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?!

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.

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....
