Try before you buy?


Yesterday I sent an email about Warren's container home
plans and designs.

Did you see them?

=> These are the designs I was talking about.

You might be wondering, "Why on Earth use an old shipping container to build a home?"


Afford-ability: Building a container home is extremely cost effective.

Design: You can easily mod-ify shipping container to create a modern sleek look.

Strength: Shipping containers are built extremely strong with few weak points making them a great starting point.

Time: Because the majority of the home is already built you can have a complete home built in rec-ord time.

Unique: Even though container homes are on the rise they are still unique and will stand out from every other home.

Green: Recycling an old shipping container and using it to build with is a great green idea.

=> Special offer for Today:

Containers make the perfect home for a fraction of the cost of a regular home.



umans have used containers for at least 100,000 years, and possibly for millions of years. The first containers were probably invented for storing food, allowing early humans to preserve more of their food for a longer time, to carry it more easily, and also to protect it from other animals. The development of food storage containers was \"of immense importance to the evolving human populations\", and \"was a totally innovative behavior\" not seen in other primates. The earliest containers were probably objects found in nature such as hollow gourds, of which primitive examples have been found in cultures such as those of the Tharu people, and native Hawaiian people. These were followed by woven baskets, carved wood, and pottery.\r\n\r\nContainers thereafter continued to develop along with related advances in human technology, and with the development of new materials and new means of manufacture. Early glass bottles were produced by the Phoenicians; specimens of Phoenician translucent and transparent glass bottles have been found in Cyprus and Rhodes generally varying in length from three to six inches. These Phoenician examples from the first millennium BC were thought to have been used to contain perfume. The Romans learned glass-making from the Phoenicians and produced many extant examples of fine glass bottles, mostly relatively small. By the beginning of the eighteenth century, sizes for retail containers such as glass bottles had become standardized for their markets.\r\n\r\nIn 1810, Frenchman Philippe de Girard came to London and used British merchant Peter Durand as an agent to patent his own idea for a process for making tin cans. The canning concept was based on experimental food preservation work in glass containers the year before by the French inventor Nicholas Appert. Durand did not pursue food canning, but, in 1812, sold his patent to two Englishmen, Bryan Donkin and John Hall, who refined the process
