Built tough from weathering corrugated steel these incredible tough building blocks of international trade are designed to withstand stacking stuffing and strapping and are reused over and over again. There is an estimate of over 18 million of these containers floating riding and flying around the earth today but the most recent sustainable design trend has found these containers revamped to contain a more delicate cargo: People.
Before you start to weigh your options on homebuilding and purchase, you must know what container homes are. These mobile home alternatives were first made in a green response to the abundance of shipping containers ending up docked on our shores. As we, the United States, began to benefit from the inexpensive price of importing some goods, we also began to be the recipients of shipping byproducts. Companies began using the container products in renovations, additions, and other projects, and the trend has grown into a green frenzy. These units can be used for a number of projects including, but not limited to, your dream of a custom built home.
Of course it does take a bit of construction work to fix up these steel containers including installing insulation, plumbing, electrical, windows and doors. Yet, when all is said and done, the homes are made from recycled materials, cheap and unique. And this is just what many green home owners are looking for right now.
To begin with, container homes are very stable and complete. One of the best on the market today. By using only a small percentage of your usual materials to build most typical homes, costs and labor to actually create one of these is amazing when compared to the ever inconsistent price increases of your average home today.
Once you buy the containers you need to make suitable arrangements to transport them. Try and buy locally so you don’t have to ship the containers long distance which adds to the cost. You will need the service of a crane to place the containers in place at the vacant lot where you plan to have your home. Get the crane to place the containers in the exact position needed as shifting containers is almost impossible to do without the help of these heavy moving equipment.
