This is what I live in here in Baghdad the US government set these up as a temporary living shelters. I like it so much that they had offered me a new place to live and I turned it down(very quiet).

That house on stilts looks to be made of wood ... I would think that the termites would eat it up in no time here in the Phils.

Here's an outfit in Manila that is doing turnkey container housing: http://indigohouse.y...ainer-house.php container1.jpgcontainer2.jpg

 

That's so neat.... I hope they'd have 'em in SM-Cebu too *or do they have them already? with more choices on dimensions, and price (around P50k-P75k, quick no hassle thing, life span for at least 3 yrs, for storage or crashers).

All you need in an empty, flat lot behind your property.

Current shortage of containers in Cebu pushing the prices up drastically due to demand from goods going to Singapore.

I couldn't imagine anyone wanting to live in a steel shipping container ... but they are great as temporary jails.

 

These shipping containers used to be called a "Conex" back in the Vietnam War era. Used mostly as parts storage, they also could serve as a temporary jail cell. Hot as hell inside, but a great form of punishment (although not very humane)

 

"Long Binh Jail" (LBJ) inmates spent their days in tedious work details and mundane recreation. For those not inclined to follow the rules, there was always "Silver City," the maximum confinement area made up of converted Conex shipping containers, where temperatures could exceed 110 degrees. Some inmates considered this a form of torture, and Silver City dramatically contributed to LBJ's reputation as the worst place to be in Vietnam.

Now I see some company is selling larger steel shipping containers as make-shift jail cells. Of course, unlike Vietnam, this version has AC:

Shipping Container Housing? .... I think I will pass!

Well, you must admit, for temporary shelter it ain't bad.

And if you are to make a shelter for your relatives in Philippines, it's not a bad upgrade at all.

I bet close to 100% of them will say, HELLL YEAAAAAHHHHH! lol

Personally, I would be a bit embarrassed to tell anyone that I put my wife's family into a shipping container
