As more and more people need to be self-sufficient and environmentally friendly, the houses are beginning to make a new turn for greener. Shipping container homes use leftover steel boxes used for overseas shipping. But now they are becoming beautifully designed houses and living spaces instead of dark rooms full of objects.
This trend began shortly after 2000, when many people became aware of the increasing number of containers in ports. They are sold at incredibly low prices and are ideal for creating cheap spaces. They offer the added benefit of using recycled material and avoiding waste. The typical box is 20 to 40 feet long, 8 feet wide and 8 1/2 feet high.
There are many advantages to using one of them to create a home or refuge. They are almost indestructible for beginners and are made of corten steel, which does not rust. They are also resistant to mold and have a plywood floor that can carry tons of weight. These things are designed to protect the load from hurricanes, hurricanes, typhoons, floods, lightning, and everything that Mother Nature decided to throw in the right direction.
