Probably the biggest thing to understand is that the container will only be a small fraction of your total cost. Most containers will run you anywhere from $1,500-$4,500 (depending on age and size), while most container cabins start in the $20k range for a small single unit home.
It takes a lot, particularly in the US, to get a container up to code and properly insulated. Simply adding a door and a few windows will double your initial cost.
Shipping container homes and buildings are very cool, but most people we talk to assume it’s a cheap alternative to traditional housing. While your total cost will probably be a little less than traditional wood construction, and you’ll benefit from a more durable steel building, in most cases you won’t save that much money…
