A Reality Check For Your Container Home Expectations!

CBS News aired a testimonial from Zack and Brie Smithey who built their dream container home in St. Charles, Missouri: a 3BR, 2.5 bath, 3,000 sq. ft., two-story structure made out of eight shipping containers.

Throughout the interview, the Smithey's uncover the realistic cost and labor it took to produce their container home. On top of doing all of the work themselves, Zack tells CBS that "people have unrealistic expectations on how cheap a container home is going to be. They forget that the expensive parts like kitchens, bathrooms, HVAC, electric and plumbing are still there."
