Consider the fact that shipping containers are built to withstand the most unforgiving weather conditions travelling hundreds of thousands of miles aboard open-top trans-oceanic shipping-container ships… Built to have a minimum working life of 20 years before being decommissioned. After that these containers placed in a fixed position and maintained have an almost infinite lifespan.
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.
At the development site, begin evaluating work, for example, the required exhuming for building the establishment, storm water administration, septic, and utilities (electrical, water and gas supply lines). Prefab container homes should be legitimately protected so that the right temperature inside the home is kept up, not very hot amid summer and not very chilly amid winter season.
A lot of people are looking into using recycled cargo containers as a material source for building homes. They certainly are a green alternative to other materials and using them does a lot of good for the recycling community. We don`t notice it very much but there are quite a lot of unused empty cargo containers sitting at ports all around the world doing nothing but taking up space. Or worse yet being sent off to landfill.
Though container housing a new concept, the popularity and public interest in them is growing rapidly in many countries. The obvious economic benefits, with the green eco-friendly practices of recycling and sustainability, create a lot of opportunity for modern architects and builders to develop and improve the container home concept.
This is the Ecopod. A smaller but energy-eco-efficient way for a homeowner to get away from the crazy things in the world. This shipping container home is easily transported and secure plus safe enough to leave in remote areas for longer periods of time. Every single Ecopod derives its power by an 80-watt solar panel, the flooring is made with rubber used from recycled tires and insulated with a soy-based product for the cold.
