Homes made from shipping containers

​Shipping containers can be used in a variety of ways – beyond their original purpose. Interestingly, they are being converted into a popular structural element for architects and green designers. The containers offer a modern, low-cost and sustainable building approach – and can be upcycled into anything from cafés to homes.
