Brilliant, affordable, sustainable, greener home

I just came across this amazing company: Gorilla Designs, rising from the ashes of Hurricane Katrina. They decided to "create a new type of home that better addressed the challenges of the 21st century" and came up with the most amazing idea: shipping containers.

"Shipping containers are typically discarded after only 10-15 years of use. After they are discontinued they simply sit in storage areas or landfills. By recycling these containers, a home can now be made out of recycled material that costs much less than wood and other traditional material. Further, by utilizing this recycled material, a much stronger home can be built that can provide better protection against natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes."

And they're gorgeous! Check out their model home!
