Marginalia: A House Made Out of Shipping Containers

Heard this on NPR’s Science Friday. A couple built their home in New York City entirely out of shipping containers.

I love this story. I could live in a house like this. And, it cost a fraction of what a traditional house would have cost them. Excellent. Be green, be lean and be financially savvy all at the same time. And, gain the added bonus of having a unique home that people admire.

If you’re really into shipping containers, here’s Rose George discussing them with Terry Gross on Fresh Air. And, here’s George’s book. Who knew this was such a hot topic?
