In the past few years, container houses have become more and more popular due to their affordability, durability and eco-friendliness. In theory, it seems easy to build a ideal container house, but there are a few things you need to consider to ensure that the house is well-built, beautiful and sustainable. We have prepared a checklist to show you some simple suggestions you can take to ensure that you can easily buy a proper container house.
1. Check the container house before buying
When buying a container house, you may not be able to inspect it in person, especially on the other side of the world. However, you can request a picture before the product is shipped and a packed picture of the container house. Pay attention to the dimensions before purchasing to ensure that there is enough space for the container house you buy.
2. Study building codes in your area
Different countries or cities have different regulations for building container houses. Before you start building, make sure you understand the legal information. To make sure you get off to a good start, check building codes of your local place and state.
3. Find the right building contractor
Finding a contractor experienced in all aspects of the container house can make the construction process smooth. They can help you get the type of container house you need. It is better to deal with one contractor than several ones, as this makes project management easier. PTH can provide one-stop service, including R & D design, manufacturing, storage and transportation, installation guidance, after-sales service and other solutions.
4. Ensure good thermal insulation performance
You need to choose a container house with thermal insulation effect to make your living more comfortable. PTH's container house uses 75mm EPS sandwich panels with an EPS density of 12kg/㎡. It has light weight, heat insulation, sound insulation, and corrosion resistance.
5. Avoid dividing containers
When an ordinary container is cut into additional doors or windows, its structural integrity will be affected. The more you cut the container, the more you need to strengthen it, increasing your budget. The doors and windows, switches, and sockets of the PTH container house are prefabricated in the factory. The wall mounting position can be moved for free combination.
6. Design project planning
Make sure you have a good understanding of where the electrical wires and plumbing pipes will enter and exit the house. If you have never bought a container before, determine a detailed project plan first. PTH has an independent R & D technology center with more than 100 R & D design and technical engineers, including 9 nationally registered construction and structural engineers and 3 senior engineers. They have formed an experienced and skilled professional team which has laid a solid foundation for PTH’s design and technology.
