Does not create jobs, does not increase government revenues just like why there are so many condo developments these days ! They'll come out with all kinds of excuses, like does not conform to building codes and all that BS !

So the best pros is predictable cost, and yet the container homes aren't even really cheaper than traditional homes of the same footage.Homerhomer wrote: ↑Oct 23rd, 2018 10:22 amA quick google shows that shipping containers homes do not have to look like trailer parks, and with a bit of imagination they can be quite beautiful, IMO perfect for cottage settings but also urban if done right. Unlike crappy wood construction housing which will be torn down these can probably last much longer.
