Building a House from Shipping Containers
Green building is becoming increasingly popular and important whether you are talking about residences or businesses. It is not surprising that companies such as Starbucks have taken great initiative by building an earth-friendly store out of shipping containers! Old shipping containers are difficult to dispose of, but they are easily repurposed. Creating a house from shipping containers does not seem like a far stretch, and neither does making apartment complexes!
You can see the great pictures of the Starbucks location here. Getting creative with shipping containers is good for publicity, and it is good for the environment. Wonder if other companies will follow their lead.
Even if a shipping container store front is not right for your business, would you consider making your house from shipping containers? These people look like they have a magic touch for turning the mundane and hardened look of a shipping container into a beautiful home!
Still not impressed? Check out this incredible housing complex built in Amsterdam. This is taking green building to a whole new level!
