When considering the prospect of using shipping containers as a building resource, some curl up their nose and ask, “Are they strong enough?”, or “Can they sustain a structural load?” Granted, not too much is known regarding the structural integrity of a common shipping container. Consider that in transport, shipping containers stack several high while fully loaded, enduring constant wave motion and shifting of contents.
Permit me to share with you an interesting You Tube video that details how shipping containers are made. I am confident it will help convince you that shipping containers are more than adequate to function in the construction industry.
