Sustainable Alternative to Traditional Home Construction

Shipping container homes are a fast, green and sustainable alternative to traditional home construction. These intermodal steel building units (ISBUs) can easily be stacked together to create a home of any size.
Shipping container homes can be built to withstand many different climates and are very durable. They are also easy to maintain, and with proper preventative care they can last for decades. However, they can be prone to rusting if not properly protected. This is easily avoided, though, with a good exterior paint and water drainage systems.

The designers of this shipping container home took great care to ensure that the house blended seamlessly into its natural surroundings. The house is elevated above ground level, and the windows are placed at the level of the treetops. This allows the residents to enjoy a view of the surrounding vegetation while staying warm and comfortable.
This container home is the perfect example of how modern and stylish a metal shipping container can be. The home is designed to be comfortable and spacious, with enough space for one bedroom, a kitchen, and a living room. It also features a small terrace and is ready to work with solar panels.
The architecture of this house is so beautiful that it's hard to tell that it was built from a series of shipping containers. This wide-open floor plan demonstrates that shipping container homes can be as spacious as any other structure.
The home was designed to take advantage of the site's sloping terrain, and the shipping containers were critical in allowing the structure to bridge over points that traditional buildings couldn't. The builders also used the containers' structural quality to save on costs by building in a manner that minimized the need for foundations and other costly elements.
Although many skeptics question the practicality of shipping container homes, the fact remains that they can offer a viable alternative to traditional building materials. Not only are they affordable and environmentally friendly, but because they are prefabricated in a factory, they can also be delivered to the construction site much more quickly than a house that is built on-site.
A pair of containers house the main living spaces, with one interconnected to form a kitchen and the other hosting a bedroom. The interiors have been kept light and airy using minimalist decoration products to create a cheerful atmosphere.
