– re-using old containers seems like a terrific method of re-cycling. But the truth remains that shipping containers are method over engineered to be a home.

– containers are extremely resilient as they’re created for use at sea. the structure of your house could be up in a few days. But only after lengthy engineers reports and reinforce works etc. have actually been brought out. Accessibility – containers are fairly plentiful and simple to get. – as they’re steel they’ll transfer heat extremely rapidly, so in hot climates they can overheat and in cold climates they can be extremely cold.
