Cons: Need for an effective insulation and maybe extra roof to stay cool, as they are made of steel and this steel is an extreme heat conductor
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.
The answer: They can be as green as you want them to be.
An eco-friendly container enclosure made out of recycled shipping containers will definitely be great. In addition to being environment friendly, such homes are also affordable as these are built using recycled and reused materials. And, the overall carbon footprint is also lowered as such homes will be installed with solar panels and high-quality insulation.
One of the key benefits to this approach is the speed of the build – the benefits of a modular approach (joining shipping cans together) is that the build time is rapid – so rapid in fact its typically done in a fraction of the time that a standard home build would take.
Shipping containers are designed to be durable and long lasting. And, during their lifespan, these containers travel several thousands of miles across the world. When the shipping container owner maintains them well, it is possible to make them last for even a decade. But as we live in a disposable society, people trend to replace old things when they buy new ones. This applies to the shipping containers as well.
