Lexington Kentucky Real Estate Show 16 Shipping Container Home

Lexington Kentucky Real Estate Show 16 Shipping Container Home

In this episode I meet with Bob Eidson of ReContained and Emerge Contracting to check out their latest project at 136 York Street.

A shipping container home is just that, a home made from shipping containers.  The home featured in this episode was made by combining two shipping containers side by side and placing them on a traditional footer.  The two containers are then seam welded together making a water proof structure.  Next, the cut out the windows and doors.  From that step forward it is very similar to a traditional stick built home to finish the interior.  One small difference is that the home is extremely well insulated and Bob estimates that the utility bill for this home will be $20-40 a month depending on seasonality.

I think that this is one of the coolest homes I have ever seen!  The cool factor combined with the energy efficiency make for a really unique and awesome shipping container home.

If you would like to see what the finished product looks like just tell me where to send the follow up video and photos by click here: I WANT TO SEE WHAT THE HOME LOOKS LIKE FINISHED
