The mission of Montainer is to provide sustainable and attainable housing solutions to meet the needs of the world. The cool thing about this company is that they recycle shipping containers into “modern and affordable” homes. They are even located right in the heart of Missoula!
The timeframe, according to their website, is 90 days or less to get your shipping container home, AND they even deliver and set it up for you on your property! Because the shipping containers are made of Corten steel, they are rust-resistant, so there is no need to worry about your home rusting. Their website (you can also find them on Facebook here) states that these homes are great for any climate, too, so if you live anywhere from the snowy mountains of Montana all the way to tropical coast of Florida, these could be the perfect fit for you and your family.
Here are some pretty cool pictures of examples of their Montainer homes from their website:
