Greetings from Mississippi! 🙂
Builder Daniel Sokol sent the people at Jetson Green an email to share what he’s doing with steel shipping containers for a New Hampshire-based company called LEED Containers. He can convert a 20-foot unit into a small, comfortable home in as little as 25 days from $15,000. Or he can build a bigger home with adjoining containers from about $40,000.
If you’re looking for something that’s cozy and livable, perhaps this is the way to go – particularly if you’re off the beaten path or in need of something that’s off-grid. Available options include a composting waste system, gray water waste system, solar photovoltaics, etc.
LEED Containers intends to build these homes as green as possible, depending on client needs. Products used in these homes include radiant floor heating, FSC flooring, energy efficient windows and doors, LED lighting, recycled glass mosaic tiles, “green” insulation, and no-VOC coatings.
So what do you think? Would you buy this home for $15,000+? 🙂
