Shipping Containers Homes. Tuesday , April 24th , 2018 - 10:08:42 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.
But before you make the choice to construct your very own container home there are a few things you should consider. Just because container homes are becoming very popular with the green building set doesn`t necessarily mean that you should make the plunge yourself. You need to think about your personal needs your financial situation and local building codes before you make the investment of building your own container home.
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.
