Prefab Container Homes

In a world of limited space for housing, people have turned toward storage container homes, and plans have been developed for prefab container homes, which make the on-site construction process even easier.

Prefab Container House Design

Compact houses of a prefabricated form make easy work of the creation of inexpensive living spaces. The designs of compact houses show just how much room we really need in order to live in comfort. You can opt for a two-story prefab container home that has the containers positioned either on top of one another, or with one perpendicular to the other, which is more creative, and quite original in appearance.

Upper containers in prefab units cross the lower units, giving you shade outside the house. They can even allow room for a terrace. If the perpendicular mounting method is used, you can even enjoy a patio on your rooftop, with a sliding door. The interior of these buildings can be quite cool in appearance, with graceful staircases and windows stretching from the floor to the ceiling.
