The idea to build the budget house of the containers appeared not so long ago, but has already gained recognition among many architects and designers. In every large port, you can find a lot of old containers. After serving term guarantee, they are remain on the shore. With solid frame and metal casing, these containers are very durable and they can be purchased for relatively little money. All that is needed is to move the container to the site, cut openings for doors and windows, sheathe the walls and connect the light and sewers and water - the house is ready.
Designer Benjamin Garcia Saxe built a small house made of two 40-foot sea containers a 20-minute drive from San Jose, Costa Rica. New home owners, a young couple - Gabriela Calvo and Marco Peralta, very dream of his own country house, but did not have a big budget for construction. Then they had the idea to use for building a old sea container. To realize his dream, they invited Benjamin Garcia. He built them a home for only $ 40,000. What came of it judge for yourself.
