A trade imbalance has led to shipping containers piling up on US shores. Not to worry, “entrepreneurs to the rescue!” Via Yahoo Real Estate, here some businesses that are exploiting the shipping container niche:
- Alex Klein of Container Home Consultants Inc. has been involved in shipping container conversions for 30 years, while Heather Levin said she appreciates container homes after noticing how much of her hard-earned dollars went to a bank as mortgage loan interest.
- Victor Wallace of ContainerHomes.info authored the free downloadable book, “The 30 Most Influential Shipping Container Homes Ever Built!” His website presents extensive tutorials and videos for container conversions and also offers a free download of the book with designs from around the world.
- 21st Century Homes & Structures builds modular homes and claims it is the “original approved shipping container home manufacturer in New York… certified since 1985.”
