Shipping Containers Homes. Friday , April 20th , 2018 - 09:42:07 AM
Consider the fact that shipping containers are built to withstand the most unforgiving weather conditions travelling hundreds of thousands of miles aboard open-top trans-oceanic shipping-container ships... Built to have a minimum working life of 20 years before being decommissioned. After that these containers placed in a fixed position and maintained have an almost infinite lifespan.
One of the key benefits to this approach is the speed of the build - the benefits of a modular approach (joining shipping cans together) is that the build time is rapid - so rapid in fact its typically done in a fraction of the time that a standard home build would take.
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.
