he started to build emergency boxes and moved on building mobile hospitals out of
There are a lot of advantages to shipping containers whether you want to build a coffee
shop, a chicken farm, a hospital or a house. IQ Home structures are already built, and
you could never build that quality on site.
"Shipping containers are simple structures, but they are incredibly strong," says Majid.
Accordingly, building with them requires special tools and very specific skills. "Design a
shipping container home is an art and everything we've worked on has set us up
perfectly for this."
From the engineering perspective, both Majid and Ehsan are passionate about shipping
containers, but more importantly, they are passionate about the idea of home. The
preliminary design was quoted by Majid, designed and manufactured by both of us.
We've lived all over the world and know that "home" is important to people everywhere,
and there are many different ideas of what it looks like," says Majid. "Shipping
containers make sense to us as a way to give more people the homes they deserve.
