Container house for living and recreation
The term container house is primarily used for modular constructions. In recent years this phrase has become very popular as a sign of the low-cost construction of small houses and especially weekend houses in the countryside. It is therefore primarily a sign for private buildings intended for housing and recreation, although somewhat paradoxically its name expresses its technical solution. As far as technical design and visual appearance are concerned, the same applies to a container house as for a modular house.
We can see projects that you would never guess were modular. However, there are also residential units for a weekend in the countryside, where the technical solution is obvious, but its origins as a container can be masked by cladding.
The advantage of these weekend cabins is that they do not have to be securely connected to the ground and can thus be placed without a building permit on land that is not intended for the construction of a house.
The ecological aspect
The ecological aspect of the container house is also frequently mentioned, especially in the case of a house built from used shipping containers. This option is certainly interesting, but in our regions, such a house requires considerable additional insulation and the price advantage of such a solution is negligible. In general, however, the possibility of using known sheet metal containers as a building shell is interesting.
In general, container houses are becoming increasingly popular around the world, especially because they offer modern and stylish living and, thanks to lower construction costs, are affordable for more people. The popularisation of this solution is largely due to young architects, who often focus on this trend and often create completely novel and trendy solutions. The advantage of further possible expansion of the house according to the changing needs of the family is also significant.
