As for any project for living area or house must take into account the site where the container will be located and the construction regulations of that place that prevent you from doing so, since it is possible in certain communities, neighborhood associations, municipalities or subdivisions this type of housing is not approved.
At MYB we advise you before starting the project or design to ensure that the land is suitable for your container home.
The containers are built to withstand long periods of travel on ships withstanding the worst conditions of saltpeter winds, water and extreme temperatures.
The containers we use at MYB are new and carry sheet metal maintenance and effective insulation to make it habitable.
The doors and windows are made of anti-impact materials, they have a design adjusted to the characteristics of the container. We have specialized equipment for transportation and placement in the field.
A container house can be built in a period of approximately 6 to 9 months, after the project is approved by the competent bodies, depending on the equipment and resources available to the interested party.
Container houses offer a lot of creativity and flexibility in design. The basic structure can be reused in any way you see fit.
A container house with good maintenance can last >as long as any conventional house. Transport containers are robust designed with the purpose of protecting cargo that is transported by sea therefore they are able to withstand any weather condition that can be imagined:
But also, one you may not have thought about immediately: the sun's rays
Transport containers are made of steel alloys that resist the corrosive effects of rain, fog and other natural weather conditions forming an oxidation-like layer on metal, this in particular is one of the great advantages of container houses.
Este tipo de acero también se utiliza para construir puentes. Este material apenas requiere de mantenimiento una vez terminada la construcción. Debido a estas cualidades, las casas contenedoras son en realidad mucho más seguras que las casas tradicionales.
Container houses have some limitations, which with a good design can be corrected, however, it is good to take them into account when thinking about acquiring one of these houses.
