Couple Builds Off-Grid Mobile Home with 2 Shipping Containers


Here’s a great story from Kirsten Dirksen about Paul Chambers, who had began building a home out of two shipping containers as a project, “but when his wife got tired of suburbia and put their four-bedroom home on the market, his project became the couple’s full-time home”.

He’s been transforming two shipping containers into a kitchen/bathroom + bedroom/living room. As Kirsten notes, @they found someone willing to let them park their new home on their rural property in exchange for making improvements to the land@, which goes to show you don’t have to buy land to build your own home.
