Container Home in Bangalore

Shipping containers have always intrigued us with their strength and versatility. Taking a step further in using shipping containers in our daily lives, how about living in one with the family?


Container Homes are a new approach towards modular, eco-friendly and cost effective housing. Useful spaces are created by arranging and joining containers in various positions. Arranging containers is similar to arranging lego bricks, except that the bricks are atleast 20ft long, 8ft wide and 8ft high.


 It is hard to believe as how containers like above can be converted into a container home like below.


Container homes are a popular concept in Western countries, but in India, it has never been done before. In our case, we have used 2 old shipping containers to create a house equipped with a Living room, Bedroom, Kitchen, Bathroom and Balcony.
The entire complex consists of four containers, two making up the container home and other two being used as office space and bachelor pad.
In our previous Endeavour, we created a comfortable and cozy living unit for a single person using a single container.


The two containers act as two modular units of the house. One container is converted into a bedroom cum bathroom.


And the other container serves as the kitchen area and dining area.


Windows and Doors have been cut on the container sides to provide easy access. The container are placed in an L-shape, with other L becoming a 12ft by 12ft living room. The house boasts of a very unique wall made out of glass beer bottles, with a bullock cart wheel at its center.(as can be seen below)


The doors of the containers have been opened out to get extra 4ft of floor space as can be seen in the above photograph. More on the Container Home in later posts….

The possibilities with containers are endless, they open a completely new way of creating strong and cost-effective structures for regular use. Shipping containers are ideal building blocks for making comfortable and eco-friendly houses. Container Homes are not only economical to make but take considerably less time to build when compared to traditional houses.

Welcome to the world of Container Homes.

I live in Madagascar ( East Africa),and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now and really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as I have been going through a problem as seriously as my son found a terrible accident last two weeks, and the doctors states that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again and I could not pay the bills, then your surgery went to the bank to borrow and reject me saying that I have no credit card, from there i run to my father and he was not able to help, then when I was browsing through yahoo answers and i came across a loan lender Mr, Benjamin Breil Lee, offering loans at affordable interest rate I had no choice but to give it an attempt and surprisingly it was all like a dream, I got a loan of $ 110,000.00 to paid for my son surgery then get myself a comfortable business to help me going as well. I  thank God today is good and you can walk and is working and the burden is longer so much on me more and we can feed well and my family is happy today and i said to myself that I will mourn aloud in the world of the wonders of God to me through this God fearing lender  Mr Benjamin Breil Lee and I would advise anyone in genuine and serious need of loan to contact this God-fearing man on  ...... through .. and I want you all to pray for this man for me or Chat with him on whatsapp  +1-989-394-3740 as well.
