Innovative 1 bedroom apartment for rent sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? And yet there ARE some new innovations on the market now regarding construction, and they fit perfectly with the new movement towards “downsizing.”
The latest shift in construction is in the shipping container movement, and it isn’t just in apartment buildings; it can be found in office buildings, warehouse, artist studios, repair shops, and generally in any type of business you can imagine. Is a cheap office for you?
That’s right, we said shipping containers! The shipping container revolution upon us, and Box Office Warehouse Suites is at the forefront of that revolution.
But more about that later! Let’s get back to the lack of innovation in most construction, and how that lack of innovation costs you in the long run.
How is a building usually constructed? You start with the foundation, then frame the building, put a roof on, add wiring, insulation, and plumbing, add walls, ceilings, and floor, and then do the finish work. For a 2,000 square foot home, that means about 16,000 board feet of lumber is used in the framing, and another 20,000 square feet of wood products are used to finish it. All of that lumber/wood is expensive, by the way, and all of it is another paper cut for our environment….each home…multiplied by the number of homes built each year….lots of trees!
So the construction is finished and what are you left with? In most cases you are left with a home/building that looks remarkably like about a million other homes or buildings.
Are we right or are we right?
Now let’s talk about shipping container construction. There are currently about seven million unused shipping containers in the world. They are already constructed. It takes very little in the way of lumber products to refurbish them.Shipping container office plans offer flexibility.
The Earth is happy!
Each container is an empty slate. It can be created according to the whims and needs of the customer. It is unique, it is flexible, and it is inexpensive.
Everyone is happy!
