Commonly used to house Army troops and other contractors, these repurposed containers feature pared-down designs and basic amenities: a living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
If you’re not as DIY-savvy as Lulu, US companies like New Jersey-based Sea Box, Inc. and New York’s based 21st Century Homes & Structures construct these homes, which are said to be eco-friendly, sturdy and disaster-proof (a plus in this climate).
Of course, they’re cheap too: 21st Century Homes & Structures’ containers start at $89 per square foot (up to $1,280 square ft.), which comes to about $100,000.
