Container homes aren’t anything new by a long shot, but I hadn’t looked at them in a while because they are so widely covered. After coming across one as of late I decided to take another look. What I found? Some really interesting stuff has been done, there is of course a lot of really big homes, this method allows you to make really large spaces cheaply. But single units that can be transported are of interest to me; with economies swaying this was and that way, jobs about as stable as a mental patient and loyalty having a dollar price I need flexibility to move with my house.
I don’t want to have to worry about if my house will sell or if I can find a new house in time. Instead, I simply buy a plot of unimproved land, pay a hundred or so dollars a year in taxes on it and just keep it. If I own 20 of these I instantly have a 20 vacation spots ( for $2000 in taxes a year, less than what normal folks pay on their homes annually) and potentially one of them might end up being desirable and I can sell it at a premium.
I was really impressed with how nice some of these look in the below videos, so check them out. I also found this great website all about this stuff, he runs a blog too, but doesn’t update it very often unfortunately. containerist.com
