Converting a Shipping Container into Your New Home

The shipping container industry has really taken off in the last decade or so. With the large influx of shipping containers being used very few times, we are left with a large amount of completely usable containers sitting in yards for years. By human nature, we all take a look at optimizing our lives and the materials contributing to the pollution of our planet. Enter shipping container reuse and customization, Bob’s Containers’ specialty.

Where to Start

The first step in the process depends on you deciding to do some investigation into what it would take to put together a home you will feel comfortable with and will remain functional and safe for years to come. Consider the features you would like such as size, functionality, purpose, and location for your new shipping container home. This is an excellent spot in the process to loop our team of shipping container experts into the mix. We know what can and cannot be done to make your vision come to life.

Begin the Design Phase

Once we have walked through all of the features and functionality you are looking to accomplish in your new home, we begin the design phase. We will work closely with you to ensure your vision and purpose is being executed to the full potential. We can even include things like wall finishes and computer-generated parts to fit into the areas associated so you can get a feel of the look of your new home before we start cutting any metal. There are some specific items to consider in the design phase as we do have to consider the structural integrity of the shipping container itself to keep you safe inside your home.

Build Your Dream Container Home

After the design phase is solidified and confirmed by you, we begin the execution of the container home build. We remain communicative throughout the whole process and will be sure to ask any questions as they may come up. Our team of designers and engineers have the tools and knowledge to bring your vision to life in the most efficient way possible. The whole purpose of these homes is to lower carbon footprint and efficiency, so it doesn’t make much sense for us to use a large industrial warehouse to build our custom containers. Our shop in South Austin remains lean and responsive to our client’s needs as they arise.

Container Home Delivery

We will then schedule a time for the delivery of your new home. There are a few action items for you to prepare the area for arrival, but we can discuss all of that when the time comes. Our delivery service with a smile makes us who we are and we remain an ally in investigating shipping container home issues when they arise. Give us a call to start the process of building your custom container home today.
