I thought that the only use of shipping containers was the transport of goods by sea and train, but I couldn’t be more wrong.
There are a number of spectacular houses made from shipping containers all around the world, with incredibly detailed interiors and huge glass windows that make these cozy spaces amazingly bright.
Are you still thinking that you wouldn’t live in a shipping container? I guess you will change your mind before the end of the article.
