Shipping Container Home Design

Shipping Container Buildings November 28, 2016

Shipping containers

Are you tired of traditional homes? Are you looking for something more unique? Perhaps, a building that offers more than just a roof over your head. Here is a company that exceeds these demands. They use innovative technology to create modular custom commercial and residential spaces. Their name is Bachbox and they are located in New Zealand.

What is a modular space? For Bachbox, it is a shipping container that can be placed top to bottom or side to side with another. This means that Bachbox customers have freedom in any design that fits there budget. They can be very small homes or very large homes. They are low maintenance builds which is good news for any home buyer. They are also transportable, so moving doesn’t need to involve looking for a new home! Maybe this will not be your full time residence, or maybe you live in an area threatened with bad weather. Bachbox has anticipated these situations, and is ready to accommodate them.

These builds are earthquake and cyclone resistant. The innovative technology and design used makes these homes airtight. A Bachbox home has steel flaps. When the home is open and there are no storms, the flaps lay down on the ground and create a patio area. In case of bad weather, or if you are leaving the home vacant for the season, you can close the flaps to cover the windows and lock up the home so it is secure! Don’t worry you do not need to manually close the steel flaps. It is all done with a remote control. Remember, low maintenance!

This company is determined to keep their product at its very best. So much so, that they have taken a temporary production break for research and development effective January, 2017. They plan to return with more innovative designs and even better quality products. Their design team will continue working during productions research break. This is good news because Bachbox has a design team with special expertise in difficult site builds. While we look forward to seeing what the new year might bring us with Bachbox, it is certainly easy to appreciate all the great work the company has done thus far!
