In today's world of design and architecture, it's almost impossible to keep up with the current trends and fashion, since it is renewed very quickly. There are a few things that don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, though, like container homes. These economic, eco-friendly and stylish options in architecture have caught the attention and imagination of professionals and lay men alike, right across the world. We here at homify believe that this reverence is well-founded and entirely justified. The benefits to a container home are undeniably numerous and sound.

So take a few minutes to enjoy these amazing home that you can recreate on the cheap!
