Some of the companies that build homes from shipping containers are Numen Development, LLC in Houston, TX, SG Blocks in New York and Rhino Cubed in Colorado. These companies provide container structures with varying designs, price and customisations, from a basic backyard shed to a fully-equipped home.
Shipping containers are ideal and economical to use as building materials because of their durability, stackability and affordability. Phillip C. Clark owns the patent for the method of converting these shipping containers into habitable buildings.
This type of prefabricated home is very easy to assemble, so buyers have the option to just buy the container modules and accessories, assemble the structure and finish it on their own, or let the company build everything onsite for them.
