There is a question I need to ask myself . . . How do I want to live in the future? If I can keep up my minimalist discipline, a shipping container home could be the way to go. With out answering if I do or do not want to live in a shipping container, I am going to research it.
Where to buy, how much, dimensions, zoning laws, water and electricity, off the grid?
These are a few of the things I need to question. It sounds like a good idea right now. There was a story in the news earlier this year talking about a starbucks coffee made out of shipping containers. I believe this one was made from two containers, but buildings can be from one container to a potential hotel city of containers.
What other benefits besides the environmental impact does living off the grid offer? What are the main disadvantages?
