We must reuse and recycle whenever possible to save the planet. You can recycle construction materials as well as structures and materials used in their creation. Although shipping containers are used primarily to ship commodities to North America from overseas, many others have been proven useful.
They can also be used to construct sheds, homes and cottages. These containers can be used in commercial construction for offices or coffee shops.
They are even used by some construction companies to move through large-scale projects. Depending on where they are located, shipping containers cost around $3,500. Back Country Containers can help you build a container home.
Back Country Containers began with a 20-foot shipping container. Back Country Containers founder Jon Meier recognized the value of shipping containers as a source of inspiration and resources for his home. Meier has enjoyed solving problems and taking on new challenges. Jon Meier was an aeronautical engineering engineer. He loved tiny houses when he lived in one.
Back Country Containers is the product of his passion and expertise. After completing his task, he was able to begin building the first container house. Kristen, Kristen’s spouse is a skilled decorator. They work together to make stunning homes.
Their first container house was built from a 20-foot blue shipping container. The container made them well-known and led them to a new destination. To build their perfect container home, they formed a company. Their goal was to make larger houses. This can be done by using shipping containers. Imagine playing with lego or blocks.
Each container can be customized to the client’s specifications. You can mix 40-foot- and 20-foot containers to achieve this. They are located in Texas but can also travel. Each home will be built on either a concrete block or concrete pier foundation.
A concrete foundation pier is recommended. Closed cell foam spray insulation is used in all residences. You can be sure that the temperature of your home will remain constant, no matter what weather. After the plumbing is installed, it’s connected to the city water pipes. A grey water system or off-grid option is also available.
The city can be connected to electric, or you could use the solar and generator power off-grid. The tiny container-constructed house looks amazing with a rooftop patio and small deck at the front. The house has a large living room with a fireplace that can be used as a second fire place. It is modern and cozy.
This is especially striking when combined with full-sized stainless steel appliances and a fully equipped kitchen. The barn door can be used as a way to seperate bedrooms and bathrooms. However, there are plenty of places that offer privacy. One of the main attractions is the rooftop patio, which has a small garden.
