Shipping containers are made of solid metal construction—an excellent starting point to create a unique business or residential space. Containers are gaining popularity as "tiny homes." Combine two or more side by side or stack them to connect them to create a truly customized creation.


Homes made from shipping containers are sustainable and efficient. Designs run the gamut from functional to fabulous. These homes can be made from a single container or multiple containers/multiple stories with air conditioning/heating, skylights, full kitchens, baths and window treatments. Modifications are made offsite. When the finished home is delivered, it is secured to a foundation, a roof is added and plumbing and electricity installed. The process is quick and is a fraction of the cost of a "traditional" home.


Shipping containers meet the needs of businesses, whether a retail space or office building, Property owners looking to create an eclectic ambiance can assemble containers in various configurations to attract retail, hospitability and business tenants.

Storage Options:

  • roll up and steel doors
  • shelving
  • finished electricity
