Shipping containers have been used for years to build houses and businesses in Asia. Set on piers and using the containers ability to be locked to the
piers, they are typhoon proof. So as one poster put it, they wouldn't pass Dade county code for a permit, we can see why. You just can't have a
Hurricane proof house that's against the law.
Glad to see that someone in the US has decided to use the container in this way. Don't know how much they cost used in the US but we can get brand
new 40' - 45' high capacity containers for $2k or less and right now they are over stocked, so it's bargaining time for extra savings.
Thanks OP for bringing this to the attention of the ATS community in the US, you folks need a home that banks can't steal and that you don't have to
mortgage your first born too get a loan for.
