When I was visiting Hannover in 2012 I learned that people actually build houses out of containers! This can be cheaper than regular constructions… can be built faster and is also environmentally responsible.
After I get back, me and my best man Rafael put some time to build our first 3D Container House Project using Google SketchUp.
In this project we used four 40′ shipping containers (12.5×2.4×2.9 meters). This containers can be bought on the internet and in Brazil they cost approximately US$2,000.00 (R$4.100,00 in local currency)
We will some day build our container house!
