There are many great reasons why you may want to turn a shipping container into a house. The tiny house movement is growing at a rapid rate alongside the freedom that minimalist living provides.
5 reasons why turning a shipping container into a house is a great idea
Shipping containers are stackable
The stackability of shipping containers is a massive pro when considering building a shipping container home. You can grow your property with additional rooms, enjoy a functioning rooftop balcony or create space underneath for something like a porch.
They are durable
Shipping containers are designed to be transported on ships which means consideration has already gone into their durability. They carry lots of different items and travel across the world making them watertight and weather-resistant.
Your shipping container house can grow with your family or your needs
If you plan on growing your family or you need additional space in the future, building a modular house that gives you the option to add-on to it is a perfect solution.
Flexible interior space
Shipping container homes provide flexible interior space that keeps you in control. You can design it around your needs. Plan your bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and storage to make it entirely functional alongside the aesthetic that best represents you.
They look awesome!
During your research you have probably seen many containers of different colours and arrangements. No matter how you plan or build your containers, you’re guaranteed to end up with a really unique aesthetic and a home you are proud to show off.
Whether you’d like to convert a shipping container into a house, a garden room, a storage solution or something else, it can be entirely designed around you. Modular eco build homes are also very popular to create more space and flexibility.
