Residential Shipping Container Homes
Container homes offer a fast and eco-friendly approach to construction. They are also more structurally sound than traditionally built homes creating less maintenance for home owners.
MODS International builds custom, container-based, residential housing structures that are only limited by your imagination. There are an abundance of containers sitting at ports across the world, we can take these slightly used containers and re-purpose them into any type of home such as a cabin, vacation home, granny flat or main residence. Container homes are becoming a popular choice for new home builders. Many people enjoy the industrial, modern style the containers offer, but we can also design the home to look more traditional. We can create any size home using multiple containers of various sizes.
A MODS home starts out as new or lightly used steel containers that are then modified and outfitted in our dedicated factory. A majority of the work is done in the factory, including removal of side panels, vertical beams inserted, cutting opening for doors and windows, and the insulation. Container homes can require some type of concrete foundation. This can be a slab or poured basement. When the outfitted containers arrive on site, they are lifted by crane onto the foundation, then embedded and welded into place. The rest of the interior of the home is finished on-site.
There are many reasons why containers are an ideal building material because they are strong, durable, stack-able, movable, plentiful, and relatively inexpensive. We take great care to ensure the containers we use to build are clean and ready for construction use. We also make sure we are building your container home specifically to your specifications and needs. Our container homes are built to the International Building Code (IBC) and in fact, exceed most ISO construction standards.
