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.
Remember, when you were younger and loved to build pretend homes and forts? As an adult the Container architecture is growing because there hundreds of thousands of shipping containers in places all over the world. Usually in docking ports and stacks of shipping containers are piled up wasting away to literally nothing. Some very ingenious architects and builders are recycling these containers and designing homes and low income apartments out of them worldwide.
Have you ever considered looking into shipping container homes? If the answer is yes, then you are in for a real surprise. For starters, shipping container homes are the most environmentally stable and sound form of home development on the market today.
There are many benefits to living in a home built from used shipping containers and more and more people are starting to realise this and take action. If you are already lucky enough to have built your own and/or already live in one you`ll know these benefits first hand and will have experienced them for yourself.
Manufacturers of goods and the shipping companies that ship those goods see them as disposable items throwaways just like the soda cans so many consumers still don`t see value in. It`s actually rather expensive for countries to ship unused and empty containers back to their country of origin and quite often it`s cheaper to buy new containers when the need for them arise. Costs for cargo containers vary but on average you can get a used one for about $1500. The average container has about 350 square feet of space. Someone who wants a 3000 square foot home would have to pay approximately $80 per square foot to have a home built using traditional methods. In some parts of the U.S. it costs well over $100 per square foot. Container homes cost about four and a half dollars per square foot (the cost is just for the frame not including the construction and finishing work). But do the calculations and you`ll see the basic (frame only) cost for a 3000 square foot home built from recycled containers is about $13500. Even with the added cost of having to configure and finish the basic units to make them into a home it`s still quite a savings over traditional home building methods.
The trend has grown so that in the last few years, the history of the product has been forgotten, but the benefit of the choice lives on. To begin, recycling these containers is a great contribution to the green movement of the last decade, but other modern conveniences can be enjoyed as well. The homes are of high quality, relatively affordable, moveable/transportable, and can be used for a vast number of projects for your home, for your business, or for your business expansion needs.
