Container Homes

Is this the new housing trend?

Shipping containers serve a pretty useful function, helping to transport goods safely across the world. However, when they come to the end of their time at sea, there are numerous ways a shipping container can be given a brand-new lease of life and continue being useful for years to come. From office space, to clinics, to a sustainable living space!
