There are so many different ways to use a storage container. Because of the cost and durability of used shipping containers, what was once a highly useful piece of transportation equipment is today being used in the most creative and fascinating ways possible.The most common types of standard storage containers come in either side opening, high cube or general-purpose and vary greatly in size, which can be anything from a mere 10 feet right up to a massive 45 feet in length. All these can be used for the following applications and more:
Container Homes– People are now building trendy homes, cabins, and portable offices of all shapes and sizes from steel shipping containers. This comes as part of a wide spread interest in saving money with prefabricated and/or modular homes. They are not only lower in construction and maintenance costs, but container homes are also seen to uniquely contribute to environmental conservation. You can almost think of it as recycling, you’re putting to good use this container that would have been maybe just sitting in the elements rusting away for the rest of its’ life.
