    Luxury shipping container homes

    Another big trend is luxury shipping container homes. You don’t have to keep things simple, and you can build a more luxurious shipping container home or office space. Many tiny homes are being spruced up with amazing interior decor that is luxurious and rich. These container homes have the look and feel of a proper house inside, although, on the outside, they may very well still have the appearance of a container. Although, customizing the outside of a container is also, of course, possible.

    Depending on the interior decor style you want to opt for, you can make a special shipping container home that suits you. For example, if you want a holiday home or cabin in the woods, you can easily create such a home from a shipping container.

    Inside shipping container homes

    Shipping containers have a standard look and feel, making interior design and general modification easy. That’s because the rectangular shape of a shipping container means easy-to-place flooring and the space inside makes it easy to add modular elements.

    Nowadays, you can add windows, staircases, heating/electrical/plumbing systems, and even additional design features such as lofts or sky roofs inside shipping container homes. All of this is reliant on the size and basic dimensions of the container at hand. Read more about this in our blog post: What are the dimensions of a shipping container?

    Depending on your budget, you can design the interior of your container exactly as you please. But you’ll need to do your research to see what is possible according to your desires and budget combined.

    How can I modify a shipping container according to my needs?

    Once you’ve purchased a basic container through Eveon, the next step would be to find a modification company for shipping container homes.

For example, a modification company specializing in floors for containers can help you choose the best flooring solutions according to your budget. And what about plumbing and electrical work? You’d need a modification company that specializes in shipping containers to support you in this.

    Other kinds of repurposed shipping containers

    Nowadays, all kinds of containers are being repurposed in different ways, not only as shipping container homes. In fact, shipping containers are being given a new lease on life as hotels even. Moreover, some containers are being reused as greenhouses, indoor gardens, laboratories, swimming pools, bars, or takeaway restaurants (or other types of businesses requiring a small, movable space).

    In developing countries, containers are also used for schools, low-cost housing, offices, or even for pop-up medical purposes, i.e., as a doctor’s office or a vaccination clinic. Basically, the sky’s the limit when it comes to the uses of a repurposed shipping container.

    Why repurposed shipping containers?

    The list is innumerable if we consider the many benefits of repurposed containers. Some key benefits include:

    • Durability: Shipping containers are exceptionally durable as they’ve been traveling by sea and must be windproof and watertight. Moreover, you might want to know how long shipping container homes last. The answer depends, of course, on their purpose and how often they are maintained, but shipping container homes can last for decades and hence are particularly durable.
    • Useful shape: Shipping containers have a good and easy-to-move shape, so they can easily be transported on trucks on land. This is great if you need a space that can be physically moved according to your needs. Containers are also stackable, so creating a multistory home or office space is easy.
    • Security: Another crucial aspect of containers is that they are very secure. Heavy-duty doors are made of robust steel, can easily be locked, and are pretty difficult to break into.

    Lastly, it’s important to mention that not all states in the United States allow you to live in shipping container homes. You can read more about the pros and cons of shipping container homes in general and also details about which states allow shipping container homes.
