The container apartments with a unique twist
Shipping containers converted into unique hotels to allow people to test out what it’s really like to live in a container
Did you know that you can actually live in a shipping container? Yep, as bizarre as that may sound it is true and you may be surprised to realise just how stunning shipping container homes can look. The container, a metal box designed to ship and store goods around the world – why would anyone want to live in one you may ask? Well for a start they are incredibly cost effective and can be shipped from one location to another much easier than a normal home. They can also be eco-friendly and highly customisable – there are numerous container home projects popping up and there are even luxury container homes that you would never even realise where made using shipping containers. It’s fair to say then that containers are a viable option for anyone looking for a new home or living space.
