Interesting, is it insulated? looks pretty cool and the house is Zombie proof too
Yup, insulated and all the stuff a "normal" house has with the advantage of being bug proof and the main structure being fireproof.
so zombies can't break windows??
Zombies use Apple. You KNOW I'm right.
- Fan testimonial: "I bet Paula is smokin hot!! Long live Paula"
Probably gets horrible cell reception inside.
This is a wonderful way to build a house, recycle materials, and reduce energy and resource consumption. Now, it it was buried a couple of meters underground, it would be almost free to cool and heat!
I bet it's freezing in the winter.
it's gonna be like an oven with all the metal surrounding in the summer.
It's a great way to build now. It can be done for less than a "normal" house and far quicker. There are time lapse vids of a 2K+ sq. ft. house being placed on the foundation and affixed in a day. Sure a hell can't build the shell of a house that size in a day. Some companies even send out the interiors complete and all that happens is plumbing and electrical gets hooked up when each module is attached.
Plan on doing a container home when I finish school and get to where I will be for a long time.
that, my friends is a cool looking house. Chive On.
You need to find the one from Doomsday Preppers – Crazy people but that was just wow
seen it… this one looks like something you might actually want to live in though. I do wonder about heating and cooling
that couple was amazing. crazily dedicated, but prepared.
Or, you could give that money to the church and help people who truly need it! God bless those who actually use their time to benefit other
I think he doesn't want us to buy homes. Instead we donate all that money to the church and become homeless ourselves. Then we can go back to the church and essentially ask for some of the money back to get something to eat? Fuck I'm so lost by his message…
Or, you could just give the money straight to the people who need it rather than using a middle man worshipping the false invisible sky wizard!
Christian Churches are some of the largest and most effective charitable organizations in the world…. and yes I am an athiest. This guy is reaching but let him believe what he wants.
Giving me Thumbs down. How open minded and "progressive" of you.
Behold the censorship of public opinion! Also, suck it.
ah the sky wizard defense, tenth grade atheism at its best.
There are grades in Atheism now? 'False invisible sky wizard' is just 1 of many names I have for any so called God.
let me rephrase that. ah the sky wizard defense, a teenage attempt to appear witty when the subject of theology comes up
Teenage? See, this is what people of faith do when someone challenges them, belittle the non-believer. How about coming up with an argument against Atheism yourself?
let me get this straight, I made a smartass remark to your smartass remark and you got offended?
Though I am on the edge ( Im Agnostic ) and believe that yes Churches do help those that follow their faith – I would never give money to a church to have this kind of thing done – that is part of the biggest problem in our country today is that there is NO seperation of church and politics no matter how you try to say there is.
still where the fuck did this come from. a Troll attempting a thread jack would be my guess
Sez the guy spending his time on theCHIVE…
God doesn't exist and religion and church is pure bullshit, plain and simple!
Says the lost and wayward soul
Wrong. Says the person using his brain instead of believing in talking snakes and a jewish zombie, who comes back to life after being dead 3 days. Use your brain dummy.
i'll cum on you bro. nice creamy facial here for you. LOL
Great concept. How much and how can we look into this?
It's usually about $2500 per shipping container. They're all the rage with the apocalypse preppers
That is pretty nice but it's not exactly a novel idea , they have what look to be entire apartment buildings made of out of them http://www.prairiemod.com/.a/6a00d8341bf72a53ef01…
Here one from 07 that isn't anywhere as nice but just shows they have been around for a good bit. http://inhabitat.com/lot-ek-shipping-container-ho…
I look at #15 and can only imagine smashing my shin bones on that bed footing
Whom may I contact to have one like that built? I love the industrial look on the inside…
In the time it took you to construct that comment a simple google search would yield such an answer.
He made his own and is in the business and can assist you.
I guess if your neighbours are dicks, all you need to move house is a crane and a convoy for a day.
There is a non-profit charity in Fort Worth that converts IDC containers into simple, sustainable housing for the homeless. The organization is called A Place To Sleep (www.aplacetosleep.org) and is a fantastic idea for the use of these converted homes. Here is a video of local news coverage (CBS-TV 11; KTVT) of the start of the organization and their mission.
a hammock installed in the living room? heck yeah!
what about rust?
what about crust?
So can you still lock in the metal doors?
I know they normally lock from the outside, but maybe you could modify it, or just use it as extra security when you're away.
Add some solar panels and a well and we are talking self contained container house… and it looks really good. I would think the roof helps with cooling and is unique….im sure its easily well insulated. They make really good insulation these days that are around a quarter of an inch thick.
perfect for the zombie attack
Cool idea. Interesting on the inside. Too bad it may be the ugliest building in the history of architecture.
Agreed. I have seen much better looking container homes. This is one of the ugliest on the outside. Inside is pretty cool.
They were trying to do this in AZ when I lived there… no way in hell it would be efficient enough to handle a summer.
Put it underground… and it would work perfectly
I bet it is CRAZY loud inside when it rains.
I was wondering about that. Those things echo every little tap from the outside.
That would be a big "AWESOME" in my book. The sound of rain on a tin roof when I was a kid was the BEST thing. If it got too loud, ear plugs!!
Oh yeah zombie proof for sure
What happens in a lightning storm..?
I'm sure it's grounded…
I sell these containers in Houston. The containers being used here are "one way containers" and run about $4500 per container. Insulation is not a problem if you paint the exterior with a ceramic paint designed for insulation.
I am looking to build a house on our 35 acre ranch and this would be perfect. What would $80,000 get me as far as size and interior?
it would get you 17.77777777777777777777777777777777777777 containers
$20,000 could get you a 3,200 sqft interior shell before plumbing and electrical or anything else
You have a website or anything?
Don't beleave the sales man
