Recently more and more natural disasters affect our living. Is there any feeling worse than feeling of insecure at your own home? Is there a way to turn your “home sweet home” into a safer living space? We say: there is nothing impossible in this world.


Once earthquake is mentioned, a clear image of devastated landscape emerges in our minds. If you live in one of those geologically active parts of the world, container housing can be your perfect solution. Container housing getting popular not only due to its modern design and eco-friendly features, but also because people follow their desire to live safe and happily. Container houses are resistant to earthquakes and typhoons damages, therefore its price can’t compare with the cost of your lives.


Shipping containers are originally designed to withstand severe weather conditions of the ocean travel. Clemson University (USA) researchers say that “due to shipping container “unibody” construction, they are very secure at seismic zones”, that’s why more and more people start using them not only as emergency shelters, but turn them into  a constant living place. Container`s steel structure is not as easy to get cracked or fractured, as a concrete structure. By building a shipping container house you add to the solving of global recycling problem both with providing those in needs with a suitable housing. Researchers from Clemson University went further than just housing needs, they propose to place steel drums on the roofs of container home in order to do gardening. In case the ground is not usable after storm, citizens can easily grow crops on their own roof!


Container disaster-proof home is very easy to build. Some of them already have complete facilities, so you can directly move in, the only thing you`ll need to do is to lay the foundation of the container box. The outer design is all up to your imagination!
