Container House History

Shipping containers in the United States, when indicating the importation of goods, products and services, is incredibly 61% above the peak than the exportation process.

The elements of imported goods, materials and products, when created, is known as a trade deficit. The United States alone is purchasing such a gigantic quantity of products from other countries and areas of the world that these container units or ISBU's are literally inventing a new but old waste disposal problem and large environmental issue. A vast quantity of these cargo steel containers are arriving from China.

The biggest element of the Shipping container industry and its use is that of transportation of goods throughout the world. Products need to be placed inside so that they can be shipped literally anywhere a cargo ship can carry them to.

However, one problem is that these voyages that the containers go through are usually "One Trips" with a No-Return! What this means is that they are used the majority of the times only ONCE therefore starting to pile up at major city and coastal ports all over the place. Financial studies indicate that it costs more to pay for these units to be on a round trip so they wind up rotting in these ports creating the environmental hazard and ugly eyesore for us to see.

      If you are considering modular or prefab home, building with recycled shipping containers is worth taking a look at.

      Good resource is the Residential Shipping Container Primer website. A SHOWCASE OF SHIPPING CONTAINER HOMES AND BUILDINGDS, AND A DO IT YOURSELF (DIY) REFERENCE FOR CONVERTING RECYCLED INTERMODAL CARGO SHIPPING CONTAINERS INTO BUILDINGS AND ARCHITECTURE.

      Lots of great example buildings, details, facts, and links to other articles. They have something new that you can setup your own project wiki to get help with your project if you are considering a design build project.
