Pod Homes vs Container Homes NZ

Container homes are becoming more popular in New Zealand as alternatives to traditional dwellings. There are many benefits to choosing this type of home not least of which is the cost compared with a conventional house. There are, however, better options to traditional container homes.

Container homes take an item that is designed for one purpose (shipping of goods) and re-purposes it. On the other hand, Podlife’s Pod homes are a budget-friendly alternative to a container home which have been designed in mind from the ground up for Pod or tiny house living.

Why Podlife over Container Homes?

The concept of a container home might seem somewhat cold or industrial to many people and can even look a little strange. The beauty with a Podlife home is that every Pod home is internally insulated and externally galvanised to ensure all the comfort and warmth we associate with home, even in extreme weather conditions. To top it all off… they look fantastic and can be dressed up with our funky deck and cedar screen add on.
