Hello there friends! I hope you are doing well. Shipping containers. How could one float? Why would you want to live in one? I previously posted on this before (see article here) https://tidylivingspace.wordpress.com/2016/06/22/shipping-container-homes/ then yesterday I came across an interesting article about low cost living in the Metro newspaper, Tuesday 20th September 2016. Product designer and up cycler Max McMurdo sold his cottage for £50 000 and used that money to buy and renovate a shipping container in Bedford Marino, England. The build took three months from start to finish. The container measures 40ft long by 10ft wide by 10ft high. He previously researched building regulations and spent time in the container at first to get used to the space. What an amazing achievement to have accomplished! In this ever changing world, we have to find ways to live well and within our own personal budgets. Could living in a shipping container on the water be one, cheaper, way to getting your own home and onto the property ladder?
