The popularity of container homes fetched the attention of the governments of various countries who were looking for a cheap yet sustainable solution for the homeless population. Since these are stackable, housing units with multiple storeys are easy to construct with them. Presently, there are many container cities in the world where residential complexes, made entirely from repurposed shipping containers, house a large number of populations. In addition to houses, containers are also being used for the conversion into beautiful offices, garages, and garden sheds.
Since shipping containers come in different sizes, one can decide how big or small his home needs to be. While a 20’ conex box is perfect for a bachelor’s pad, one would need two 40’ high cube boxes to comfortably accommodate a family of five.
