To get an idea of what your house should look like, take a look at some of the existing container houses that are on the market today. If you are buying a prefabricated shipping container, you should consider whether you want to design or build your own. Shipping containers home requires some planning, making it a great option for those with limited budget and space.
At first glance, it might seem that building a shipping container cabin on already built base would be much easier than building ordinary tiny houses from scratch. Of course, with the shell already built, it is cheaper to turn shipping containers into tiny houses than to build a normal small house, and much less time than to build tiny off-the-shelf houses.
