Life In A Shipping Container?


As more and more people begin to move away from the traditional ways of building homes for more sustainable solutions, shipping containers have entered the foray. Readily available and built to withstand extreme conditions, these containers are super strong and will last a long time.

If you are like me you do not listen to the real estate agent term location, location, location. I have plans to buy a nice plot of land at some point in the future and building it off the grid would be great. Location to me means a nice plot on at least a couple of acres. I have heard and researched all sorts of sustainable building ideas but this shipping container idea is new to me.

The best place to start your search for design ideas would be Google’s image search feature. See loads of container home images here.

An Essentia mattress would be the perfect healthy fit for a container home.
