Building with recycled cargo shipping containers is worth taking a look at if you are contemplating a new green home.

Good resource is the Residential Shipping Container Primer website. A SHOWCASE OF SHIPPING CONTAINER HOMES AND BUILDINGDS, AND A DO IT YOURSELF (DIY) REFERENCE FOR CONVERTING RECYCLED INTERMODAL CARGO SHIPPING CONTAINERS INTO BUILDINGS AND ARCHITECTURE.

Lots of great example buildings, details, facts, and links to other articles. They have something new that you can setup your own project wiki to get help with your project if you are considering a design build project.

I was surprised to learn from my sister that she just acquired a modern prefab home. Being ignorant of the newer types of houses open to homeowners, I was pleasantly shocked to see that the house was beautiful and relatively affordable! I thought it was going to be just so-so, but I'm glad I was wrong. I am now a convert and would want a similar house for me.
