Living Green: Shipping Container Homes
Cutting edge home is made from recycled shipping containers.
Shipping containers are extremely durable designed to withstand high winds, salt water and hold 60,000 lbs. so why not stack them and turn them into a house?
That's just what a Gainesville, Florida man did and when you take a tour of his house, you may be surprised at all that it offers.
"I wanted to have a house that was affordable, that was safe but that could handle any natural disaster and then I wanted a green house. And this fits all three of those," said Tom Fox, who lives inside 12 upcycled shipping containers that were just sitting in a shipping yard in Jacksonville.
