Wind damage – While water damage far surpasses other forms of damage incurred from hurricanes, damages caused by high winds can also be severe. There are generally two sources of wind damage incurred during hurricanes. The first, and most obvious, is from the hurricane itself. In a strong hurricane, the wind speeds can reach upwards of 160 mph. However, the strongest winds associated with hurricanes are generally caused by tornadoes spawned by the hurricane. The winds from a strong tornado can be higher than 250 mph. A high percentage of the wind damage is actually a result of debris being hurled through the air.
Shipping containers are very durable – they are typically constructed from weathering corregated corten steel. You’ll need to look at getting this properly insulated to ensure you stay cool during hot weather and don’t freeze to death during the winter!
Create a design. Before you start buying materials, you should create a design first. Visualize the house that you want and put it on a paper. This will help you know how many cargo ships you need to build your home. You must know also that shipping containers come in fairly standard sizes. The most common ones are 45, 48 and 53 feet long. If you are near a port, you can check the sizes there. Depending on the size, they can be stacked up to 10 shipping container height. If you are having some difficulties in creating the design and the plan, you can ask help from professional architects. They can help you in determining what important aspects are needed to be considered for your home plan. They can also help you in transforming the dull shipping containers into gorgeous houses.
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.
