Live in the Future: Shipping Container Homes

We are proud to be the builders behind Minnesota’s first-ever shipping container home. This is just the beginning — our mission is to help more homeowners discover the benefits of shipping container homes and create a more sustainable, eco-friendly future for our state and the planet.

Built To Last

Any home we build is made with durability in mind. However, shipping containers have a unique advantage: they have been strategically manufactured to withstand harsh conditions and protect whatever they hold. When repurposed into a home design, they offer enhanced reinforcement and durability. 

The containers we use are made of “weathering steel,” which means they’ve developed a layer of brown oxidation that actually protects them against future corrosion. Because they’ve been built to tolerate wet environments and extreme temperatures, you can confidently invest in your home, knowing it can withstand anything, especially once it’s been reinforced with protective paint and insulation by our team.

Save Money & Time Building Your Dream Home

Shipping containers are much easier to transport and assemble than traditional home-building materials. This ultimately means faster construction times and a more personalized home for less money and environmental impact.

FAQs About New Home Construction & Restoration

The answer depends on several factors, namely the size of the property, the amount of site work needed prior to construction, and the size and type of home you want to build. Procuring imported materials can prolong the process, but using locally sourced and American-made materials can streamline and accelerate building your home. Shipping container homes are also a lot faster to construct as they give us a “pre-built” structure to work with.

Home restoration can transform your property for sale or for your future enjoyment. Anyone who has owned a home for a long period can tell you that at the 10-year mark, the need for upgrades becomes apparent. Whether it’s a yard that needs to be redone, a refinished deck, new floors, or even an exterior facelift, restoration can increase property value, improve energy efficiency, and make your home more comfortable and functional.

Most clients can save a considerable amount of money by investing in shipping container homes. Because they’re pre-made, highly durable, and easy to build with, shipping container houses are a modern and cost-effective way to build a custom home.
