While we normally cover building homes utilizing shipping containers I couldn’t resist this piece from the travel writer Dave Fox.

He discusses his recent stay in Kuala Lumpur at the 41 Berangan guest house.

If you ever want to design a Malaysian-style courtyard, here is how you do it, 41-Berangan-style: Find a concrete building. Place a shipping container at a right angle to that building. Then place another shipping container at a right angle to the first shipping container. Add a small table and a couple of potted palms, and voila! Instant courtyard!

I don’t know about you, but when I think of sleeping in shipping containers, I think of human trafficking or dead refugees. The padlock on the door did not look inviting. But I had slept in weird places before. Two nights in a shipping container would be… “quirky!”

 

Its a really entertaining piece and just shows you that shipping containers really do have a multitude of uses!!!
