Shipping Container Home for Challenging Behaviour
Has anyone on this forum heard of shipping container homes (or perhaps other kinds of prefabricated homes) being used, or even considered, for people with challeging behviour? We have discovered shipping container homes are being adapted for physical disabilities but haven't found anything for challenging behaviour yet.
We have a 23 year old son with challenging behaviours who lives in his own home with 24/7 carers. We are investigating the possibilities of moving him to a tougher home more resistant to damage and also away from neighbours who would be disturbed by the noise he makes. Shipping container homes might offer the possibility of being tougher and perhaps more flexible over their location compared to conventional buildings, but we expect there are downsides to them as well, so are hoping to find out if anyone else has considered these before we put a lot of effort into research.
