Welcome Home Prefab Container Home Kit

zigloo kitcontainerhome 01 Welcome Home Prefab Container Home Kit

Another Shipping Container Concept Home. This one is by Zigloo a firm out of Canada. We have covered some of their designs in the past, including a really cool Floating Ocean City. This concept design is made from three shipping containers, to create a 800 sq. ft. home in the country side or an urban infill. The architect says he would like to deliver these home at around $150 per sq ft.

(via zigloo.ca) The WelcomeHome totals 800 square feet on a small footprint. Perfect for a get-away cottage, a quick guest home, an environmental infill solution. The design lends itself perfectly to an off-the-grid solution utilizing wind power, solar power, solar hot water, passive air circulation organic spray-foam insulation and a green roof.

WelcomeHome kit will cost USD $12,000 plus shipping to the destination to your choice. With the foundations, standard services, and interior finishes, my aim is to make this kit a $120,000 quick build solution ($150/sqft).

The upper floor plan has 2 bedrooms (one overlooking the entry, and one with a private balcony) and 3 piece bathroom (shower).

The main floor plan is an open concept with the living, dining and kitchen areas all open to each other. The laundry easily accommodates a stacking washer/dryer and mechanical systems necessary for the comfort of the WelcomeHome.

    I'm more than a bit skeptical about this because all I see are renderings – not a photo of an actual house built with this kit. Have any houses been built with this? What about Code issues, the way the International Residential Code reads, houses made from shipping containers must be engineered. Does the design take into account varying snow loads, wind loads, seismic loads based on location?

    I would feel better if they had actual photos to show this has been built, I wouldn't want to buy one and find I'm the first one to try to assemble it.
