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.
It’s amazing to think that the shipping container that brought your TV from overseas can now be the home that you live in.
Faster and Easier to Build
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.
Besides being restricted to homes, the shipping containers can be used for container site office structures as well. It is possible to weld the containers together to create a multiple story structure that is sturdy. People can create bespoke homes that are unique and eco-friendly with shipping containers.
