The idea of living in an old shipping container is fascinating, especially if it looks like one of these structures from IC Green, Inc. The company reuses trashed shipping containers and converts them into a wide range of structures, from 320 square foot studios to 2400 square foot homes.
The Architect’s team design other modular layouts upon request as well as multi story units. Financing will be available upon request.
Apart from the shipping container bones, the dwellings are well insulated with radiant floor system, which minimize the energy required by the home. If you need much better systems, the company will also install green roofs, solar and geothermal energy systems for an additional charge.
The structural rigidity in the metal frame and corrugation of the shipping container equal more than standard timber and steel construction. This factor leads to ease in stacking and joining in many possible configurations. The optimized frame construction allows for more square footage within the same footprint as a standard timber construction, making it particularly successful for any small and large scale housing project. Construction time from start to finish is significantly reduced through prefabrication of about 80% of the structure. Once a plan has been selected, the factory prepares the unit by cutting for windows, doors or removing sides. Windows, flooring, and other finish materials are applied easily through use of standard dimensions and pre-assembled framing
