        Might help the Housing Crisis

            Not reallly..

            Four years ago, Cardean Architects helped to build a shipping container home which was eventually donated to St Vincent de Paul.

            The project manager Michael Malone told Independent.ie: “It effectively took €70,000 in real money to convert it.”

            However, he cautioned: “Ultimately you’ve got the space equivalent to a large caravan. It’s easier getting a conventional built mobile home rather than taking a steel box which is unwieldy and trying to convert that and make it a permanent house, that you’d live in for 30 years.”

            “In going through the analysis of it, it is cheaper to do it in terms of conventional construction.”

            “33 square metres is half the size of a one-bed apartment. In order to build a two-bedroom house you need three shipping containers.”

            Modular homes, garden pods and log cabins can be bought for prices ranging from €30,000 to €100,000. They could be an easier alternative to shipping container homes, according to Malone.

            “In the true sense of a house, to get a container to end up as a permanent solution, you will spend as much on your home,” he said.

            “There’s plenty of options on the market in terms of modular housing, purpose built housing to standards. It’s a much better way of going.”

            “The fabric of the house is the cheapest part of the whole thing – the blocks and mortar. After that then you have things like site costs, planning costs; it needs to be properly wired and plumbed to a standard so there’s not necessarily any savings there. You can buy the fabric of a container for around €2,000 in the docks, you’re getting 30 square metres of volume, but if you need more, you need more containers.”

                              He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.
