We see shipping containers arrive aboard overloaded freighters in harbors, rolling down the railways across the country, and zipping down the highway pulled by trucks. Those industrial strength shipping containers are now being reused to create emergency homes or even incredible living spaces you would love to call home. Following are 22 of our favorite spaces created from those large metal boxes.
Why would anyone choose to use shipping containers? Those massive boxes can be purchased for dramatically less cost per square foot than traditional construction, plus they are incredibly strong. As you can now see, they can be turned into beautiful spaces that make you completely forget their industrial shipping heritage.
