Over the years, this major challenge has denied many individuals from living in their comfort zone or dream home as they would wish for, either because of money issues, or the stress associated with owning a house in Nigeria.

Hence, the purpose of this write-up is to enlighten Nigerians the pro’s and con’s that accompanies shipping container housing in the country.

Also note that shipping containers could be constructed on the designated site or off site if there’s  shortage of space in which they can be later moved to the desired location with a truck.

4) Safety and Security: Another factor to be considered is the security that comes with shipping containers. In Nigeria safety and security is an important priority for her citizens due to the shortcomings experienced overtime in this area. Thus the designed structure of containers which comes with strong and robust parts and surfaces enables it to be exposed to regular rough handling. Therefore, it can’t be easily broken into with ease. This would go a long way in easing off security fears and enable anyone go about his or her normal activity as carried out in a concrete designed structure.

5) Structural Longevity And Life Span: One of the frequently asked questions about container homes, is how long can it last? The sincere answer to this is simply as long as possible with proper maintenance. This type of structure mostly originate from Corten steel which are stronger than traditional steel which is less prone to corrosion. Container structures are more potent and stronger than wooden, concrete and the average regular steel buildings. Irrespective of how they are built, they offer strong resistance to any sort of Natural disaster which enables it longevity.

6) Exterior and Interior Design: Considering the visible difference between container structures and the traditional concrete structures, on tends to wonder if the exterior and interior view of a container home can look appealing to the eyes.

7) Comfortability and Temperature: Many tend to wonder if shipping container homes can give the comfort one desires. This is absolutely possible, considering the fact that shipping containers are made from metals which are good conductors of heat. Furthermore, containers have to be carefully and properly insulated in other to regulate temperature during rainy and dry season.

8) Regulations Governing Container Housing: Due to the slow adoption of container homes in Nigeria, most States   are  yet to come up with substantial regulations that would govern shipping container housing in the country. However, it is advisable to secure permits to guarantee the establishment of your container home, to avoid unnecessary issues in the future when laws would have been fully put in place to govern this method of housing in the country.

9) Companies Who Specialize in Container Housing: It is expedient that as you imagine and determined to have a container home structure of your own, the professional requirements and standard associated with building this kind of structures are given to recognized and ideal professionals in this field.
