off-grid, affordable, and open-source shipping container house Answered


I've launched a kickstarter to build an affordable, off-grid, and open-source shipping container house:

This looks pretty cool. I wouldn't mind this as a little "get away" man cave. Not sure I could live in it year round but it would make for a nice escape from time to time.


I love the container home idea, these incredible containers can faces wind, rain, salt, typhoons, extreme weight, dropping and bumping for years, and can still be a sustainable home. I have a few for sale in Texas that are guaranteed to have NO holes, NO leaks, NO penetrating rust, the doors & locks are all in good working order, and the floors are solid. These containers have not transported any chemicals so are safe for human habitation. If you would like to know more about them call me at 281-259-8550 or email me at beckycoburn@gmail.com

Happy Homesteading!
