Shipping Container houses – Amazing by Design!!!

May 13, 2014

These rusty shipping containers look abandoned, but look inside and… WOW, I just can’t believe it!

I thought that the only use of shipping containers was the transport of goods by sea and train, but I couldn’t be more wrong.
There are a number of spectacular houses made from shipping containers all around the world, with incredibly detailed interiors and huge glass windows that make these cozy spaces amazingly bright.

Are you still thinking that you wouldn’t live in a shipping container? I guess you will change your mind before the end of the article.
