Sonoma County is a beautiful and stunning place to live. Because it is, and so many people want to live here, housing is very expensive. This past week end I had an out of town guest who made a joke about how he’d live out of out of a box if he could have our views, weather, food, wine and general quality of life…which got us, or rather me, on the subject of storage containers as a home.
Whether living out of one container from 10 ft, 20 ft, 30 ft, 40 ft long, or two or more put together, shipping containers offer an amazing option to modern day living and right sizing our footprint!
Sustainable to the max, both re-cycling and up-cycling , these used containers could be the answer to affordable housing. And least you think that the interiors need be basic at best, think again.
With full bathrooms and kitchens…
To comfortable sleeping quarters, with industrial touches for ease and to help save space…
and chic, comfortable outdoor living space.
These container homes give new meaning to living the good life and an alternative to traditional construction!
Scott my friend, I know you are a bit more traditional/oriental/hodgepodge in style, and I know you would create your own little bit of heaven in your unique and beautiful way. But this is an alternative to get you out to our left coast, don’t you think?
To all my readers, what do you think of this alternative housing? Do you think it could answer some of our housing needs?
