Over the past few years, shipping container homes have become increasingly popular, and for good reason: they are strong, durable, inexpensive, environmentally friendly (compared to traditional materials), and can be designed modularly. 2006 saw the first two-story shipping container home designed by a California architect. Since then, shipping containers have been used to build temporary hotels, shopping centers and some amazing homes.
Why should you consider building a house out of shipping containers?WEIZHENGHENG shares for you.
The average weight of a container is about 3500 kg. Used containers not only allow easy access to homes, but also reduce the need for bricks and cement. It reduces construction water consumption and concrete loss by about 60%, reduces construction waste and renovation waste by about 70%, saves about 50% of energy, and increases overall productivity by about 2-3 times.
This is a very sensible point. For their original transportation purpose, shipping containers are designed to carry heavy loads and stack. They can also withstand harsh conditions. A normal house may blow up after a hurricane or other natural disaster, but if the container containers are properly secured to the foundation pad, they can survive strong winds.
Many used containers are far less than the number needed to actually set them up. Not only that, but you can save significantly on building larger, more expensive foundations. Even buying a brand new container is relatively inexpensive, considering the labor costs are much less.
The whole idea of container housing started as an affordable housing solution. Over the years, hundreds of affordable container homes have been built, some of which cost less than 60,000 RMB.
Containers are the Lego blocks of construction. Combining containers into larger structures simplifies design, planning and transportation. It also allows for a home that can grow with you.
