One couple has decided to utilize cargo containers in a way that few people have. They have opted to have a home built from cargo containers, in the Santa Cruz Mountains, no less.
The Santa Cruz Mountains are a haven for many people. It is great for hiking and is ideal for individuals that want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. This particular home was constructed from 4 container boxes, cut into 6 pieces.
In all, the total cost of the build was $408,000, a pretty substantial amount. The couple likely would have spent this much if they had a traditional home built. In many instances, modular housing isn’t cheaper, but this won’t make it less preferable for some people.
