Home life in a box


Shipping containers are being recycled into homes in South Florida.  With their iron walls and boxy shapes, these mods are being repurposed as duplexes, Airbnb rentals and homes.

I wrote a story about these modular homes which have been popping up in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach county.

The white home on the upper left was made from three shipping containers (one on top, two  at the bottom.)  It's used as an Airbnb rental in Jupiter (just north of West Palm Beach.)  The dog in the photo is not included with the rental.

The second photo is of a duplex currently being built near North Miami Beach.

And the third photo is of a home by Miami Shores built from three containers.
