One of the best features about modular housing is that it doesn’t have to remain a permanent fixture. Shipping containers and modular units are transportable, so as soon as you’ve had your use of it, it can be carted off your premises, freeing up your space once more.
This is one of the reasons why such units are perfect for temporary home extensions and renovations. There are many instances when you may need to create a space for a temporary residency, and if you have enough space on your land then it may be an idea to invest in a unit. Remember, however, that it is vital that you check whether you will need planning permission before proceeding.
You may find that an older member of your family is no longer able to live alone with the responsibility of maintaining a house. Having a mobile unit transformed into a mini-flat could be the perfect way to make sure they stay close by if you don’t have a spare room in the house.
This is a great alternative to making permanent renovations inside your home that might be an inconvenience. Once older relatives can’t look after themselves properly any longer, then the next option for them is to take residency in a nursing home which can end up being very expensive.
Investing in a bespoke container could save on care home costs and can be more tailored to people’s needs and requirements. Units can also be designed and furnished in any way you desire, so can make for a cosier, more homely space.
Live in help
It may be the decision of your family member to remain in their own home, but with a carer working and living in with them. Again, if they don’t have the space or feel uncomfortable with someone living directly in their home, then a unit can be transformed into a space with all the essentials.
Not only can units hold the necessary furnishings, but can also be insulated properly and kitted out with electricity and heating systems for ultimate comfort in a home from home.
The Return of the Student
When your children go off to university, you may have been under the impression that you’ve got the house to yourself. But suddenly, they decide to return, and you’re worried about how they’re going to react to the fact that you’ve turned their room into a gym.
In a similar vein to the granny flat, this compact convertible space could be perfect for a student residency, or even as just a bedroom with toilet facilities, so they can still live reasonably independently and could even pay you rent for the privilege.

Construction on Your Home
