China Prefab

A Prefab Shipping Container House

WF House ExterirorOver the past few years, I have seen some incredibly ingenious shipping container house designs. Building a house using a container is one way that you can build yourself a house at a reduced cost.

If you have a design that is fairly simple, you could probably build it for very little – in comparison to the cost of building a traditional house.

If you want something a little more customized and elaborate, you should expect to pay more.

Either way, buying a used container is a great place to start. Apparently, if you look in the right place, you can get your house shell for a few thousand dollars.

If you want really small, you can make a nice place from one. If you want something a little larger, use more than one and create a nice, unique home.

People have been building complete houses by combining numerous modules together.

The design is clean, simple, yet beautifully done. This open layout has become one of my favorites, partially because I have always liked this type of open concept.
