http://www.ecocitizenaustralia.com.au has a nice piece on shipping container homes. The article focus’s on how shipping container’s can be used for multiple uses, for homes, commercial and also for remote accomodation. That last one is perhaps the most interesting. Its no secret that shipping container homes are great in extreme circumstances (think Haiti) but also they are ideally suited to unusual conditions given thier modular approach and rapid setup/build time.

A rainforest shipping container retreat.
A good example of this is a remote rainforest reteat that was built in far North Queensland, Australia. The building site was remote and due to the dense rainforest and high rainfall access to the site was not easy. Shipping containers were mounted on concrete filled PVC pipe and created an effective, quick and easy home.
