15 Beautiful Homes Made from Shipping Containers

Shipping containers used to be simply containers that shipped large items mostly. Though they were used for shipping all sorts of items that was their specialty and main purpose. Now, people, designers, and home builders use these containers to build homes of all sizes. Who would have thought a couple decades ago that some of the most beautiful homes that exist would be made from these industrial items? Home builders are becoming more creative and innovative when it comes to building homes that are fabulous, yet affordable. Home buyers are looking for more green, eco-conscious, and luxurious homes that will not break the bank, but instead are affordable and highly personalized. Besides the tiny house which many are made from shipping containers as well, a home made with shipping container can also be mini mansions. You can create as much space as you need by building with these materials.

The shipping container house started off as rough metal homes utilizing one or two containers, now builders are linking many containers together in many different directions and angles to personalize the homes for their buyers. DIYers are also taking advantage of this trend by building their own homes. All they need is a space where they can build and legally reside in order to make this dream come true. There is no limit to the creative and beautiful homes that can be built this way.

In a way, building with shipping containers is a bit more creative than the average tiny house, because you can place your shipping containers so that they can connect in any shape you desire. Just use your imagination and you can come up with a look and style of of some of the most luxurious homes out there, also made from these containers. We hope to inspire you to use your imagination if you have been thinking of living in a home built from salvaged containers.
