There are an estimated 17 million shipping containers in the world, with 5-6 million of them currently on vessels, trucks and trains.
Shipping containers help deliver products we consume every single day, but for a growing number of modern homesteaders and off-gridders, they also form the structure for their homes.
On this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio, we discuss everything you’ve ever wanted to know about shipping container homes. Our guest is Adam Hellicar, the owner of Honeybox, Inc., a Canadian-based company that buys shipping containers and then constructs houses of all sizes. He even built one on a mountaintop!
Adam tells us:
- Why the benefits of shipping container homes outweigh the drawbacks.
- How shipping container homes can be insulated so homeowners stay comfortable during scorching-hot heat and frigid-cold weather.
- Why such homes are an ideal solution for people who live off the grid.
We learned a lot about shipping container homes from Adam, and we know you will, too!
