I found out about shipping containers being used for homes. I like the fact they are hurricane proof (as I live in a hurricane zone) I wouldn't mind living in one at all.

Note To Hasepup: I need a sponsor for my own reality show called "Living In A Box"............LOL

"I call it my bunker," says Rosalynn Kearney of her container home.

I think they're awesome. I'd live in one, seriously...in fact, it'd be a great improvement; lol, 'cause I haven't been a "happy camper" for a long time now.

I read a distressing article on heavy rains swamping Haiti's homeless camps. The problems are so overwhelming over there; who knows where all the money raised is really going.

They should use some of the funds for shipping container homes; as they are even earthquake proof.

My appartment isn't bad... but I'd prefer such a great house made of containers.

Hey, nothing beats a nice house for a home; but it's just not a possibility for many people. The main complaint I have about my own home is the fact it's unsafe in hurricane weather (or tornadoes for that matter). I always have to evacuate.

I'd love to live in something that would be like, "bring it on mutha nature, you can't touch this!"

LOL

Hey, whatever floats your boat..... lol.

I'm all for a disaster proof home, a modern Bunker-ville, built to last long after humanity has destroyed everything else.......

And when it is all over, you can look out the window and see that all your neighbors have moved.
