Shipping containers are no longer reserved for transporting goods. Made primarily from repurposed materials, shipping container hotels offer an alternative way of living while traveling, ranging from rustic or upscale vibes.
According to Cleveland Containers, using this method of construction is 40-60 percent faster than traditional building methods, which reduces costs, labor and on-site waste. So, not only are these shipping container hotels less labor-intensive to construct, it’s also eco-friendly.
Take a look at these shipping container hotels:
Although it looks industrial from the outside, the interior of the Xiang Xiang Pray House in China was designed with traditional Chinese features. It’s constructed from 35 metal containers.
