What if you could spend a fraction of what it would cost to buy or build your own house and instead build a unique home that’s completely off the grid? It can be done, and there are plenty of people who’ve already taken the plunge.
Shipping containers exist in a massive surplus and someone like you or I can grab one for around $2,000. From there, you can get your creative juices flowing and build an awesome home, getaway spot, or cottage-like structure on your existing property, provided you have the space. If you’re able to put this baby on wheels, you won’t even need a permit to have it around.
Innovative ideas like these are becoming more popular as people seek alternative ways to live modern lifestyles. There is even a site called Zigloo which has released multiple plans and ideas for making structures out of shipping containers and more. You can check them out here.
Other Off-Grid Ideas
Other off-grid ideas and projects that are becoming popular are things like tiny homes and earthships. Both are gaining a lot of traction lately and can be built using very modern designs, so it doesn’t feel like you are heading back to the stone ages. You can check out more about Earthships here and Tiny Homes here.
Below are some awesome pictures of various completed shipping container projects.
