Container homes are becoming a popular alternative for home builders wanting something different. They are cheap, easy to build and have many eco-friendly benefits. For many excited architects and builders shipping containers are providing a new form of architecture, where containers can be used as building blocks and structural elements for houses, offices and even cities.
The structural integrity is built to withstand almost anything it encounters. The good news however is that they are in abundant supply all over the globe and we can snatch them up before the waste away in scrap yards everywhere! The term ”Containerization” is best defined as the use of steel boxes (containers) that can be filled with literally any product and loaded onto a truck train or boat. As Shipping Container Homes are becoming more popular more people are starting to turn toward living in one. However when it comes to the structural and ecological integrity there are some questions that need to be addressed. 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.
Shipping container houses can be extremely affordable. Transportation is never an issue with all of the flat bed tilt trucks and cranes available. Plus they are able to stack high vertically and survive the most horrendous weather conditions that may come our way. It does seem as if our worldwide weather is getting worse every coming year.
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.
But why shipping containers really make sense for building construction, is that they are an inherently standard, portable perfect module. So what’s so great about that? Lets start by taking a step back and looking at modular construction. Modern modular construction was born after World War II when factories sought to retool assembly lines to manufacture peace time products instead of armaments. The biggest single expense in conventional (site built) building construction was (and still is) labor. The precarious nature of building sites and uncertainty of weather and time delays, compound this expense. Add to the mix poor quality control. Modern modular construction sought to alleviate these issues by bringing the majority of a home’s construction into a controlled, factory environment. The dissection and reduction of homes and buildings into component modules transportable to sites via highway, waterway, air, or rail began.
