update: I so could sooooo live in this house made of containers


Could shipping containers be the answer? I am not just talking about these in place of the FEMA asbestos trailers, but as a well designed, able to fit into New Orleans alternative. Brad call (985)807-4805 me – let’s talk about this option. Talk about “Green,” We live near a dang port – oh wait a minute, we have a port with shipping containers readily available. Certainly there are enough bright and creative artists and architects in town who could use their imagination and make a shipping container into a shotgun house or the housing development that will come back whether you want it to or not. Just saying….What say you?

  1. I’ve seen truck trailer boxes similar in size converted to apartments. I had one for a shop. As an apartment, we;re talking 8×40 feet. the narrow footprint takes getting used to. For a family, you’d need at least two or three of them, and then you’d have to WANT TO be happy in it.

    It’s an interesting thought, though.

  2. I was in one for a local home show. It was just adorable. The inside was fabulous and no you couldn’t tell you were in a container, it was more like a cabin. It was also equipped with solar panels and had the potential for off grid living (hence my interest). I’d do it in a heartbeat.
