Mobile housing?

Recommended Posts

I saw these in New Havne a couple weeks ago and now they are stacking them up. The building is 3 containers wide and about 6 long. Dont know who would want to live there.

They make garages out of them here. Stack them like 3 high on each side and put some rafters on top of them and tin. Then you got a place to put your trucks and parts or whatever in the containers.

My dad wants to build one of those. There a couple of them in town.

Papa would build one but the town he lives in wont allow it. My idea is put one down in the woods and paint the roof green....nobody would see.

What about in the winter? :whistling:

I watched a show a while back on HGTV or DIY and they were building those things for rich young couples.

I saw those, last week. Thought I was in another country for a moment. A barn/garage is one thing, but living in a sea container? Five stories tall?

Don't know what the going rate is on a container, but I know where a 40' chassis is with a "for sale" sign on it...$1500 is all they are wanting for it. Yeah, I'm tempted. That & a 40' container would make moving a lot simpler...and I could set the container on the ground, run power to it, and have a shop set up in no time when we get wherever it is she wants us to move to. Won't happen for a while yet...but probably in 2-5 years. And if we end up out west in timber country, weld a few log bunks onto the chassis and I'd be ready to get to work...
