Alternative Use Buildings

HighCube Homes shipping container buildings are incredibly versatile, and can be applied to many uses. 

University campus lodgings, hotels, school buildings, holiday homes, community buildings, care home communities, Granny annexes/retirement homes, garden rooms, man-caves/she-sheds, shops and cafés, extending your existing home – and pretty much anything else you could imagine.

Take a look at some of these alternative use designs we have worked on.

Garden Buildings

For smaller garden buildings, such as extra bedrooms, home offices, garden gyms or similar, we have designs that utilise a single 20ft container.

These units are priced on application. Expect to pay around £25,000 for a fully fitted building of this size.

Shipping Container School Building

Designed for use as a temporary music room, this school building is constructed using a single 40ft HighCube shipping container, with an open-plan interior, fully insulated and clad, as an affordable building solution with a super fast turnaround time.

For larger versions, two 40ft shipping containers would provide a perfect solution.
