2-Story Container House for $35.000

Homeowners have increasingly been spending time on home improvement projects in recent months.

This is likely due to the pandemic, as people are looking for ways to improve their lives and make their homes more comfortable and secure.

Container homes are often seen as a more sustainable and affordable option, as they can be recycled and reused.

Container homes can be customised to fit any need, and there are now many companies that offer them as a prefabricated product.

While the number of homes built with shipping containers is growing rapidly in America, the situation is not much different in the rest of the world.

Maria Victoria Evangelista is the owner of a two-story container house built in Davao, Philippines.

Maria Victoria mentioned in a Facebook post she shared that she could not go anywhere due to the pandemic. This gave him the idea to build a house for himself using old shipping containers, she said.

Concrete blocks were placed under the containers at 3m intervals, thus disconnecting the containers from the ground. – Image Courtesy of Maria Victoria Evangelista

The tiny home movement has been gaining popularity in recent years, as more and more people look for ways to downsize and simplify their lives.

One clever way to build a tiny home is to repurpose a shipping container. These large steel boxes are sturdy and weatherproof, and can easily be transformed into a cozy living space.

Maria Victoria is one woman who has taken advantage of this trend.

She recently built a small home out of a used shipping containers, and furnished it entirely with reused furniture and decor.

The result is a charming and sustainable home. In a world where the average new home costs over thousands of dollars, projects like this are an inspiring reminder that it is possible to live.
