Size DOES matter! Is smaller better? That’s NOT what she said!

Size DOES matter! Is smaller better? That’s NOT what she said!

I often wonder where city people are going to go in the future when every single thing has been converted into a luxury hi-rise condo with amenities or a low income housing block. If the alternative to city living means being more practical and frugal with our resources, I fail to see that much of a...

Awesome 20 ft tiny cargo cabin- [HD VID]

Awesome 20 ft tiny cargo cabin- [HD VID]

While searching youtube I found this on a channel called Living big in a tiny house. I want one of these so bad. This seems like the perfect little cabin to escape from the world. The size limits the amount of people you are forced to take with you, and that number seems to 2 perfectly. Ok, maybe you...

Tim Steele designed this cool little Shipping Container cabin in NY. [HD VIDEO]

Tim Steele designed this cool little Shipping Container cabin in NY. [HD VIDEO]

I really like this for multiple reasons. First, it is located in my home State of NY, a place where I will be attempting to build out my first shipping container cabin. Any type of building project can be daunting, but thinking about permits for an odd structure such as this keeps me up at night....

Hello world! We are back from the dead.

Hello world! We are back from the dead.

Containerist.com is about breathing new life into something that has seemingly past it’s prime. Just like old sea cans get abandoned at the seaport for years on end, only to be re-purposed into something awesome & usable like a cabin or a radio station or a market or a store, this site has...

Haiti, Revisited.

Haiti, Revisited.

Soon after the quake in Haiti a contribution of $50 was made from my direction to help those poor souls. That minuscule donation went to the Red Cross and in total the organization received about a half a billion dollars from concerned people and organizations. They have spent over $150 million of it....

Seoul Has Got Flair. Thanks, Germany?

Seoul Has Got Flair. Thanks, Germany?

I woke up this morning to an email from an “M” stating that my site didn’t have any link or article pointing to their site. I checked out the link in the email and to my surprise,  an amazing structure revealed itself in 3/10ths of a second (thanks DSL). My hazy morning eyes sprung...

A Texas Containerist Paradise? Quite Possibly.

A Texas Containerist Paradise? Quite Possibly.

I think I may have found a sort of Shangri-La for those of us dreaming of doing anything we want with a piece of property–building what the heck we want without kissing the asses of the building department to push an idea through. Oh yes… This is a really good find I am going to share with...

Emergency Shelters for Haiti: Yes! But Not So Fast…

Emergency Shelters for Haiti: Yes! But Not So Fast…

I want  to emphasize again as I had first done in my other post about Haiti that I am saddened by the events that have befallen the people there. It’s a tragedy. I really hope things smooth out for the citizens of Haiti; with prospects of “normal” life and a discernible recovery happening...
