As more and more of the world’s precious resources are being used up, and prices of homes get more expensive, more and more people are looking into ecologically-friendly and cost-effective ways to build or create a home. Enter the concept of versatile shipping container homes! Cheap, plentiful, and easily transportable, once its original purpose of shipping goods comes to an end, a shipping container can be easily refurbished and repurposed and used for many more years as a livable abode very successfully. From single container ‘tiny homes’ to multi-level, multi-room mansions, a shipping container home can be created in all shapes and sizes.
Using a shipping container home has many benefits. For a start, it is more ecologically friendly to reuse a shipping container rather than recycling it. Recycling shipping containers into new metal is possible, but, it is energy-intensive. Reusing shipping containers is a much more environmentally friendly option.
Secondly, shipping containers are plentiful and cheap. There are around 17 million shipping containers in circulation around the world, with new ones being built every day. And because there are so many of them that have reached the end of their shipping life, they are extremely cost-efficient. A used shipping container can be yours for as little as two thousand dollars depending on what’s available near your location.
Thirdly, they are easily transportable, modular and stackable. Need another room? Get another shipping container! Want another level? Shipping containers are designed to be stacked eight stories high. Never mind a shipping container homes. You can have a whole shipping container apartment block!
