Recycling Shipping Containers Into Office, Residential, Medical Space

You've seen photos of shipping containers stacked high on the decks of ocean-going vessels? Or perhaps being moved by rail?

Did you know there is a growing movement to convert these sturdy metal boxes into mini offices, clinics and residences?

A fascinating trend. I actually had considered acquiring one to put on a piece of family farmground in southeastern Ohio, and convert to living space. That was after I heard they were being converted to medical clinic space and transported to 3rd world nations and pretty much dropped in anywhere they need to be.

But use as offices within larger warehouse, or connecting several to create a larger office scape? I LOVE the creativity! Think about it -- in a sense, it is the ultimate way to recycle....
