Container homes in Ketchikan are housing structures built out of shipping containers that have been abandoned in shipyards. They became popular over the past decade because of their uniqueness, durability, availability, and low cost. Ketchikan container homes are deemed to be environmentally-friendly because they are built out of recycled shipping containers. It is estimated that one shipping container is equivalent to 3,500 kg worth of steel. Using a container home will save you the expense of buying traditional building materials like concrete, wood, and bricks. They’re generally built in a manufacturing facility and will only be delivered to the site once done. This is good for lots that are not suitable for building. Container homes in Ketchikan are fast to build. A primary container home can be constructed in no more than a day or two. This is possible because a container home already has its floor, walls, and ceiling intact. Lastly, since container homes are considered to be made out of recycled materials, their cost is relatively small.
