      Guffaw! I’ve gotten into the habit of not buying anything from Amazon unless it is under Prime or free shipping from an independent seller.

    I would consider one as it is extremely solid. And one could add a deck, or a 2nd container on top, etc.
    Ship for free with Prime, heck they’ve been talking about delivering their orders with drones!!!

    I cannot see how there can be a valid warranty on the product or workmanship while the employees continue to report paychecks are bouncing, and owner is facing multiple court cases.

    One container for $40,000? How about 2 for $40k? Then, and only then, would it be worth it. Sorry.

    Bunk beds? You put bunk beds in there instead of a real bed? And, no, I wouldn’t pay 40k for it. Single wide mobile homes are bigger and less expensive.

      True, though shipping containers can be easier to move and can be considered more durable and that may be worth it to someone who may need to place it someplace less than ideal or need to take advantage of how they can be modular and stackable, which is a feature many other solutions are generally not able to provide and PreFab/modular houses can cost just as much if not more.

      There just seems to be a general misunderstanding on costs in general… Yes, you can acquire a used shipping container for only a few thousand but that doesn’t mean they are always cheap to convert into something you can actually want to live in…

      The main appeal to doing a shipping container is the fact you’re helping to recycle a product that would otherwise take up space in a landfill, which may appeal to those concerned about the environment and sustainability, it provides a way to have a low start up cost as it automatically gives you a working framework to start from and it can also appeal because it can be done DIY and not just commercially.

      For certain applications it can be done pretty cheaply but the moment you make serious changes and start making it look and function like a traditional house is when the price jumps substantially…

      There are container houses composed of six or more containers that run into the hundreds of thousands…

      Location also matters for both the builder doing the conversion and the buyer… Moving costs can be substantial if you need to move it further than 50 miles… Building and operational costs vary across the country… and part of the delivery costs for the final placement often includes setting up and installing a foundation to put it on, since you can’t always just place it on the ground, especially if you want it to last and be able to hook it to the grid for utilities… among other cost variables…

      So they’re not always the most economical, unless you’re DIYing it then there are certainly cheaper options, but they can still have their niche for what unique features they do provide…
