Stalled ambitious 21 container project in Brooklyn NY is active again.

Although North Carolina might be the friendliest place for shipping container homes right now, Brooklyn has the most awesome projects. Keeping up with the interesting architecture in beyond trendy Williamsburg is practically a full time job these days. After reading this New York Times article depicting this 21 container project on Monitor Street in...

Rough-Trade NYC, 20 Foot Containers pimped out! [VIDEO][PIX]

Rough-Trade NYC, 20 Foot Containers pimped out! [VIDEO][PIX]

  I heard that the new Rough-Trade record shop in Brooklyn had 20 foot containers that were re purposed for a variety of uses, so I snapped a few shots and a short video with my Iphone so we could all take a closer look. There is a music store (a tiny Main Drag Music) where you can try out different instruments and effects, a coffee shop, an office,...

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

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

Another inspiring tiny house video! “The Pinafore” really resonates with me. These windows are so awesome, it really makes all the difference. If any of you know where to get these, I would be very interested in them for my own future build. As cool as they look, they add so much character and charm to what otherwise might be a run of the...

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 drawback. The only problem I see with tiny living...

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 could stuff 4 people in there, but only if they...

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. I can only imagine the disbelief of the clerks over...

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 been passed on to me to give it another go. During...

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. That’s a good thing. Doctors Without Borders...
