A House Made from Shipping Containers

With the age of environmental consciousness upon us, some people are looking at ways to reuse things like shipping containers to create a prefab house. Here’s a perfect example of a nice two story house being built from used shipping containers. The containers have been cut to include large windows and doors. This makes for a very modern design that appeals to many.

Shipping containers are becoming more popular as prefab housing options since they’re incredibly durable (made from steel), very inexpensive, and easy to maneuver. You’ll see in this video that they’re using a medium sized forklift to raise all of the containers into place, even the ones on the second story.
