You can now build shipping container houses in Nigeria

I’ve always been fascinated by houses built from shipping containers. My first encounter with such houses were from many years ago during  my visits to the Julius Berger camp in Ikot Abasi, Akwa Ibom state – where these shipping containers were used as make shift offices.

My interest in prefabricated container houses totally spiked after seeing beautiful homes and structures built with containers in British and Australian lifestyle magazines.

I especially loved the beautiful container homes set against nature.

I am aware that building pre-fabricated homes is not common practice in Nigeria and hardly would you find a container house in Nigeria’s expensive real estate sector.

However, with the launch of Ventures platform beautiful Abuja offices, I was totally sold on the concept of alternative construction for both residential and commercial purposes.

Checkout some photos of Ventures Platform Abuja office built with containers.

It is my prediction that container houses and other forms of alternative home construction will become a huge trend in Nigeria’s real estate sector in the next decade.

Some of the benefits of building container houses are:

  • They’re faster to construct
  • They’re usually less expensive than traditional brick and mortar homes
  • Land value is preserved
  • Can be made mobile and furnished to suit owner’s taste.
