Some of the Benefits of building container homes with converted shipping containers include:

1. Sustainability – Converting a shipping container is a great way to reuse and repurpose a product. Introducing a second useful life cycle for these used containers that are no longer suitable for carrying goods. Often converted containers are transformed into tiny homes or small temporary spaces reducing the use of building materials and natural resources.

2. Portability – Built originally for transport, shipping containers can be easily moved.

3. Strength and Durability – Steel shipping containers outlive their lifespan as cargo carriers within 5-years but these containers are well known for their durability, strength and are designed to carry heavy loads. They can be stacked in columns and are weather and salt-corrosion resistant.

4. Personalised – You can customise and personalise these spaces, making them reflect who you are and what you need them for.

Insta-space offer a wide variety of services and experience. Here is what Garry has to say about Finfloor.
