The shipping container home theme is getting larger and growing evermore each and every day. There are now over half a million containers in places all over the globe. Usually seen in docking ports by airports, when you cruise by on major highways near big popular cities, you always seem to notice gigantic stacks of shipping containers which are piled up rotting away to basically nothing but scrap metal garbage. Today,there are many more ingenious architects then there were in the past including construction workers and builders whom are all recycling these containers and engineering container houses and low income dwellings out of these amazing useful metal boxes.
The Container City
But before you make the choice to construct your very own container home, there are a few things you should consider. Just because container homes are becoming very popular with the green building set doesn’t necessarily mean that you should make the plunge yourself. You need to think about your personal needs, your financial situation, and local building codes before you make the investment of building your own container home.
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.
In the meantime, many of us have heard about recent proposed changes that affect the RV regulations, namely FR-5877-P-01. To sum it up in simple words, there were articles and videos making reference to the Government HUD Rule Could Prohibit Use of Tiny House as Dwelling Domicile Primary Residence. But nothing farther from the truth, as the regulations being proposed refer to Recreational Vehicles only. Basically, Recreational Vehicles are exactly that and nothing more. RVs are for recreation and are not to be used more than 30 consecutive days as implied in primary residences. RVs are not ruled by HUD, they fall under a different set of regulations.
