Welcome one and all. In case you forgot this is house containers, the place where we talk about container living and I give you helpful nuggets of handy tips that will ease the process of creating or moving into a container home.
Today I want to discuss something that isn’t quite as glamorous as you’d probably hoped but it definitely is still vital when it comes to bucking the trend and escaping to the wilderness that is container living.
One of the most important aspects of a container home isn’t its aesthetic beauty, or how jealous your friends are going to be once its complete. Its the heating and insulation of the building. Because the metal walls of the container are likely to be thing, its vital that you source the proper and best insulation materials you can get your hands on. This can still be done even on a budget. One thing you want to keep in mind is the depth of insulation, and again this always depends on weather of where it is you are living.
If you are preparing a move to a container in the southern states of america then I wouldn’t be too worried about your depth. In other words you won’t need much. However, if you’re moving up to windy Scotland, then it’s definitely something you’ll have to give more considerable thought too.
The one thing you have to remember about insulation is the impact or space it will eventually take up. It needs to be placed between the outer and inner wall of your container. That means, the more insulation you have the more room its going to take up, and the smaller your room will be. Again, this is something you’ll have to think about for a while before making a decision.
One way around this issue is installing a highly effective boiler and heating system. You’ll want to do this anyway, but its worth noting that a highly efficient one will probably mean you won’t have to go for as much insulation as you originally thought. I recently went through the process of having a new boiler installed in my London home and they did a perfect job. Take a look at their video if its something you think you will need.

So, my one most important tip? It’s simple, you should hire an interior designer. Ok, Ok, this may not seem fiscally viable to you at first but let me explain myself. I was going through a similar situation a few years ago, and after some consulting with my family members we decided it would be a good idea to hire an interior designer from leeds. Do you want to know how we came to this conclusion. Because we realised that hiring one would actually save us money. That’s right. You did hear me correctly.
What may people don’t know is that the expert knowledge that a professional interior designer contains in their creative heads can save you a huge amount of dough, from finding good deals on furniture and lights, to making sure you avoid paying too much on shipping of these items, to hooking you up with their personal contacts if you ever need to hire other professionals like an architect or a builder.
They really are integral and it’s something I strongly urge you do if you’re at this stage. Even their insight and ideas can help you form a better idea of what it is you exactly want for your home.
