3 Great Benefits of Prefab Shipping Container Homes
Now that the green revolution is here and people are making efforts to cut back on the amount of CO2 they emit, people are beginning to look for alternative, cheaper and energy saving ways to own and build homes, offices, and site sheds. One of the options people are turning to is the prefab shipping container homes.
Whether you know it or not, prefabricated shipping container homes are becoming more popular. Even architects like Peter DeMaria, Silvia Mertens, Pieter Peelings and Sean Goodsell have started putting out designs for homes and offices and living/working inside these structures. And rightly so as these homes are both revolutionary and have a ton of benefits.
Can Prefab Shipping Container Homes be Refurbished as Guest Homes?
You bet they can. If you don’t have space in your home for a guest room, you can easily get one of these prefab shipping container homes, furnish it and put it in a lot near your home. Think of it as an extension of your home. Guests can visit and stay there. And there’s no limit to just how much you can creatively furnish and decorate them.
Innovative Use of Useless Shipping Containers
If we’re going to conserve the world’s remaining natural resources, this is an excellent way to begin. Australia’s ports are littered with thousands of shipping containers that won’t be used ever again unless they are used as shipping container buildings. These metal wastes contribute to the damaging of the ecosystem and pollutes the water.
But instead of allowing them rust at the docks, they can be converted into prefab shipping container homes and offices. They are eco-friendly, modular and energy saving. They can be used as temporary or remote homes, portable emergency housing units, modular container homes, basements, wine cellars, storage units, Mine site buildings or virtually anything else you can think of. There’s almost no limit to what you could do with them.
Absolutely. At cheap and affordable rates between $300 per square meter to $800 per square meter. Most Prefab Shipping Container Buildings are modular, so you can get 3 or 4 prefab shipping container homes delivered to your location and joined together.
And the best part is when you’re done using them, you can get decent resale prices for them.
Prefab shipping container homes are an excellent alternative to standard homes and office buildings.
