A different kind of roof over your head – shipping container chic!
It might sound odd, but something new to take home design by storm is the shipping container!
Into one of these!
Shipping containers are actually a really smart and sustainable way of creating a flat roofed home, as they are basically cheap, reliable Lego blocks! Shipping container architecture (or sometimes called cargotecture!)
Designed to carry heavy loads and to stack uniformly, they are really well adapted to building dwellings, and they do well in all manner of environments. They are also eco-friendly, available worldwide, and are a very low cost building tool. We can’t believe how stunning some of these homes end up looking! It certainly makes you rethink how a flat roofed building can be constructed! Though we aren’t sure we’ll be seeing too many of these projects in our Burnley Roofing jobs!
One of the cleverest uses we’ve seen of shipping containers, is in Christchurch, New Zealand following the earthquake they suffered in 2011. The Cashell mall reopened in 2015 made solely of shipping containers – and it looks amazing.
