In an effort to provide Nigerians with more affordable housing options, a company called Tempohousing Nigeria is turning old ISO shipping containers into cozy homes. With shorter build times and lower construction costs, the shipping container apartments are a viable alternative to traditional homes.
Tempohousing Nigeria is a joint venture between Tempohousing Global and Ampersam Network Associates. The company focuses on building homes for three specific markets, which include student housing, staff housing and residential housing. Shipping container homes are ideal for these types of customers as construction is a straightforward and quick process. The homes can also be easily dismantled and moved if necessary.
With many Nigerian cities growing at a rapid pace, Tempohousing Nigeria's shipping container apartments are a easy and cost-effective solution to the current lack of affordable housing.
