Remember those days when you were younger and loved to build pretend homes and forts usually made out of cardboard or blankets? As a grownup, the Container house era is growing because there are hundreds of thousands of shipping containers in places all over the globe. Usually in docking ports, when you drive by on major highways near major cities and stacks of shipping containers are piled up wasting away to literally nothing but scrap looking garbage.
There are a select few of very ingenious architects, construction workers and builders whom are recycling these containers and designing container houses and low income apartments out of these incredible useful metal drums. They are comfortable, safe, environmentally friendly and may even qualify for tax rebates when you efile in April.
Shipping container houses are very affordable, transportable and are able to stack high plus survive the worst weather conditions mother nature has for us. Doesn’t it seem as if our worldwide weather is getting worse of late?
They are structurally built to withstand almost anything. The best news of all is that they are in abundant supply almost in every country today just wasting away in shipping container scrap yards everywhere!
Containerization is best explained as the use of steel boxes (containers) that can be filled with literally any product and loaded onto a truck, train or boat. Never should you be concerned about these running out because there are infinite containers to go around for many years to come. Countless amounts of these in the thousands hit American shores each and every day of the year, including almost every other country as well.
