Interesting Housing starts…

Good evening, Netizens…

I just read where a group in Detroit are going to use empty shipping containers to build a 17-unit condominium project. The price? $1.8 million dollars.

According to the Detroit Free Press, they are going to stack empty shipping containers four high, install windows, doors, plumbing, stairs and heating; toss in landscaping and balconies, too.

Developers plan to offer units measuring 960 to 1,920 square feet. Prices will range from $100,000 to $190,000. All this for (gasp) shipping containers?

I wonder if it would pass inspection by our City Building Inspectors here in Spokane? Could we house homeless people this way?

What do you think of the idea?
