With their standard sizes, inherent durability, bright exteriors, and global availability, shipping containers make the perfect shell for these ready-to-buy, prefabricated homes.

The container was brought to the property by truck, then the architectural team rented a small crane for around $250 a day to rotate it until they found the right spot for it to rest.

Shipping containers are one of the most commonly recycled building materials—and with good reason! Several factors make them the perfect candidates for adaptive reuse: they are water-tight, sturdy, created for transportation, and simple and versatile in their design. Here, we review some of the most intriguing shipping container homes on the market that you can purchase right away.
