While the shortage of containers for cargo transportation is in an acute phase all over the world, resourceful entrepreneurs give a second life to old containers that have gone out of circulation.
Of course, each of us has seen construction change houses made on the basis of 20- and 40-foot containers, but human imagination is limitless. Let's look at the most interesting solutions.
This design has a number of advantages, the main of which is its cost. The container has a sufficiently high strength, mobility, speed of collection of multi-module structures and tightness. However, it should be taken into account here that the peculiarities of thermal conductivity will not allow you to simply unload the container on the ground and live in it even in the warmest regions of our country. It is necessary to lay a high-quality "cushion" from the foundation to isolate the floor of the future house from the temperature effects of the earth. At the same time, in hot climatic zones, the container heats up quite quickly, which can cause discomfort when inside. It is necessary to consider the issue of ventilation and thermal insulation. There will be no problems with communications - it is enough to isolate the water supply to the residential part of the container with high quality.
An excellent solution for the service sector, such as tire fitting, minor repair services, express testing for viruses (which is relevant), mini-production (protective masks that have become commonplace are made on small machines), even as a parking place with a storage area instead of obsolete "seashells". The mobility of containers allows you to quickly move the point of sale depending on the needs, similarly to food trucks, but at an incomparably lower cost in production.
