here in Los Angeles housing is expensivebut there’s an alternative which could save about thirty percent onconstruction cost shipping container homes CBS News Tuesday market shows usmore as the cost of living rises the way we live is changing people are living inmodular homes prefab homes and even shipping container homes. containers get allthe headlines countless shipping containers come into the ports of LA andLong Beach and many of them stay but some are being repurposed intoeverything from retail spaces to homes when Paula approached me about ashipping container home I thought this is insane
and then I met Peter and I stillthought it was insane. Matt and Paula dowd are using shipping containers to build twoshipping container homes in Redondo Beach one for them and one for Grandma. I can age in placeand my grandchildren will grow up here and I’ll be with my daughter and my soninlaw. they’re building with architect Peter DeMaria but it’s an idea thatstill stirs controversy. In this area you mostly find Mediterranean or craftsman style homes and you bringsomething like this to the city and they’re like, quot;yeah I don’t know?quot; it tookseveral trips to the City Council to get their property approved with multiplemodifications to the design and Matt had
the same concerns as the city. quot;my opinionwas oh my gosh it’s going to be boxy and corrugated but many homes built fromshipping containers look like this and this all of these homes were designed bythe architect very few people be able to tell wow that’s a shipping container home. containers are the thing that reallybreaks down the door and people say maybe I can do the little bit differently andI’m not going to sacrifice quality and I’m not going to sacrifice on the size ofthe house and all of it translates into doing it less expensively. most containerscan be covered with any surface like
wood stucco or vinyl siding and it’saffordable while maintaining quality in general they’re around 30 percent less thantraditional construction a great value but the quality of construction is aheavy gauge steel that that blows away wood frame house acomforting thought in quakeprone Southern California and by upcyclingmetal containers it’s one of the greenest options available so thecontainers become a means to an end we’re changing the way we think about building and we’re saving the planet. we’re taking material andupcycling it as opposed to cutting down
five or six acres of forest every timewe put up a new wood frame house. DeMaria says there’s a revolution tochange how we live and the Dowd’s are early adopters and I think this is how agreat progress is made really this happen overnight and the fact that we’rebuilding shipping container homes makes it less expensive so that we can actually buildtwo homes and be able to have three generations on one piece of propertywhere I can run to the store and take care of her and I mean it’s gonna begreat.

DIY Make Your Own EOS Lip Balm Recycle Old EOS Container
Hi guys it’s Caitlyn, and I have like a reallyexciting tutorial for you. I have been wanting to do this for so long,I have tried so many trials and I finally found a way that I really like and I reallywant to share with you guys. And it is DIY eos’s. I have seen so many tutorials for this and Ihave never found one that I like and I think that the way I found how to do it is supercheap. I didn’t have to spend any money I found thisstuff around my house. I mean that could be different for some butI just love it and I want to show you close ups.
This one was the first one that I made andit didn’t turn out as well as the one that I made today. But this is how the first onelooks. I mean its still good but it’s not as goodas this one. It just shows you that the more you practice the better this DIY will be.Because it doesn’t always turn out good the first time. You know? This is the second one and I think it looksexactly like a eos. I mean the consistency will vary dependingon how much product you used or whatever, and it’s not going to be exactly like a eos.
Eos’s are $3, I think thats a very affordableprice. So if you want the real thing, $3 is a greatprice. These aren’t going to match up to them, they’renot perfect. But it is a fun way and if you are feelingcreative and you want to recycle and reuse the ones that you have already used up, thisis a great DIY for you. So if you would like to see how to make yourown eos continue to watch. For supplies you will need: A pan
A glass container double sided tape saran wrap Petroleum Jelly or Vaseline an empty eos container crayons, this part is up to you. If you don’twant your eos to have a tint to it just use white. I wanted mine to have a little bitof pink in it though, so thats totally up to you.
lighter and finally, some nail clippers and and pairof scissors. To start the DIY you want to clean out therest of your product. I used a spoon, you can use whatever you have.You can use your fingers or paper towels. Just get the product out as best you can. Then use the scissors to cut out this plasticdivider. It just gets in the way of the eos and you want to get rid of it. and your kind of left with these plastic pokythings that are sticking out and the scissors
couldn’t get so you want to take your nailclippers and just get rid of those and cut as close as you can. After that you want to go and wash it outwith soap and water. The next step is to put water in your panand put it on a medium heat. For your eos use about a scoop and a halfof the Petrolum Jelly or Vaseline per eos container. That should be enough. For crayons I would actually recommend usinga little bit more than what I showed in this clip.
