What Will It Cost?

Container homes & projects vary in price depending on your requirements. Most projects are custom made and there are many factors which affect the price. Use the FREE ESTIMATE tool below to get an idea of price.

A bare container without anything done will start at around THB 33,000 – 66,000 (USD $1000 – $2,000), you then need to rust proof the unit, add flooring, walls, plumbing, electrics and all the other things to turn it onto a home.

As a very “Rough” guide you should budget for between THB 15,000 – 20,000 per square meter for a fully completed home with all appliances and other items such as fitted Kitchen, Bathrooms, Air Conditioning Etc.
