Shipping Container Homes for Sale: From Off Grid Dwellings

Small footprint. Smaller dent in your wallet. Big-time durability.

Besides the reasons above, what makes a shipping container home from Off Grid Dwellings so unique is the multiple ways it can be used!

Prefab Homes can be made from used shipping containers (single container solutions to multiple containers big) in a way that does not have the interior and exterior feeling like it is made from a recycled piece of metal. 

A beautiful shipping container could be your next dream home, a mountain retreat, lake house, backyard accessory dwelling unit, or even an AirBnB business opportunity!

Smart, clean designs with lots of upgrade options allows you to have a custom build at an affordable price.

As much as we would love to list the individual specs on each of these units you would be better off clicking on the photos or titles of each one to see them for yourselves. What we CAN list here for everyone to see:

  • Made 100% In The U.S.A. = Come right down to Florida to see our factory (with appointment)
  • Actual stamped engineered designs that pass one of the strictest county codes in America
  • Are “Plug & Play” ready so the moment your unit arrives you can plug it in and start living in it comfortably!
  • Full Off Grid Upgrade Available
  • If you have any questions give us a call or shoot us an email!
While we do offer some basic custom options a lot of time has gone into designing and building these containers to create a truly comfortable home. We do offer High Cube options for some of these one-bedroom options and as always a permanent foundation is always a positive.

**QUICK TIP: Concrete Foundations Are Your Friend

Container Home Foundations

There are many different foundation options you can choose from when placing your container home down on the ground to secure it.

Some immediate benefits to attaching your container home to a concrete foundation are below:

  • Secures your home in place protecting it against any ground / soil shifting or settling.
  • Secures your home in case of larger earthquakes and other natural disasters
  • Increases your wind rating from 110 MPH to over 150 MPH!

There are multiple foundation options but many of our customers go with concrete piers as it is much more cost effective than laying a whole slab while still providing similar benefits.
