Container Homes

There are around 20 million shipping containers in the world and well over one million of these currently lie unused in stockpiles. A 'green' use for these is for them to be converted in to homes as they are extremely strong, modular building blocks. It makes sense to 'repurpose' these containers as it takes 95% less energy to turn them into homes and buildings than it is to recycle the steel in them.

Technologies are available to overcome insulation and condensation issues, enabling the creation of chalets, workshops, student flats and contemporary homes including pre-fab opportunities.
