A Tulsa-area couple is building their new home out of, among other things, old cargo containers:
Their two-story, 2,650-square-foot house will be constructed from almost entirely recycled materials, including five shipping containers — two on bottom and three on top, built upon a 40-by-40-foot slab facing southwest.
They are, of course, blogging the construction. Last week, the second container arrived on site:
The shipping list from its last voyage is still attached to the door. It hauled furniture, 22 chocolate brown sofas, 16 love-seats, 9 chairs, and 6 ottomans, to be exact. That’s more furniture than we will probably have in all five of our containers!
They’re hoping to have the housewarming, or at least the first-story-warming, in December.
