Living in these days can mean a lot more that just having a shelter, food and clothing. People have evolved a lot in the last 50 years and the trend is of an exponential growth. The differences between generations will be more significant than there are now. As a proof that people have already started to change their minds and philosophy are the random bursts of nonconformism, meaning that some people no longer feel represented by the masses, and their image can’t be associated with an institution of a large group of people.
Part of the nonconformism I was talking about is the residential component. People live in more and more diverse houses that suit best their needs. Some people buy large houses with concrete structures or steel and glass to reinforce their social position and other people choose something different but always a place that suits their needs. A crazy idea is to live in a container. Yes, you’ve heard me, those cargo containers represent now for some people a part of their home ,or even the entire household. Don’t rush into conclusions yet, let’s take a look at some wonderful structures and then let’s draw a conclusion together. Lets just remember the average cargo container costs about $2000 USD. We also included a couple of business locations that utilized this concept just to show what it could do.
Shipping Container Guest House.
One of the most interesting projects I’ve seen so far is this wonderful guest house made out from a recycled shipping container. Because of the container’s nature not a wide range of possibilities is available to decorate it, but people take this always as a challenge and in this case it turned out great actually. The container was painted blue and two sections were cut and windows and big sliding doors were mounted.
