Most houses people buy in a city or town turn out not to be the great long term investment they hoped for. Conventional homes can be a money pit draining dollars for construction, mortgage, maintenance, repairs, taxes and utilities. In our current turbulent times one must also consider career, family, health, job, marital status and lifestyle moves and re-locations. There are better options and ways to live a Dream Life as shown in this Living Big In a Tiny House video so consider container construction. We plan to build some in our Belize Eco Village.
Many homes are being built with low cost labor and builder grade materials that can cause the owners big bucks in the near future. It is possible to get the benefits of a shipping container, modular house and tiny house combined into one great home. Using shipping container construction combined with modern modular design you can enjoy the benefits of amazing affordability, designed durability, energy efficiency, plug and play versatility and proven portability for a better and healthier lifestyle.
Most built on site conventional homes start out with many design flaws that are excessive and expensive. Container construction offers eco friendly housing and a transportable innovation. With computer automated design capabilities LEED architects, designers and engineers can create innovative plans which will result in minimal energy, maintenance and repair issues in the future. Shipping container construction can integrate green building efficiency with homes that are modern, modular and movable. Today we can implement the ideas, information and innovations for creatively designed homes that can be transported and relocated as our desires and needs change. A container home can be built and designed for 100+ years of practical use with minimal maintenance and upkeep. The global economy, energy issues and environmental concerns are forcing us to rethink better building options. Since a house is usually the largest single investment most people will ever make why not build a better habitat that will provide the perfect place for you and generations to come.
When you decide to build for durability, efficiency, longevity and quality a container modern, modular and movable house is a smart choice. With container construction, proper planning and quality workmanship a home could easily last over a hundred years and be there for future generations. By avoiding the use of harmful chemicals and toxins and furnishing it with natural and renewable building materials we insure our happiness and health long term. Eco friendly container modular homes can help provide quality accommodations with a lower carbon footprint and price long term.
Many apartments, condos, houses, modular homes, prefabs, small houses, townhomes and trailer homes could be built and designed using container conservation construction and mobile modern modular sections to look nice and last longer. People are spending a fortune on a place to live and may end up buying, selling and moving several times during a lifetime. It is a major financial waster of energy, money, resources and time to repeatedly buy, sell and move. Imagine how great it would be if you could just buy a container modular unit with the contents inside and ship the entire unit to a new location. By placing more focus and importance on building homes with affordability, durability, eco friendly, efficiency, functionality and sustainability in mind the logical conclusion is prefabricated shipping container modular homes make sense. A simple solution to much of our housing crisis is to build small homes and use movable containers and modular units. This information is intended to help educate, inspire and motivate people to look at shipping container construction and modular movable home units for eco friendly housing as an integral part of their identity and lifestyle.
Bricks & Sticks Builders Beware
Old fashion bricks and sticks houses with big bills, big mortgages and big price tags are not eco friendly and sustainable. Too many people fantasize about owning a big fancy house and wind up in deep debt to pay for and maintain it. Too many people are wasting their money on lower quality and high cost homes that are hazardous to the owners health. People in the US and many developed countries are becoming a slave to their home, maintenance and mortgage payments. Most homes start falling apart long before it is paid off and often turns out to be a poor investment long term. The financial drain robs people of their financial freedom and future retirement. I have written previously about the environmental, financial and health hazards of US housing.
Most bricks and sticks builders get buy with a lack of quality materials combined with outdated building methods and standards which results in homes today that are not built or designed to last 100+ years. As a result they will cost the owner a fortune in excess energy, maintenance and repairs over the life of the house and owner.
While many people have been brainwashed and hypnotized into believing the marketing hype many smart people are waking up to discover there are better building alternatives. When we invest the energy, money and time to educate our selves and demand better conservation construction and design standards we find a myriad of new choices. The last two years of research and travel for better eco building practices has helped me gain great ideas, insights and inspiration for developing and designing container and modular homes for our Belize Eco Village.
