What Is a Containerized House?

Introduction to Container Homes

Container Homes are houses made by slightly modifying shipping containers to have windows and doors. Container housing is a building system that is trendy and can be moved to various places, providing more convenient and comfortable living for people. Indoor electricity is provided by solar photovoltaic panels, while solar water heaters can provide heating and water supply. The discharge of indoor showers and domestic water is purified by a sewage treatment system for reuse. Container housing of different sizes can be made based on the number of people.

Using shipping containers to build houses is a new approach that is environmentally friendly, time-saving, and flexible. Compared to traditional housing, container housing can provide more choices for residents, from individuals to families and even communities. A house made of a steel box can also be stylish and environmentally friendly.

Containerized House Is an Effective Solution to Housing Problems

Experts believe that developing a "residential containerized house" may be an effective solution to the housing difficulties of low-income groups when the supply of affordable housing is tight or the purchasing power is limited. Container housing is also the most important part of the reconstruction work after major natural disasters. In addition, with the advanced production technology and equipment advantages, integrated housing with more uses, functions, and aesthetics has been developed, which can be mass-produced, efficiently assembled, quickly delivered, and meet the needs of large-scale emergencies or temporary situations.

Advantages of Containerized House

  • Container housing is easy to transport and is particularly suitable for units that frequently change construction sites;

  • Container housing is sturdy and durable, made entirely of steel, and has strong earthquake and deformation resistance;

  • Container housing has good sealing performance, and strict manufacturing processes make these modular homes highly watertight;
