NOT Converted Shipping Containers!

Ordinary shipping containers cannot be brought up to UK Building Regulation Standards, and although our units may look like these converted containers, our ISO containers are manufactured from bare steel and the vast majority of our Customers prefer the smooth-sided finish they provide.

Apart from the construction and door mechanisms, the ISO Containers are actually empty underneath except for the wooden floors, so appearance is where the similarity between our units and the shipping containers ends.

Shipping containers are designed for cargo, as you would expect, and to be converted so that they are useable as a dwelling requires extensive adaptation, not to mention time. There are some big differences between a simple container and a container home, including the insulation of the outer walls, the indoor finishes and the materials used that need to withstand both outdoor weather and indoor use.

Just one example of how our housing modules can be configured.

We also need to ensure that any materials, finished and paint used are suited to living conditions – a shipping container construction doesn’t have to consider health hazards because they only need to transport cargo, whereas everything in our housing modules are designed with this as a priority.

Our Container Homes

While the premise of using these converted shipping containers for accommodation is the same, our container homes differ as they’re not just modified freight containers weathered by sea journeys, but instead are professionally designed and intricately built modern living spaces.

All our container homes are specifically adapted and designed to withstand the requirements of everyday life, with all containers being internally and externally insulated and lined, and all fixtures and fittings supplied. Coupled with the solid steel floors and pressure-bowed roofs to allow rain to run off, these container homes are the perfect economic housing solution for fulfilling your basic living needs.

We build our container homes to your specifications from thousands of options – you can even choose the colour of your MAC container home! This means you get an ideal space for work or leisure expertly designed to suit your needs. And because we build bespoke container homes and don’t use converted shipping containers, we can back them up with a 10-year structural warranty.

With our container homes you get the low-cost, portability and efficiency of a shipping container home combined with the comfort, safety and bespoke nature of a custom built house.
