Shipping Containers Homes. Tuesday , April 24th , 2018 - 12:28:42 PM
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.
Another factor that will help the modifications to be made is the house`s final blueprint. When it comes to modifications there are a lot of ides you could think of. These include going for installing solar panels or you may prefer soy-based insulation or better yet choose eco-friendly amenities. Or perhaps yet you may find it attractive to remove some panels so you can have floor-to-ceiling windows. There are so many ideas on how you can modify your place but the lesser the modifications to do the easier the whole construction will be plus you won`t worry about going over your allotted construction budget.
First you need to realize that a shipping container home is definitely not a traditional house. This may seem obvious but it`s an important factor to consider. Even though homes built out of cargo containers seem really cool now you may find that the novelty wears off after a few years. Any home is a long-term investment so you need to be absolutely sure that you are happy with your potential living situation before you invest thousands of dollars into it. Even though container homes are a smart eco-friendly choice you may find yourself yearning for the comforts of a traditional home after a while. Also consider your space needs before you start construction. If you have a big family or just want a lot of bedrooms you may need multiple shipping containers to have the house of your dreams. This requires a lot more work and customization than homes that only use one cargo container.
