Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, container house is a good choice of affordable housing in the Philippines. Many Filipinos yearn for stability but find it difficult to buy a house due to poverty. If you need want to build a sturdy house with a limited budget, a container house is a great idea.
Yes. PAG-IBIG members can loan money for their container house construction. You may also apply for a loan for your residential lot where the prefab container house is to be installed. The maximum amount that a PAG-IBIG member can loan depends on his capacity to pay. To maximize your loaning capacity, you and a family member who is also a PAG-IBIG member can apply for the same house loan.
Yes. Building codes apply to all houses and buildings in the Philippines, regardless if it is a container house construction/installation. Building Permit will include the Barangay Permit, Building Permit, and Occupancy Permit. These permits take time to process just like in processing permits for any traditional houses in the Philippines.
There are two types of container homes: prefabricated/modular container houses and shipping/cargo container homes. Prefab modular homes are built in a factory, manufactured in a production line, finished with the electrical fixtures and painting, and shipped to your lot/site for assembly. There’s no need for a contractor to assemble it. You’d only need workers to install the frame, wall panels, windows, doors, and lighting which are all provided in a package. Shipping container homes, on the other hand, are houses built out of used or new cargo containers. You would need a contractor to build the shipping container house for you, install the plumbing system, electrical, lighting, etc. There’s a lot of welding, cleaning, insulation, and finishing involved.
If you’re a minimalist and just want an economically-made house, go for a prefab container home. You can purchase it from us and we will ship it to your site. But if you are after a sophisticated, architecturally pleasing house, go for a shipping container construction. We also offer this service. If you are interested, you can ask us for a quotation.

Yes, our prefab flat-pack container houses are insulated with 50mm EPS Color Steel sandwich panels.

Yes, container houses are generally made from corten steel, a type of steel that endures hurricanes, storms, and harsh weather. The material can also withstand high temperatures even without painting.

Cargo sea containers are mostly secure as it’s designed to safely keep products from imports and exports.

Regular homes in the Philippines may cost 20,000 PHP/sqm to 45,000 PHP/sqm ($400 to $900 per sqm). Modular container homes can cost 18,000 PHP/sqm to 35,000 PHP/sqm depending on the complexity of the design you want.

A prefab container house that came from a factory, fresh and unused, may last 10 to 50 years depending on the type you choose. The most economical product we have, the detachable container house, can last 10 to 15 years. Our flat-pack container house can last 15 to 30 years. Shipping container homes built from new cargo containers may last up to 50 years, depending on how you maintain it.

Container houses can have a very large resale value of up to 100% and above. Plus, being able to move them, dismantle them and deliver them anywhere makes it attractive.
