A container home is a site-built home that is built using either new or used steel shipping containers. These are very popular in coastal areas where shipping containers are readily available. They are not mobile at all, and are permanently attached to the property. They are seen as a more green or eco-friendly alternative form of housing, because they reuse shipping containers that might otherwise be discarded. Their price per square foot is comparable to that of site built housing. While not a manufactured home, a container home is another good option for those looking for an alternative to site built housing.
