Shipping Container Homes Hold Appeal

Elgin Fox Valley, IL – Growing up in the south side of Chicago, I can attest to the modest split level homes of the suburbs that dotted the landscape.  3 bedrooms, with a 1 and 1/2 baths and a two car garage were the typical size, usually running 900-1200 square feet.  The best part was having school within walking distance, so we never had to take the bus.  Actually, I consider that a plus or a minus in Chicago, depending on the season.

But now, recycled shipping containers  are making a stylish push for those looking to minimize their monthly outlay in mortgage payments or eco footprint while still keeping a roof over one’s head.  Check out CNN’s story here:
