Hzxiaoya Shipping Container House
is becoming more popular today because they are relatively cheaper yet very sturdy and convenient to live in. The best part is that you can make your own if you really want to. You can use materials from shipping containers that are no longer being used. You can buy the things you need easily and for a reasonable price.
However, the next time you see one of these shipping containers, it may not be at or near the airport. Try looking in some neighborhoods! Yes, shipping containers will be serving a better purpose for which it was never intended: Container Home Housing.
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.
If you plan to use your containers for habitation, like becoming part of a container house or Sentry Box
and you will do a lot of modifications then you may still be in luck. If much of the container skin will be cut away or the plans call for a site built roof where the containers roof will not be expected to function then you will be able to save some money if you can find a structurally sound shipping container in "as is" condition. Make sure you inspect the corner posts and rails, if they are straight, not rusted and the unit is priced right, then go ahead and make the purchase.
