QUESTION:Does anyone know where I might buy a cheap 40 or 45ft shipping container house in Jamaica or where I can find a shipping container and someone who can convert it into a house?

ANSWER: by Devin, July 27

Hi Faheemah,

We are happy that you are thinking of real estate on our island paradise.

It has been a trend now in Jamaica to convert containers into houses and offices that are fully equipped with all the amenities of the regular block and steel structures we are more accustomed to.

In fact, a number of companies in Jamaica have been doing this project and these houses and offices are offered on rental or on purchase.

Knutsford Express, pictured above, is just one of the many local companies that have used shipping containers to do house their businesses.

The following company may be contacted for further information:

Kingston Logistics Centre Limited
146 First Street,
Newport West,
Kingston 11,
Jamaica W.I.

All the best!
