Container Life: A Beautiful, Modern Solution

There are thousands of abandoned shipping containers across the world - and financially savvy minimalists have decided to put them to use. “Container homes” are the latest trend in residential construction, providing a quick, cost-effective solution for affordable housing.


Our clients request shipping container renovations for a variety of purposes, from pop-up restaurants to portable office quarters. Most commonly, however, people request shipping container homes to live inside either full or part-time.

Creative and Unique

With the help of the Hitek team, design a tiny house that speaks to your lifestyle, values, and personality. We begin each container home project with customized plans for every client. Let’s have a conversation about what you want from your unique shipping container house.

protected container homes

Protected From the Environment

Each of our container homes is designed to be water and wind-tight, as well as fully insulated. Take this house to any location and you’ll be safe inside, as will your belongings. We take Floridian weather and environmental conditions into account during all elements of construction.


Energy-Efficient and Green

Reduce, reuse, and recycle with a container home that’s designed to minimize your carbon footprint. Not only do these tiny homes take up minimal space, but they also reuse materials that would otherwise be considered waste.

Rated for Hurricane Safety

A container home can still be just as safe as a regular home - when built professionally. At Hitek Truss Design, we are used to building structures that are built to last. Our knowledgeable team will ensure the architecture and engineering are designed to withstand Florida’s tropical storms - even hurricanes.

Fortunately, most shipping containers are already built to withstand exposure on the open sea. They’re sturdy and tough, ready to handle inclement weather conditions better than most traditional houses.

Own Your Own Home for An Affordable Price

A home built within a shipping container is a cost-effective way to own your own home without a big mortgage. They require fewer building materials and labor to construct than traditional houses, but you still have the option to customize the house from scratch, adding personal touches from the get-go.

We build shipping container homes in a matter of weeks, not months. We won’t let your list of construction costs grow endlessly. Let’s talk about your budget and come up with a price point that works for you.

According to research, the number one reason many Millennials in the U.S. expect to rent continuously is that they cannot afford to buy a home. Container homes can change that.
