Spoiler alerts. First, this isn’t a tiny container house.

 

The second spoiler alert is that this video doesn’t give the cost of the completed project.  What we know from other container housing projects is that they are significantly higher than a HUD Code manufactured home.

But what makes this one interesting is that:

·        It was a DIY project.

·        So, the construction cost may well have been ‘closer’ to a similar sized manufactured home, and less than a conventional house.

Here is what their YouTube webpage said.

Seven gray metal rectangles create a stacked array of straight lines on a quiet street in New Orleans. These shipping containers once traveled along the Mississippi River.

Now stationary, they make up the extraordinary home of Kicker Kalozdi, founder of premium bag company DamnDog, and his wife Anne Kalozdi, who is a biomedical engineer. They designed and built this house made out of shipping containers… despite having had no real experience building a house before!

It’s an interesting design.  Another reason to showcase this is that this video has had approaching 300,000 views in about a week online.

We’ve observed previously on the Daily Business News on MHProNews that container housing – especially single-section container homes – reflect an kind of American search for the single section HUD Code manufactured home alternative. A single sectional home looks better than a container does for a house. That’s a fundamentally educational or marketing issues. It is a wake up call. It is an opportunity in disguise.
