DropBox Inc. Presents 5 Shipping Container Homes from Around the Web

DropBox Inc. may not (yet) build homes from shipping containers, but we’re amazed by some of the residential creations we’ve seen online. In this week’s Shipping Container Mods Blog, we'd like to take a look at five of our favorites.

1) This South Redondo Beach duplex is made from 14 shipping containers

Three generations + fourteen shipping containers = one amazing duplex. The Dowd family may have helped pave the way for future residents of Redondo Beach to be able to build container homes of their own.

5) Newport shipping container flats to tackle homelessness

In Newport, Wales, United Kingdom there’s a project in the works to help combat homelessness by providing shipping container housing. This article talks about “Amazing Grace Spaces” which is a charitable organization seeking to help people facing eviction, mortgage repossession, relationship breakdowns or those unable to find affordable housing.
