Keeping your commitment to leading an eco-friendly lifestyle in an eco-friendly container home, you can look to add low E-windows and properly recycled HW doors. You can even DIY or hire a contractor to insulate the flat roof using natural wood and look to avoid any VOC finishes to the construction.
For boosting its aesthetics, you can paint the container walls with glossy white paint and keep a few accent walls painted with blonde wood. You can even create design
uniformity by painting the ceiling and floor with the same shade to give it a modernistic touch. Moreover, you can add a wooden deck that opens up your container living space and aptly blends the interior with the exterior space.
Besides these, container homes are itself eco-friendly as they reduce waste, CO2 footprints and don’t contribute to harming the earth either. It doesn’t take a whole lot of space, and its structural walls make it way tougher than a brick and mortar home.
