Young people who cannot afford to buy a house are now living in shipping containers as an alternative. Many charities are also renovating old containers for the homeless in Brighton, London and Cardiff. Wenckehof student village in Amsterdam is also made up entirely of old containers.
About 40% of young adults cannot afford to buy one of the cheapest homes in their area in the UK, with the average deposit now standing at about £26,000.
The situation has compelled some to come up with creative solutions.
This includes Clare and Aubrey Fry, from Powys, who have converted a shipping container into their very own home.
