Will these be the Lustron homes of the 21st Century?

$800K for 59th and Charlotte? You're shittin' me.

I did like the realtorspeak description "The containers were fused. Fused, doesn't that mean welded.

Shipping container homes like these are a complete joke. It's one thing to place a couple together, cut holes between them for doorways and call it a house. These are basically new steel frame construction with a few panels from shipping containers for decor 'cause its the trendy thing to do. Nothing green or recycled about them.

Sounds to me like an upscale deviation from a mobile home. And for $800k?!?

@ 9:56 nailed it, the original coverage of this thing admitted that these were custom built modules designed to look like shipping containers.

The whole thing was just a scam by some rich "artsy" bitch and her architect to get coverage in a few magazines several years ago.

This has nothing to do with the real movement to re-purpose the shipping containers you see stacked around everywhere.
