Arguably the most popular alternate use for a shipping container is as a converted living space or home. Increasingly, customers are turning to shipping containers to design and create the house of their dreams. Offering an affordable, versatile, eco-friendly and robust alternative to traditional construction methods, shipping containers can be customised and modified to become perfect living spaces. You can choose from a range of size options, select a high cube container for a little extra ceiling height or even combine a number of containers –whether you need a single occupancy granny flat or a family home, Container Traders will have the perfect container for you. Simply choose your containers and then select any modifications you wish to make. These modifications are practically endless but the basics include electrical fitout, plumbing services, lighting, flooring and wall coverings, air conditioning, insulation, as well as the addition of windows and doors.
