There are so many benefits to living small. For one, you have way less cleaning to do. How easy would it be to only have to mop and vacuum one room? There’s also the added benefit of saving money, as running a micro home requires far less heat and power.
Shipping container conversions are only one way to build your own small home but it has so many benefits.
Shipping containers are recycled goods, so using a shipping container that would otherwise go to scrap is a good way to be eco-friendly and recycle existing materials to help save the environment.
They’re also a super sturdy structural option. Containers are built to withstand the weather and be durable, watertight and fire-resistant, soyou already have solid foundations to begin your project.
Their durability also makes them super safe. You would have a hard time breaking and entering a shipping container, making them a good option for those wanting a secure space, something that is very important for where you’re living.
You don’t have to stick to just one container as well. Shipping containers are stackable, so you can create a multi-level, modular home that is both modern and functional. This grand design home was created by stacking shipping containers and is a beautiful example of how you can create a lovely home from containers.
