Shipping Containers Converted Into Accomodation.

Friday, 10th July 2009
Shipping containers make the ideal base for conversion into accommodation units whether permanent or temporary. Containers are easily lined with insulation and then clad in any number of materials to give the same effect as the interior of your own home. As with most modern homes the floor of a container is covered in plywood which is easily covered in vinyl, carpet, laminate or even stone flooring. Electrical system can then be added to include lighting, heaters, air conditioning, water heaters and plug sockets. Plumbing too is made easy with an exterior connection. Inside power showers, wcs, water heaters, sinks, taps and baths can be installed. The modular nature of a shipping container means multiple units can be stacked together or side by side creating larger spaces. Staircases can be manufactured leading from one container to another either on the outside of the containers or as an integral part of the interior just as with a conventional home. Many governments use container accommodation for disasters and emergency housing. When finished with the containers can be closed up and taken to the next site ready for use. More recently architects have been capitalising on the green credentials associated with recycled shipping containers as a selling point for modern office blocks, houses and even hotels.
