The newest craze in eco-friendly building is shipping container homes. These unique houses use new or used cargo containers as their primary construction material. And since these shipping containers are cheap and plentiful, you can build your very own shipping container house for a surprisingly low cost.
Thinking about building a house out of shipping containers? There is a lot of talk about this trend these days and the fans of this building method are increasing in number. A big part of the reason for the growing interest is that there are a lot of container houses now that look incredible. This building style could still be considered somewhat 'cutting edge' (though it's been around for decades), and there are many factors to consider. I have compiled a list of shipping container pros and cons as food for thought for anybody learning about this building style.
