I keep telling my husband, especially, given our training as architects, that we can build our dream home within our modest means using shipping containers. I first thought about it 10 years ago, when I was working as a sustainable building design consultant at Architectural Energy Corporation. In fact, I would want to live in a container home even if we had a lot of money. Why? Because it’s a sustainable design choice, and, if done right, so damn-cool! Of course, there is the problem of money when it comes to buying land in the Bay Area – but we will… some day buy a piece of land that no one wants to buy – and then build this container home I have living inside my head! In the meantime, enjoy these photos of what other people have done with container homes!
