In the 20th century mankind made a great step forward in its technical and industrial evolution. Rapid quantitative and qualitative development of multiple industries has moved our lifestyle to an absolutely new level. But what is the price for that evolution? Unfortunately, today we face some of the price tags we failed to recognize in the past: devastated rainforests, ozone holes, global warming, and exhausted natural fuel resources.
Building a house is no small feet. Even a small one. There are thousands of materials, pieces, and tasks involved. Unless you are a builder or experienced it’s intimidating. But, what containers as perfect modules allow you to do, is simplify the entire process. Think of a typical 1,000 square foot house. Try and work through in your head the total length of timber for the framing, square footage of sheathing, number of floor joists required, and ceiling rafters. Can’t do it. Not too many can. Now think about that 1,000 square foot house made out of shipping containers. It’s 3 forty foot containers. By reducing the house into 3 base component pieces (modules), it’s much easier to understand, design, and build.
Designing an environment friendly home is possible with the use of shipping containers. These container enclosures are considered to be building blocks that are stacked together similar to the building blocks that children play with. These can be stacked either side by side or one on top of the other as per the requirement. It is possible to build a custom living space by creating large open rooms. This is possible to achieve by placing the containers side by side and taking off the internal walls.
Much cheaper than conventional building methods of timber-framed buildings, and brick and mortar buildings, used containers are modular, flexible in design (and can be made to look absolutely beautiful!), durable, eco-friendly, and just an all-round winner when it comes to building your own 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.
A lot of individuals in today’s time are embracing the idea of building shipping container homes, thanks to the many faces of innovation.
