6 Basic Features of a Container

7 The materials Most containers are now made of Corten Steel.

9 WHY Containers? The strongest self-standing structure in the world.
Form of recycling - every shipping line and leasing company can only use these containers for ten years before recertification or resale. Very quick build time as structure already exists. Container buildings can fit on small properties, unusable by traditional construction. Lower building costs % cheaper than traditional construction. Approx $100/sq.ft.

10 Modifying Containers In Amsterdam and the UK, shipping containers have been popular for student housing and apartments since 2005. At about the same time in the US, people like Adam Kalkin, Peter De Maria, and the Lo-Tek company in New York began using the shipping container in contemporary homes. In mid 2006, David Cross of SG Block was featured by Bob Vila and on many news programs because his company built the first conventional looking container home for a government project in St. Petersburg, Florida.
