Are cargo shipping containers made from recycled material?



  1. 0 Votes

    Cargo shipping containers used to be made from aluminum and steel, although they are now mainly being made from Corten steel.  Corten steel is a weathering steel that does not corrode as easily as other alloys, making it a durable material for shipping containers.  Generally, shipping containers are not made from recycled materials but many green builders have reused shipping containers for building material, and sometimes use the actual containers to convert into living spaces.

    Yes you can definately convert shipping containers into livable spaces. In terms of resource use and costs, it is one of the most efficient ways of building a home.
