  • I LOVE THIS…… a single female growing wearing of tossing money away on rent…..I am seriously studying the positive aspects of alternative housing. I have downsized “really UPsized” to a 600sqft apt and could easily go to 500sqft.

    Less stuff, less upkeep means MORE LIFE!

    I’m loving the simple life! @

    Yes it does, I like the San Antonio guest house, I wish Florida would allow them – too restrictive hurricane codes here !!

    I too, live the simple life, currently in ~500 ft2 and could go to the size of this guest house without difficulty, or about half of my home. Living simple allows me to work two days a week, and have the other five off. Love it !!

    This Shipping Container made Home, was the very first post I saw, in the beginning of my research into Container Living. So much inspiration grew from this one simple find. I’m in my 3rd year of personal research of Shipping Container Homes and each time I see this, my inspiration is renewed! It has taken me as far as starting part-time University Courses studying Architecture itself! What an innovative design. Thank you for this post.
