Containers Used For Large Scale Residential Builds In recent years, housing in populated cities is increasingly becoming a luxury.
To keep up with high housing demands and cries for affordable housing, developers and homeowners have had to think outside the box, quite literally! One way homeowners are meeting their needs is by hunting for unconventional solutions. Transform shipping containers into housing projects from the ground up! Tiny homes are a popular trend and work well with single shipping containers, but tiny homes aren’t the only housing solution that can come from old containers. You can use multiple shipping containers to craft full-size or large-scale residential builds.
Shipping containers have been used to transport products across the seas since 1956. They are made from solid steel, which makes them very durable. In 1987, a man named Phillip Clarke began transforming these shipping containers into habitable spaces. Design concepts saw shipping containers transformed into diverse buildings from office spaces to entire hostel buildings in the years that followed. Shipping container buildings began to gain real traction soon after. In the late 00s and early 10s, shipping container home construction continued to gain popularity and praise for unique appearances and unbound creativity.
Shipping container homes offer a unique space set apart from typical architecture due to its unconventional building materials. Shipping containers come in standard sizes, both 20 ft and 40 ft sizes. The designs that talented planners and engineers can create with shipping containers are highly diverse despite the standard sizing. In some arrangements, panels are taken out to create an open floor plan or include doorways. Containers can be lined up or stacked to bring just about any floor plan imaginable to fruition.
By nature, shipping containers are excellent in a number of adverse weather conditions. The containers are made from steel, making them extremely durable in wind, rain, snow, and non-combustible. Coatings and paints are applied to prevent the metal from rusting, which does a great job.
