    Why not? Isn't that the newest thing? Or is that only for preppers?

    I voted before I watched the video. Not my first choice, but it's not too bad.

    I prefer what I have now, an RV i can live in and drive away.
    But shipping containers are earthquake proof, they might fall down, but they won't break apart like a house will.

    It wouldn't be my ideal but I lived on a small houseboat for a couple of years when I was younger and that was the equivilent of a travel trailer so I am sure I would have no problem adjusting if I had to.

    I think it's awesome. I'm glad that the lady has a house She's pretty creative- good for her! I think that her house is lovely.

    If you've ever been homeless- this must look like a paradise. If the house had a built in heat and ac and internet sure I'd live in it. But I'd also need an alarm system (because it appears insecure). Isn't it also in the middle of nowhere? I wonder how she locks it from the inside?

    It's amazing how she's set up the house out of shipping containers. A simple life does seem appealing sometimes. Most of us are fortunate not to have to live as she does out of necessity. Think of all that we have that we don't even need!

    Sure, offers some very interesting possibilities. Including packing up home and shipping it off to a new location!

    Heard something on the radio a few days back talking about how in Christchurch NZ following the earthquake that a lot of the businesses and residents have taken up occupation in shipping containers as many of the buildings still standing are structurally damaged beyond repair

    It would be better than nothing and probably better than most people in the world have.

    I actually visited a home in Houston that is made from containers. An architect put it together. The containers are cheap enough, but to make it workable architects usually use them as a border with a central area outside of the containers for expansion. Unless you are an architect with a crew to "absorb" them into a bigger project, they can be a little claustraphobic. You still have to roof over them if you want your house to last more than 20 years as the tops of the containers have ditches that hold water that will eventually rust them. But hey, if you want something somewhat temporary it works. container
