Weather Channel features Shipping Container House

Shipping Container Photo 03By Brent Sauser

I am very grateful to a good friend and follower of (Tatiana Maha’a) who forwarded to me this great You Tube video of a shipping container home in Atlanta, Georgia.  As I continue to question people if they would be willing to live in a shipping container house, I still get that deer-in-the-headlights, turned-up-nose response.  They can’tShipping Container Photo 05 imagine it, because it doesn’t fit the culture of the two story home with a white picket fence.  We still have a lot of work to do.

I have attempted to share several conceptual designs in various configurations using shipping containers on, but these are only renderings of what could be constructed.  The video (below) shows actual shipping container residential construction.  Shipping Container Photo 04Take a close look at how the home is organized and how much room can be achieved in a width of 16 feet.  Considering the very low cost of shipping containers delivered to site, this presents an interesting option for comfortable living, while recycling materials that would otherwise remain unused at most ports.  I invite you to watch the video and see how nice shipping container living can be.
