Shipping Containers Homes. Friday , April 20th , 2018 - 11:06:20 AM
Adapting the utilization of shipping containers in the construction of homes makes sturdy living spaces not to mention they are very affordable. This innovation is known to some as alternative housing whereas others called it green architecture while some branded it as cargotecture. Building them couldn`t be tagged a just a walk in the park though.
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.
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.
