There are many "homeless" who would never keep the utilities paid, or the toilet in working order, or even want to stay in one spot very long. The place would be destroyed in less than a year. A big cardboard box down by the river, with a blanket and a 12-pack or a pint of vodka or gin would make them happier--and maybe walking distance of the dumpster at BurgerKing.
Awesome idea, l can see the ads now.

I don't want a large place to live. But regulations in many cities and counties now demand it. It's frustrating. All I need is a roof over my head, a bathroom and small kitchenette. And i would like a garage as well. I've been designing houses over the past decade and it struck me that the garages are always bigger than the house. LOL
Well, I do live up north and am a guy, so I do require a place to tinker with things.
I could easily see this solution implemented here, cargo containers are abundant and a waste, no one wants to ship them back to china. So why not use them in cheep low-cost to no income housing.edit on 26-2-2014 by benrl because: (no reason given)
I think it is a great start. Give homeless people a secure shelter to sleep in and keep their belongings in. As well as recycling materials on top of it. A win/win.
