Shipping Container Homes

Posted on

We are currently working on a project with a team of contractors in Montrose to develop an affordable and sustainable repurposed shipping container in Walsenburg, Colorado. Check back for updates and contact us if you would be interested in a custom 40ft prefabricated container home.

With the green premise growing in popularity across the globe, more and more people are turning to cargo container structures for green alternatives. There are countless numbers of empty, unused shipping containers around the world just sitting on shipping docks taking up space. The reason for this is that it’s too expensive for a country to ship empty containers back to their origin. In most cases, it’s just cheaper to buy new containers from Asia. The result is an extremely high surplus of empty shipping containers that are just waiting to become a home, office, apartment, school, dormitory, studio, emergency shelter, and everything else.

  • We offer full service development of your shipping container home. (Currently only available in select Colorado counties)
  • Local contractors, engineers, and architects bring your idea into reality.



If you have never heard of container home contructions check out some great short videos on construction of container homes below:

Example of a Utah developer that did 670 sq ft home for 55 to 60 thousand dollars. (The video is long but great example of basic container construction.)

This is a more complex design but a great example of the process of building on site. It also shows ways you can get creative on un level land.
