Abigail. Shipping Containers Homes. May 12th , 2018.
Remember when you were younger and loved to build pretend homes and forts? As an adult the Container architecture is growing because there hundreds of thousands of shipping containers in places all over the world. Usually in docking ports and stacks of shipping containers are piled up wasting away to literally nothing. Some very ingenious architects and builders are recycling these containers and designing homes and low income apartments out of them worldwide. Shipping container homes are very affordable transportable and stackable and able to survive the worst weather conditions mother nature has for us. They are structurally built to withstand almost anything and in abundant supply almost in every country today. Containerization is best defined as the use of steel boxes that can be filled with literally any product and loaded onto a truck or train. If you are concerned about these running out no need to worry because there are infinite containers to go around. Tens of thousands of these hit American shores each and every day of the year as well as almost every other country. Lets understand something here. The prices of homes today has sky rocketed to the heavens. As time goes on more and more people can not afford a typical living environment. Struggling with mortgages and taxes to pay off their house why not look into a shipping container as a home for yourself? When you were a kid most of us would make prefab homes out of blankets or cardboard. As we grow older those blanket homes are now shipping container homes.
The structural integrity is built to withstand almost anything it encounters. The good news however is that they are in abundant supply all over the globe and we can snatch them up before the waste away in scrap yards everywhere! The term "Containerization" is best defined as the use of steel boxes (containers) that can be filled with literally any product and loaded onto a truck train or boat. As Shipping Container Homes are becoming more popular more people are starting to turn toward living in one. However when it comes to the structural and ecological integrity there are some questions that need to be addressed. To begin with container homes are very stable and complete. One of the best on the market today. By using only a small percentage of your usual materials to build most typical homes costs and labor to actually create one of these is amazing when compared to the ever inconsistent price increases of your average home today.
And don`t be fooled into expecting that you`ll be left with shabby interiors - oh no! Shipping container homes can be fully kitted out with beautiful interiors featuring modern designs resulting in a truly beautiful finish. And of course the basics of standard Plumbing and electrics are also fitted.
Shipping container houses can be extremely affordable. Transportation is never an issue with all of the flat bed tilt trucks and cranes available. Plus they are able to stack high vertically and survive the most horrendous weather conditions that may come our way. It does seem as if our worldwide weather is getting worse every coming year.
