An architect based in Dallas, Texas has designed and constructed a 3,700 square foot home made of shipping containers.
With three bedrooms and three “and a half” bathrooms, the building is large enough to house a family of three.
The house is also sustainable due to a concrete beam that has been set up to ensure that the structure doesn’t fall over.

As reported previously by PTI, a Japanese architectural company had used shipping containers to construct a two-storey office building, taking two-and-a-half months to complete and costing around US$127,000 to build.
London has also caught on to the initiative constructing ‘Containerville’, where shipping containers have been used to construct offices as a means of affordable housing for young creatives living in the city.
London is also home to ‘BoxPark’, a congregation of shops installed in shipping containers located in East London’s trendy Shoreditch area.
