How It Started
After using used shipping containers for a number of purposes in a manufacturing operation, I became aware that others had converted shipping containers to homes. I was interested in creating a low-cost, attractive home that would be tornado and hurricane proof. An internet search showed that such living units had been created all over the world. I began to inquire if I could get this type of living space approved in Chesterfield County, South Carolina. I hired an architect (Chris Cook of CBL) and we approached the building authorities who responded positively. I was off on a new adventure.
