When speaking in perspective about the horrendous economy, many want-to-be home owners are triple checking costs and prices and keeping an ear open for any kind of discount or savings on construction labor and costs, maintenance reduction, and holding onto any or all of the equity in their pockets. So, when it becomes a possibility to construct a cool looking, secured, modern house with the typical classic great looks of the case study houses of the mid 20th Century, for a small chunk of the price of traditional construction, people start to get interested.
Most standard ISO steel shipping containers are made of heavy gauge steel and are impossible to break into, unless you have an electric saw with a steel bid and electricity and you plan on making a lot of noise.
There are few shipping container companies that specialize just in security reasons alone. In Costa Rica, there seems to be a growing trend in security for homes because of petty theft. I have been there and have seen many homes with steel or iron cages over the windows. One thing really nice about container homes is that usually the container is made of corrugated steel and are real safe.
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.
And don’t be fooled into expecting that you’ll be left with shabby interiors – oh no! Shipping container homes can be fully kitted out with beautiful interiors featuring modern designs resulting in a truly beautiful finish. And of course the basics of standard Plumbing and electrics are also fitted.
One major way to reduce the carbon footprint and take care of the Earth is through recycling. There are many materials that can be recycled such as paper, glass, metals and plastic. When it comes to the construction industry, using the shipping containers for building is the best way to save the environment.
