Cargotecture — the practice of repurposing shipping containers into living spaces — has a certain appeal to minimalist homeowners who value sustainability. The nearly-indestructible steel structures are eco-friendly since they are recycled and recyclable. They’re also rather easy to find and transportable – i.e., they’re purposively built to be moved worldwide!

When it comes to housing, shipping containers are incredibly customizable — offering a wide range of layouts, sizes, and endless architectural possibilities. Nowadays, it’s not uncommon to find anything from a tiny off-grid shipping cube in a remote location, a mobile working space, to a high-end mansion in a bustling urban area.

However the biggest benefit is probably being able to live mortgage-free – which for many people translates to decades of lifetime recouped from the onerous task of repayment that could take a large percentage of a working income for perhaps 20 years.

And since nothing is as inspiring as getting a chance to hear from people who actually build shipping container homes, Mat and Danielle from Exploring Alternatives did just that. They visited a Toronto shipping container yard run by Storstac, which is a company that sells and builds shipping container structures.

Below are some of the takeaways from their interaction with Anthony Ruggiero from Storstac:

• Shipping containers come in different standard sizes—but you can request custom length to meet your architectural needs.

• The material of shipping containers is known as COR-TEN steel – a special steel that is highly resistant to elements and harsh conditions. It needs to be – to survive exposure to ocean spray! They are designed to last for 10 to 20 years of shipping use with little-to-no degradation. This means that you get a sturdy and durable house to last a lifetime.

• You have the option to either buy new or used shipping containers. New ones have only been used once and are best for living spaces while used ones have been in service for at least a decade – and you have no idea what was shipped in them.

• Rapid deployment. A container conversion can be created off-site and then delivered to its final destination complete – so rather than a build that might take many months, once the concrete pad is put down, the container can be dropped and the utilities hooked up and you are done!

Although shipping containers have a ton of advantages, they’re not without blemish. For example, some neighbors may not appreciate their aesthetics – and working with steel (cutting, welding) is not as simple for many DIYers as woodwork. There’s also the issue of building code challenges regarding the use of nontraditional materials (so check your local codes first).

This Crazy Off Grid Device Literally Makes Drinkable Water From Fresh Air:

According to NASA, the U.S. is expecting a 100-YEAR LONG MEGADROUGHT.


It's already begun. Ask the farmers in California. They know.

Every survivalist knows that water is of critical importance. You NEED an independent water source that you can count on!

As an interesting "survival rehearsal" - imagine that you turned the tap on right now and nothing came out. How long would you last?

But what if there was another water source literally hidden in plain sight. That's right, I'm talking about the atmosphere!

The amazing thing about getting water from the natural moisture in the air... is that it is ALWAYS available.

This gives you real water security!

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)

After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.

As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.

Even more interesting: The reason why top army officials are not deaf after decades of hearing machine guns, bombs going off and helicopter noises…

Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
