In keeping with all the principals of my new “design/building philosophy” (not quite that well baked) I’ve come up w/ this new idea for our future garage which I’ve been floating by my wife.
For all the smartie pants, this is old, but for those who don’t know, the U.S. imports something like 100 times more goods than it exports. So that leaves our country with tons of empty shipping containers which are very costly to ship back to the country of origin. Due to this phenomena, smart designer types (like my architect) have come up w/ neat ways to use these containers. Even the brits have developed this odd, freaky container housing projects, which reminds me of something out of 28 days later.
So my idea isn’t a housing project or to develop some nasty germ warfare concoction to wipe out a city. It’s simply to use 2 or 3 containers as our garage. These would need to be attached and lots of walls cut out and some serious designing. Not to mention, you’d want it to not stick out like an orange shipping container with “HYUNDAI” on the side. Or maybe that’d be cool.
In fear of overwhelming my architect, i’ll keep this on the down low for now.
