Industrial Chic—Shipping Container Homes
Idaho Statesman reporter Katy Moeller writes:
David Herman, the son of a Sacramento, Calif., shipping company executive, has had a lifelong fascination with the giant steel containers used to move goods on ships, trains and trucks. He had a business converting containers into equipment shelters for cellular towers in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He even lived in a shipping container house in central Oregon for a couple of years (an upgrade from a mobile home he described as a “tuna can with windows”).
The article includes more details about a recently approved subdivision of shipping container homes, under development by Herman along the Boise River.
