I bet you've never actually thought that those shipping containers you see traveling down the highways, rolling down the railways or even floating on the cargo ships around the world's oceans could actually be constructed into a home! Michele Bertomen and David Boyle did though! They bought an empty 20-by-40-foot lot in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They planned to build something traditional, but when the bid came back at over $300,000, they re-evaluated. The couple decided to try shipping containers--which cost them about $50,000! See their story below!
And that my friends is awesome! Not sure how it would hold up in the cold temperatures we live in though!
