A container home is a type of residence that is constructed using shipping containers as the primary building material. Shipping containers are large, steel boxes that are used to transport goods by ship, rail, or truck. They are typically 8 feet wide and 8.5 feet tall, and come in standard lengths of 20 or 40 feet.
The idea of using shipping containers as a building material was first proposed in the late 20th century as a way to recycle and repurpose the thousands of unused containers that were piling up in ports around the world. Container homes can be constructed using one or multiple shipping containers, depending on the desired size and layout of the home. Container homes are often praised for their durability, low cost, and sustainability. They can be easily transported and can be placed on any foundation type. They can also be easily modified or expanded upon, and can be outfitted with electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems, just like a traditional home.
