Shipping Containers are of course a popular building material in this day and age, where people are more green and planning on being more sustainable for the earth. While a majority of what we see as far as homes are concerned are all over the world– New York is a relatively surprising location for such a structure.
The first shipping container home in New York is now occupied by its owners after a myriad of issues and construction restrictions– 5 years after purchasing the plot. The home is equipped with radiant heated flooring, and Super Therm insulation for the colder weather months.
Though there has been much criticism to the overall architecture, interior design and ultimate outcome of the space, the owners have overcome a great feat in dealing with their building restrictions and other issues along the way. There’s always room for improvement, and this home will surely pave the way for other NY based shipping container homes.
