Ireland’s first shipping container home was donated to the St Vincent de Paul charity and will be used as housing for the homeless. The shipping container home was designed by Architectural firm Ceardean Architects, and built by a 60 person team of contractors and craftsmen. The whole process took just 3 short days.
“According to Derek Trenaman of Ceardean Architects, one of the main aims of the project was to serve as a “prototype” for communities looking for new and affordable ways of easing the housing crisis. They will be releasing the plans to encourage other such DIY projects, and Trenaman hopes that it will bring a community’s plumbers, welders, plasterers, and others together to build more such homes, working in a reciprocal way.” ~ JetsonGreen.com
