The containers are obviously not designed for building homes, they are used to transport goods for commercial purposes. Their steel structure was fabricated to withstand the weather and sea travel, resulting in their incredible dexterity. While their life can easily reach 30 years, they are often abandoned after 10, so you can reuse them.
There are about 30 million containers that have been abandoned by the transport companies. You can get one of them in good condition for about $2000. Although only one container may seem quite small, it is possible to buy several of them and assemble them as you see fit.
