Buying the container is giving you an empty canvas to work with. The 6th one (4 containers, stacked 2 high) is probably the cheapest of the designs shown here. Approximate cost for the 4 containers, $10,000. Then add another $4000 for the windows and doors (the visible ones, don’t know about the other sides). So you are already around $14000.
