I thought I would share this with you guys:

https://www.simplemost.com/amazon-deliver-tiny-house/

They say there has been talented smart people that would know how to turn intermodal containers into tiny houses and make them possible to live in with the right stuff. Amazon wants at least $40,000 to cover the container and the shipping fee. On the other hand, I don't think it's too bad to try to live in one that is completely empty and has no furnishings, right?!
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

I lived in one in Iraq for 10 months. I swore never again. LOL

Although these are probably insulated and don't come with a roommate. So that's a positive I suppose.

Also, it is basically a non-mobile mobile home.

I saw a Uhaul container of around 8 x 10, covered in an orange water proof shroud. The first thing I thought was, "I could live in that thing." But where could I get one??

im currently trying to save up some money for some land in the northwest, and i am going to try and build a shipping container dwelling. have to learn how to weld first tho.....

its fucking cheap, like $2000 per container. outfit the inside with a fram, drywall and insulation, an voila! house.

Get some solar and and a well to go along with it. thats true living.

Watch out world....I have plans....

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$100.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

This shit is getting real, under self isolation - no, it's self quarantine now - thanks to some jerk who came to the Plant knowingly sick.
He has judged himself, as for me... my locker has been emptied because I am not putting up with that bullshit.
Looks like I just decided to take an early retirement, so on to greener pastures I go......
Be safe out there, perhaps we'll meet again when times are better.
I hope that y'all are good and safe wherever you may happen to be. Take care of yourselves, may the wind always be at your back <3
When Democrat and Republican politicians argue and fuck up so badly we end up taking 1st place in Plague Inc irl:

So, here's something great! After finally saying NO to eating carbs and sugar this morning (since that's mostly all there is to eat at home) and instead bought and ate vegetables, I actually don't have cravings anymore!

All I've eaten today is two sweet potatoes and some broccoli, and I don't have any food cravings, and I'm not lethargic!

aww i really like your new profile picture.
Beautiful day to be alive and listen to the birds chirp, remembering to be grateful for what we have and not worry about what we have not.
Healthy in PDX. Back here after years to keep track of those bugging out and to check in on those still on the road.
