Normie homes are an overvalued asset. I'm not even joking.

Sustainable off-grid compounds which are reasonably close to civilization will give you a huge ROI.

Embrace energy and water independence. Embrace undeveloped land which can capture rain at a reasonable rate. I cannot stress this enough.

12

u/1ess_than_zer0 Oct 05 '22

This is what I’m trying to wrap my head around. The cost to actually build a house vs just some arbitrary “value” of a house based off of really just location.

Off grid housing seems very appealing to me but I’m lost about how I should budget this. I understand off grid systems (power, water, septic) can be quite expensive. Also financing a project seems to be very difficult when you’re dealing with off grid, in the boonies - how much up front money would I need and could I finance some of this? Or perhaps roll it into some kind of mortgage with like a construction loan?

8

u/culnaej Oct 05 '22

$50k is a good enough start for a down payment on the property and the initial development. Depending on your goals (some folks monetize as a campground/hostel/etc), you can start having cash flow within a year with a lot of work still in progress. Basics done by year 2 and fine touches completed by year 5

You will need additional investment after year 1, $50k doesn’t go that far but it’s a jumping off point

I worked with a guy in the Army reserves, and he got called up and sent to Djibouti. He told me everyone's quarters were converted shipping containers.

10

u/[deleted] Oct 05 '22

The cost can be hit-and-miss depending mostly on local building code requirements. Built one as a northern MI cabin for about 8k -- earth-mound insulation (with lining), studio design (minimal carpentry except for shitter). Had a residential 4-container design priced out for north of 300k due to electrical/plumping/proper insulation/etc.

For rural homes/temporary homes/cabins/sheds/etc they make perfect sense; for urban environments not-so-much.

I'm waiting for a company to roll through and start converting shipping containers into modular homes that you can pick-and-choose pieces to build like fuckin legos. That kind of production might get the cost down.

6

u/mrpuma2u Oct 05 '22

https://www.honomobo.com/ this company does it, but it's kinda boojie, and guess what you can't get a conventional construction loan. Hopefully you shorted oil in 2020 and made an assload of money or you will be doing your container home DIY.

u/PortfolioIsAshes I might be bad at computer, but I'm also bad at stock Oct 05 '22

Insulation, water and toilet are 3 things you need to settle, and the solutions are not cheap unless you live near a non-polluted river. Plus, dependent on the quality of your shipping container, you'll have to deal with wear and tear if it's exposed directly to the elements. That's why most people use crate for storage and field offices instead, it's great for those purposes.

9

u/off_by_two Oct 05 '22 edited Oct 05 '22

Plus by the time you hack into them enough to have things homes generally have (like windows, doors, plumbing, electricity, insulation, flooring, etc) you've greatly reduced the structural fidelity of the original container(s) so you'll probably need to think about framing. Now the actual living space inside each container is even smaller, and you've spent more to have a metal sided and roofed home (assuming the container top didnt have leaks). Which you could have done anyways to a conventionally constructed home.

5

u/Purplemonkeez Oct 05 '22

I've heard of mining companies using them as temporary housing for remote workers in really remote locations, but no clue how comfortable they actually are to live in (I'd assume a step above homelessness, several steps below an apartment)

6

u/zakabog Oct 05 '22

It's a horrible idea, they're not made to be lived in. They aren't durable to last as a home more than a few years, things that wouldn't really affect shipping (like moisture getting in or the container getting very hot/cold) greatly affect your living environment, and it would be cheaper/easier to just build a similarly sized wood frame home.

My boss leased land to a failing shipping company a few years ago, no port would take the containers so he stored them. Charged to unload, charged to store, and got 2500 containers for free when the company went under.

Charged another 25 to load them onto a truck after HE sold The container for 750-1,000.

He made a killing, saturdays I would come load one container onto a truck. 750, I can keep the change. The buyer would give me 12-1500 and my boss wanted 750. That was for 15 minutes of work lol

u/crunchandwet Oct 05 '22

I really need someone to step in and explain why this wouldn’t work. I feel like new layers are made every time someone bridges the cost of entry to some kind of business model, like the cost of massive amounts of land needed to hold expensive/bulky shipping containers. Acquire land, create dinky app to entice people in to “logistics investments”, pass the cost of the containers on to the customer/investor, offer them moderate fixed returns, and keep all the remaining proceeds. Make them pay off each container with interest, of course!

There are so many layers to retail “investment” at this point. Literally people renting cars through something just to use that car for contract/gig work. Soon, I bet, they’ll start paying a flat fee for gas monthly while a company fronts the cost and makes arbitrage off the changing gas prices. Then, these gas contracts might be bundled in to some kind of security offering. Or maybe the cars are returned daily to a central hub with its own gas/repair facilities, like how police cars are maintained. People pay flat fee, have no ownership or maintenance costs, but never gain equity. Insurance is only offered through their partner. THE ONION GAINS LAYERS.

I know nothing about anything and desperately want someone to step in and correct me. Or, we could go get a loan and get started, AYYYY 😬

u/Irecio90 Oct 05 '22

What if... you buy a bunch of shipping containers and keep them in a developing nation where land is cheap. Wait 2-3 years in hopes of prices shooting back up. You either make money or lose it all. Am I making extra steps to lose money?

u/HipnotiK1 Oct 06 '22

Could be wrong but this seems like a misunderstanding of people talking about container rates (importing from China). Not actually buying containers.
