Steel shipping Container Prefab House, also called storage container homes, offer a fast, green, and sustainable approach to building. These intermodal steel building units are manufactured in a factory-controlled environment so they are standardized and reliable. They can be used to build an average-sized home with almost no wood.

Housing affordability constraints; population growth; lack of developable land close to amenities; time-poor lifestyles demanding low-maintenance homes all of these factors and more can be said to be aiding the boom in alternative housing options.

As the name suggests, container homes are made from shipping containers which are refitted for use as modular homes. Owing to this modular effect, container homes can be tailored to fit the size requirements of their owners.

There is a surprisingly large number of designs, sizes and uses for container properties. Houses, granny flats, shops, hotels, offices the list is virtually endless. Shipping Container Homes Australia has a gallery of photos, some featured below, that provide a great overview of the diversity of container homes and buildings, as well as resources on how to build a container home yourself .

The relatively cheap shipping container is a good foundation for a strong, mobile, and post-apocalyptic home. In the last two decades, architects have been incorporating shipping containers into everything from schools to houses for aesthetic reasons, but also out of economic necessity . Here are some of their most eye-catching creations.

A shipping container by itself is pretty boring, but even a brand new one is pretty cheap.

With a little bit of imagination (and a lot work), some talended architects s​​ucceeded to design dwellings made of shipping containers, ranging from off-the-grid guest homes to full time single family homes.

Shipping Container homes have their pros and cons: they are durable and eco-friendly , most of time cheaper to build than conventional constructions, and pre-fab modules can be easily transported by truck.

But they also have to be very well insulated and sealed as the steel conducts heat a lot and easily rusts if the air condenses against it.

You may think that living in a container home doesn't sound very appealing.

A luxury home doesn't always necessarily mean thousands of square footage, towering great rooms and gilded toilets. Take these homes for example: to begin building one of these epic houses, all you need is $2,000. That $2,000 will buy you a shipping container. What you do with that shipping container... well, that's completely up to you. Some creative people have found a way to transform this rudimentary "room" with metal siding into luxury housing kit home that blows us away.Click hzxiaoya to know more information
