Shipping Containers Homes. Friday , April 20th , 2018 - 09:51:32 AM
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.
These are stacked vertically on four different floors. These highly talented Belgian architects Pieter Peelings and Silvia Mertens of Sculp(IT) have designed a compact home for living. Every one of the 4 rooms serves a specific function and purpose. Starting from the bottom up there is a spiral staircase which links a work floor then a kitchen/dining room floor the living room floor and on the highest floor a bedroom and bathroom.
The newest craze in eco-friendly building is shipping container homes. These unique houses use new or used cargo containers as their primary construction material. And since these shipping containers are cheap and plentiful you can build your very own shipping container house for a surprisingly low cost.
