A guest post by Dan from thedailyprep.com- Bug out Cabins!

There seems to be many commercial projects that cater to food like this one located on 23rd street right next to the flatiron building. It always makes me happy to see a shipping container re-purposed like this in a busy area serving hundreds of people...

Tiny House Tour: The Pinafore [HD VID] 16 mins!
