Harry Freakstorm: [media.treehugger.com image 650x448]Nice but I guess the drunks in Austin don't fall down stairs. IIRC Dram Insurance goes way up when drunks have the ability to fall way down.

Tobin_Lam: Where I'm living now, almost everything is shipping containers. It isn't a big deal. You just cut holes where you want doors, windows, and utilities, install walls and fixtures, and you're done. All you did was cut out building the structure.
DarkVader: And it's butt-ugly.I'm sorry, shipping containers aren't pretty. They're not designed to be, and that's ok in the hold of a cargo ship.But they should never be used for building materials. You know who else builds things out of shipping containers?Get your mind out of the Godwin. Those nutjob militia idiots love to build with shipping containers, they're slightly bullet resistant and will also store lots of stuff for their end of the world scenarios.So sure, if you're a Cliven Bundy wanna-be, go for it. Otherwise, just use them to ship stuff. There are MUCH more attractive and useful ways to use steel to build stuff.
