Shipping Container Homes Unveiled

Here in los angeles housing is expensive but there’s an alternative which could save about thirty percent on construction cost shipping container homes CBS News Tuesday market shows us more as the cost of living rises the way we live is changing people are living in modular homes prefab homes and even shipping container homes. containers get all the headlines countless shipping containers come into the ports of LA and Long Beach and many of them stay but.

Some are being repurposed into everything from retail spaces to homes when Paula approached me about a shipping container home I thought this is insane and then I met Peter and I still thought it was insane. Matt and Paula dowd are using shipping containers to build two shipping container homes in Redondo Beach one for them and one for Grandma. I can age in place and my grandchildren will grow up here and I’ll be with my daughter and my son inlaw. they’re building with architect.

Peter demaria but it’s an idea that still stirs controversy. in this area you mostly find Mediterranean or craftsman style homes and you bring something like this to the city and they’re like, yeah I don’t know? it took several trips to the City Council to get their property approved with multiple modifications to the design and Matt had the same concerns as the city. my opinion was oh my gosh it’s going to be boxy and corrugated but many homes built from shipping containers look like this and.

This all of these homes were designed by the architect very few people be able to tell wow that’s a shipping container home. containers are the thing that really breaks down the door and people say maybe I can do the little bit differently and I’m not going to sacrifice quality and I’m not going to sacrifice on the size of the house and all of it translates into doing it less expensively. most containers can be covered with any surface like.

Wood stucco or vinyl siding and it’s affordable while maintaining quality in general they’re around 30 percent less than traditional construction a great value but the quality of construction is a heavy gauge steel that that blows away wood frame house a comforting thought in quakeprone Southern California and by upcycling metal containers it’s one of the greenest options available so the containers 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 and upcycling it as opposed to cutting down five or six acres of forest every time we put up a new wood frame house. DeMaria says there’s a revolution to change how we live and the Dowd’s are early adopters and I think this is how a great progress is made really this happen overnight and the fact that we’re building shipping container homes makes it less.
