Well Travelled (Eco) Homes

Each year, millions of shipping containers are left to sit in shipping and storage yards all over the world.

In another clever and unusual story of re-use, people looking to build a home and make an environmental difference have been converting some of these empty shipping containers into houses!

You can leave them in their ‘natural’ state or repaint them, stack them, even cut doors and windows out of the sides or ends. In both London and New Zealand resourceful entrepeneurs have even created holiday homes and hotels from them.
