We love homes made using recycled shipping containers. We love home styles that are not covered on the outside, meaning shipping containers are visible.
This situation, which we mentioned above, may slightly reduce the usable area because all insulation is made inside the house. For this, we don’t see too many containers in some projects.
But in the house we will show you today, the insulation and other processes are completely inside. In some of the outer parts of the house, only visual panels were used.
Container architecture has been increasing rapidly in the world recently. With shipping containers, you can reveal the project in your mind much more easily than classical architecture.
Most importantly, while doing this, you save time and money compared to a house built with traditional methods. As this is the case, shipping containers are being adopted more and more as alternative building materials lately.
Located in St. Charles, Illinois, this container house was built by Group3 Construction. The house, in which 7 shipping containers are used in its construction, consists of 2 floors.
The containers stand on the basement made of concrete. The basement includes an 800-square-foot wide garage and storage space.
The container house, designed in a modern way to meet the needs of a family of four, has 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms.
I would like to go back to the outer part of the house we mentioned at the beginning of our article. The container house has a very clean and modern stance with little touches added on the existing container look.
Living in a Container explores all the container houses in the world for your valuable readers and shares them for your ideas.
