The principle behind the sea containers house planning is simple: a house is made from one or more sea containers. The further development, however, requires some creativity. How do you get a sea container, what about permits and the laying of pipes? How do you ensure that the house is well insulated, that there is running water and light can burn? In addition, the question is how the container house can be built as sustainably as possible.
Containers are extremely strong and easy to transport. In addition, containers can be stacked well, with which you can realize multiple floors. It could just be that the housing container will become a competitor for the traditional construction methods, because containers are also resistant to all kinds of weather conditions. Finally, containers are also sustainable, because they are easy to recycle.
