– containers are really durable as they’re developed for use at sea. the structure of your house could be up in a few days. But only after lengthy engineers reports and reinforce works etc. have actually been performed. Availability – containers are reasonably plentiful and simple to get. – as they’re steel they’ll move heat really quickly, so in hot environments they can get too hot and in cold environments they can be really cold.
