Average home prices have risen to about $300,000 these past few years. While the location of the homes may have a significant impact on the price of the home, the house itself costs a lot of money, a lot more than what most people can afford. This is why many people are choosing alternative ways to live.
Modern urban ingenuity allowed us to create and make use of living spaces that would have been considered absurd at any other point in time. The deteriorating economy, rising levels of pollution and rapid increase in population forced people to consider more eco-friendlier ways.
The newest solution for living spaces? Shipping containers. People are building actual homes from these containers. It’s called cargo container architecture. It’s super cheap, compact and eco-friendly.
