Structurally strong and weatherproof, shipping/freight containers are an ideal base from which to construct a habitable space, without placing the same burden on the environment as conventional construction methods. Using recycled materials rather than virgin raw materials means fewer resources are consumed in the construction of your new Cube Modular shipping container home.
Shipping containers have become a very popular and versatile choice for prefab construction due to their structural stability and ability to provide a lego type build. This enables the builder and the buyer to create a very individual and unique design, not to mention the excess supply of container structures in shipping yards around the country.
The designers using them are taking an over populated resource and upcycling them to give them a useful life as a garden edition; retail outlets, home/ garden or mine site accommodation, for example.
