More and more people in Tampa are making the move and downsizing to shipping containers. Although the idea of green building is drawing people to this living alternative, many people feel as if they will be sacrificing on originality and space therefore tossing the idea aside. The idea of loss however, is a myth. Those who chose to go through this transformation have just as much design freedom as any homeowner, from construction all the way through decorating, while doing their part to conserve the environment around them.
This is an alternative that can be transformed into a space for almost any need you can think of. Many shipping containers are used for new age homes but can also be the perfect office space or an additional space to any home. They also allow you to add on any feature you would add onto a traditional home: air conditioning, heating, electricity, décor, and fully functioning appliances, etc.
Making the down size may mean less space but it also come wide an array of benefits that are hard for any homeowner to pass up. Not only are these structures durable and will withstand any weather that blows through Tampa, they are also resourceful. These 20’ by 8’ spaces are both environmentally and economically friendly:
