8 eye-catching shipping container homes: A new kind of living
Sure would like to know where to get these at a reasonable price. I have a perfect piece of property they would look great on.
Slight correction... The Travelodge in Uxbridge, Middlesex, was built in 2008. I was working in downtown Uxbridge at the time... saw the building (container stack) go up from my office window. Travelodge claimed that they save 500,000 GBP by going this route.
WOW! I was homeless and living in shelters.........WOW! I have been very lucky and now have an apartment for the last 7 years. THIS would be great to build apartments out o! GO!
This would be great for the homeless in our own country...rather than kicking them out of around the rivers etc.
This seem s like they can use this idea in Haiti if it is cheaper than supplying mobil homes.Ship supplies in them and have contractors ready to make instant homes for people that have nothing!!Ship the building supplies for each one in the container!But do not let the crooked government near the project becasue they would take them and use them for warehouses for themselves...or homes for their maids!
While deployed in Iraq, we had barracks constructed from shipping containers (aka, connex boxes). Not really that awesome...
why not turn the containers (shipping) of food and medicine in to homes for the haitians? Just include in the 'package', modest plumbing and electrical assets, and maybe a solar panel and some batteries, maybe some bedding and 'poof!' instant home....maybe Mr. Babbit could contribute...copyright 2010.
