“We are very pleased…we wanted a space that would solve a number of logistical problems. We have exactly the solution we were after, finished to an excellent standard and at a very competitive price.”

Container housing is our speciality. We build bespoke, brand new container homes and back them with a 10-year structural warranty.  We do not convert old shipping containers so you can count on the quality of our products.

Shipping containers are built for cargo and there are important differences to consider. Second-hand shipping containers have an unknown history, with exposure to seawater and knocks and dents.

Built your way

You can buy a new, fully equipped container house or multiple modular buildings to create the right housing solution for you.

Single container homes. Great value (check current prices), and we have a range of options to suit various needs – from an adapted home for an elderly relative, to a B&B for seasonal workers, a soundproofed teenage den, and more.

Multiple dwellings. Container homes can be an invaluable resource for agencies needing to house large numbers of people quickly, safely and economically. If you represent a local authority or housing association or a non-governmental organization (NGO), our experienced team can support you in every step of the decision process.
