It is a great thing that people are becoming highly concerned about the environment and the planet. There are stringent efforts taken by people to take care of the planet in all aspects. With the increased awareness about the environment, people have started focusing on reducing the carbon footprint that actually ruins the environment.
Next, think about the total costs associated with building a cargo container home. Shipping containers by themselves are relatively cheap, but it takes a lot of time and labor to transform it into a cozy home. You will also need to ship the container to your building site, which might be more expensive than you think. Foundation work also needs to be done, which tacks on extra cost. Before you purchase a shipping container for your new home, consult with a knowledgeable building contractor who can accurately calculate your total cost. An even better option is to work with a company that specializes in cargo container architecture. They will have an expert opinion on everything you will need to do, and they might even be able to sell you a container for your home and make all of the modifications you need ahead of time. By dealing with one company, you can be sure of what all of your costs will be, since you will not need to reconcile quotes from different vendors and contractors.
The Container City
Shipping container homes are very affordable, transportable and stackable and able to survive the worst weather conditions mother nature has for us. They are structurally built to withstand almost anything and in abundant supply almost in every country today.
But now many people looking to buy a new home are buying them for the same price as their parents or grandparents did in the 1950`s at around $20000. The difference is they`re buying homes not make of wood or traditional materials. They`re buying shipping container homes. That`s right-homes made from used steel containers that once carried merchandise on large ships. And they`re not what you would first imagine. These are nice desirable homes.
Shipping containers are readily available, cheap to purchase. Durable, modern in aesthetics, crisp, and straight. Their monocoque body makes them solid, yet easy to cut and reinforce allowing openings for space planning and penetrations. Their floor load capacity is extreme, far exceeding what is required for a home. They are stackable to 6 units ( higher if empty and cross braced). If you are here, you have read and learned much of their promise already.
