While used containers are typically the choice for this purpose, new ones can be used as well. These containers can be used individually to create tiny homes, or they can be welded together or stacked to build much larger spaces. Single-family homes as well as multi-tenant apartment buildings can be constructed using these modular steel boxes. As mentioned earlier, they can even be used to construct student housing.

A container home is built out of these containers, but that’s just the beginning. After necessary alterations are made, the result is a stylish and comfortable dwelling.

Shipping containers are designed to bear heavy loads, withstand harsh climatic conditions, as well as rough seas and can also easily be stacked one on top of the other to create multi-story homes. Their structural stability makes such homes earthquake and hurricane proof, which makes them extremely safe for natural disaster-prone areas.
