
Have you ever thought that we can build homes out of containers that can be 50% less than average concrete homes? 
What is your view of a container house?

Hi! I think that container homes are a great idea! I will be building a small home very soon. One or two bedrooms with a single bath and I'm interested in using old shipping containers to do so. I've heard that it's less expensive than a concrete option, but wanted your opinion. Thanks for this post! Way to go, thinking outside of the box!

I think container or modular houses would be great as long as proper care is given to adequate ventilation.Is his something you would design? I would buy one.

I think it is a great idea to provide cost effective solution for the minimum wage population. I reviewed the pro's and the con's of the container home. I am not sure what the cost is to modify a container but it is an awesome solution for reducing building costs. Has your company done a prototype and identified the cost associated with converting the container? I would love to know how much it is to compare it to conventional building materials.
