We’ve all seen container houses on various TV shows and if you’re anything like me probably thought “what a perfect solution, cheap and quick to build!”

Are Container Houses a Viable Option?

So what are they really like and what are the potential problems with container homes? Without wanting to state the obvious, container houses are typically made up from one or more shipping containers joined together and typically (but not always) disguised to look like a normal home. The containers are made from corrugated steel boxes that have very strong vertical box section at the corners and around the edges. The reason they’re built like this is so that they can be stacked on the boats up to 7 or 8 containers high, without deforming. They do this by transferring the weight through the strong vertical box sections in their corners and therein lies their beauty and the inherent difficulties when trying to convert them into a home.

Micro Houses. Model D House, Pitmachie - ModelDhomes. The ‘Model D’ house is a prototype for an affordable low-energy house constructed from locally available materials, which would be both cheaper and more appropriate than the standardised, kit-built homes that proliferate in the rural environment of Scotland.

Model D House, Pitmachie - ModelDhomes

It was commissioned by Sylvan Stuart Ltd, an Aberdeenshire company that specialises in the construction of timber houses, lodges and cabins through the UK. The building was completed in February 2011, and received the RIAS/RIBA and Saltire Housing Design Awards in 2012. It demonstrates the innovative and creative use of home-grown timber, costing less than £950 per square metre to build. The Model-D House offers a viable and affordable housing option for rural communities where fuel poverty is a major concern with the rising costs of energy. The design seeks to stimulate revisions in our current thinking about the affordable rural house design.

Midges and mosquitos can turn a lovely evening socialising in the garden or a BBQ into an irritating nightmare.

How To Use Garden Plants To Deter Midges And Mosquitos

The little blighters get up your nose; both literally and metaphorically, into your food and seem to delight in taking swimming lessons in your drink. You can slather yourself in insect repellent, but not everyone is keen on covering themselves in chemicals. You can burn the natural citronella candles or a pyrethrum based repellent coil. One way to cut down on these pests is to make sure you don’t have stagnant standing water in the garden; make sure the bird bath is kept clear of algae and the water changed every couple of days and make sure the pond has a pump to keep the water moving.

Shipping Container Homes - Design for Me

Shipping container homes are becoming the new eco-friendly alternative when it comes to building or renovating a home in the UK. Why not use one for your next extension? Why Use Shipping Containers? Some countries are not trading goods with other countries as much as they used to, the UK being a prime example of this. As a result, empty and unused shipping containers are taking up space on shipping docks because it is too expensive to send them back to their countries of origin. Recycling these shipping containers by turning them into sustainable homes, offices, stores, apartments or schools is a great way to reuse existing materials and reduce our environmental footprint on the world.

Plan Planning is the most important step when it comes to building your own shipping container home or extension. Avoid Mistakes. KOKA KARKASA MĀJAS – Koka Karkasa Mājas.

For many people it is just space, where it is warm and dry. Somewhere to place your belongings, in a space functional for your lifestyle. Many people, however, also look out for good design, a particular modern feeling, or special qualities in materials and space. Generally, though, the majority of people don't have a proper notion of these things.

They appreciate what is there if it feels right, but are not interested in what lies behind the white wall, what makes the light come in an attractive and functional way, of why the room feels warm and airy at the same time. Living space should also contain these qualities when there is nothing in it: a mattress on the floor , one chair and a table should be all you need to feel at home. If you are bulding a house, the site is important, as is the local climate, the people and their culture. 96 % of all housing in Norway is built in wood.
