The Music Box, Australia
Shipping container homes have become a lasting trend for the ecologically minded that want to leave as small an environmental footprint as possible.
And while some people might want to get shipping container home floor plans to build their own house or a cabin up in the woods, some people have container house plans for more practical, business-related buildings or additions.
For instance, those that work in the music industry may want a special addition to house a recording studio that is simple to put together and ready to go in a short time. That addition is the Music Box.
In short the Music Box is the business end of the shipping container modular home phenonmenon. Because the dimensions of a shipping container are just right to hold all of the equipment and recording apparati for making music, and it can be easily insulated to eliminate any sort of echo that might result, it’s the perfect solution for where to find space to record tunes.
Literally a music box, these shipping containers can be modified in a very short term (weeks or months depending on the specifications), and everything you need to record can be nailed down and held in place for easy movement if the Music Box has to be taken on the road for one reason or another.
The creation and popularity of the Music Box shows that it isn’t just homeowners getting in on the green movement now.
More and more often businesses are investing in products made from recycled and repurposed materials such as the Music Box, and other modular containers for short term, on site housing.
Cheaper than trailers, and able to be used over and over again, cargo container structures offer a major return on investment over the long term and a savings in cash up front over many other options.
And in order to really make zero waste a part of culture and a way of life it’s going to take that sort of corporate involvement to make a trend stick over the long term.
