There are many benefits to living in a home built from used shipping containers and more and more people are starting to realise this and take action. If you are already lucky enough to have built your own and/or already live in one you`ll know these benefits first hand and will have experienced them for yourself.
In the early 1950`s in America families could buy a modest new home for around $20000 after you added in the property taxes furniture appliances and move-in costs. In today`s real estate market in the United States purchasing the same type of house in a typical middle class neighborhood might cost you around $200000 depending on the location and other factors.
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.
