New Housing Trend.. Green Friendly and Economically Friendly

Saw this article the other day.. and I have been totally consumed by the possibilities of cheap/safe and readlly available option for home owners..

Typically these containers sit and collect dust on our docks.. they can be picked up for $2000 for a 40" container.

This seems like a perfect fit for projects like Habitat for Humanity and urban driven initiatives..and they can look good too... and I think cool designs could be easily developed w/ tools like this guy did w/ Google Sketch Up.
