Shipping Containers Homes. Friday , April 20th , 2018 - 09:17:53 AM
Shipping containers can easily hold out against windspeeds of up to 175mp/h (281km/h) when anchored with pylons...which is easily done. Every building should have suitable foundations whether it be from used shipping containers or a traditional build.
A lot of people are looking into using recycled cargo containers as a material source for building homes. They certainly are a green alternative to other materials and using them does a lot of good for the recycling community. We don`t notice it very much but there are quite a lot of unused empty cargo containers sitting at ports all around the world doing nothing but taking up space. Or worse yet being sent off to landfill.
So far the most popular places for building cargo container homes has been in parts of Asia and in the former Soviet Union. But recently shipping container houses have started showing up in the United States specifically in southern California.
