- Jul 16, 2019-

1.The design aspect:

The design of the container house introduces modern house hold elements, which are arranged in a single container house as a unit. The functions of sealing, sound insulation, fire prevention, moisture proof and heat insulation are better. The design of the prefab house is based on the original materials such as steel and plate. The unit is installed on site, sealing, soundproofing, fireproofing, moisture proof, heat insulation and other functions are poor, and it is necessary to wait until the end of the installation to know the effect, which is not conducive to everyone to compare and choose.

2.The layout:

The container house is the whole layout, welded and fixed, which is more secure, more wind-resistant and more earthquake-resistant. In the event of disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes and subsidence, it will not fall apart and collapse; the prefab house is inlaid with layout and resistance is small. The foundation is not strong, the hurricane, the earthquake, etc., simply collapsed, scattered, not safe enough.

3. Moving:

The container house does not need to be dismantled, and the items in the room can move with the box, no loss, can be hoisted and moved more than 100 times, and convenient and save money; while the prefab house needs to be discretely reinstalled, the items have to be picked up properly. Moreover, each time the disassembly and assembly data is large in loss and high in cost, it is time-consuming and labor-intensive. After disassembling four or five times, it is basically scrapped.

4.The decoration aspect:

The floor of the residential container house is tiled, wall, ceiling, water and electricity, doors and windows, exhaust fan and other one-time decoration, long-term use, energy saving and beautiful; wall, ceiling, water pipes, circuits, lighting, doors and windows of the prefab house The equipment needs to be installed on site, the construction period is long, the loss is large, and it is not beautiful.

5.The installation aspect:

The resident container house can be hoisted in the whole box without the need of concrete foundation. It can be installed in 15 minutes, 1 hour, and connected to the power supply. The installation requirements of the prefab house are made of concrete foundation, building the main body, installing the wall, hanging the ceiling, and installing. Hydropower, etc., takes a long time.


The design of the container house is more humanized, and the living and working are more comfortable. The number of rooms can be added or reduced at any time, which is convenient and convenient. The prefab house has poor sound insulation and fireproof function. The living and working comfort are usually fixed after installation. Then temporarily increase or decrease the number of rooms.

Through all the above aspects, we can see that they each have their own advantages, so when choosing a temporary house, you need to choose the right house according to your own needs!
