A modular home is a flexible and inexpensive alternative to a conventional home built on concrete foundations. It is known as a "flat pack" because it is delivered completely assembled. These are also extremely weatherproof, corrosion-proof and also have many great safety features built in. They're specifically designed for quick, easy and efficient shipping.
Some of the benefits of a modular house are: very cost effective - the materials are light steel and vinyl coated - the homes are available in many styles, colours and sizes - the assembly is completed quickly and easily with no need for specialized equipment or expertise - there is an environmentally friendly aspect as they use locally mined and recycled resources. The modular building has the same quality as any other type of prefabricated building and is approved by regulatory authorities around the world. The modular home is just as safe to live in as a traditional home.
These houses come in many different styles such as modern, contemporary, custom and country-style. They can be built with a variety of different types of wood and other materials. Some even use special lighting systems and appliances that are fitted while in storage. One of the advantages of these container houses is the ease with which they can be transported from site to site. As most of them are made of light steel structure, the transportation of them can be completed in a single day, if required.
Some of the benefits of the flat pack container houses are: extremely competitive in cost with other types of prefabricated housing - the modular home can be designed exactly as you wish with absolutely no limitations and very little waste or space - the modular container is built strong and is highly durable - the modular home is virtually maintenance free - the modular flat pack container houses are environmentally friendly - your energy bills will be much lower - they do not occupy much space when in use - when the project is complete, it is extremely easy to disassemble and reassemble the system at the site for reuse. However, there are disadvantages of the flat pack container house too and they are fairly significant. Firstly, since there is no ceiling in the container, there is a chance of rain or other weather affecting the roof of the modular house. Secondly, due to the fact that there is no ceiling on the house, it could get damaged in high winds. This is especially true during the summer months.
It is very difficult to expand or contract the size of the house once it has been manufactured. You cannot add or remove modules after the manufacturing process has been completed and then start storing them. If you are planning to expand your home in the future, you would have to dismantle the entire system again. However, there are options to overcome this problem. You can either hire an independent service provider to build your home based on modular plans or you can choose a custom home plan with all the correct specifications.
The advantages of using a flat pack container house is that it is extremely lightweight. The aot flat pack container houses can be carried by forklift trucks. The weight of the container is minimal thus makes it easy to move the container from one location to another. The system does not have any building codes to adhere to therefore it is possible to relocate the house without having to make any changes in the structure of the modular container. Furthermore, because there is no need for any type of foundation, the cost of using this type of shipping containers is far less than using concrete or wooden walls for housing a traditional house. This is the main reason why many people prefer flat pack shipping containers.
The disadvantages of using flat pack containers are also numerous. Firstly, the size of the container means that it will take up a very small amount of space. This means that the house cannot be placed in areas that have a lot of space because the house will simply become part of the landscape.
Secondly, the cost involved in building these container houses is much more expensive than the cost of building a traditional house. The modular design involved in these prefab homes means that the price per square foot is much higher than the cost of traditional construction. Also, the modular design reduces the energy efficiency of the house significantly. This means that the heat and electricity bills will be higher as well. However, due to the large number of advantages that the prefab home offers prefab home builders are becoming increasingly interested in these types of container houses.
