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.
Much cheaper than conventional building methods of timber-framed buildings and brick and mortar buildings used containers are modular flexible in design (and can be made to look absolutely beautiful!) durable eco-friendly and just an all-round winner when it comes to building your own home. Over the next few paragraphs I`m going to outline some of the benefits of living in used shipping containers. Economical to build… Although the price of containers is currently on the rise (due to various factory closures in China during 2009 and early 2010) you can still pick up a fairly good bargain. As the global recession starts to ebb and global trade routes begin to get busier again the production of shipping containers will increase also. You`ll start to see container prices start to dip again or at the very least remain stable.
These modules are custom designed and sent straight to your building site, and, the companies involved are resourceful and available for question and guidance throughout the building process. These units can be used to custom build an entire house, or they can be used for additions such as detached office, kid, play, business, or hobby space. Container homes are a great option for those who need to build and remain on-site of a business project as they can be disassembled and moved to the next worksite when the project at hand is completed.
Used containers may contain traces of pesticides and other chemicals used to protect cargo during transport
Before you begin to buy the building materials, picture first what sort of house you need and look for the assistance of an expert planner to make the outline you must. This can help you in building up the vital angles that are required for your home arrangement, such as, what number of containers are required in making a home or a two-story home. This is likely the greatest speculation you have had and you need to spend your cash admirably.
