This Resourceful Woman Lives In A Shipping Container — And It’s Awesome

Your very own 360-square-foot home for a total of $4,000? Not bad, but it means living in a shipping container.
A woman in California, near broke and sick of paying rent, has inspiringly done what any sensible person in her situation would do: move into a shipping container. The woman, Lulu, said she got the container, which was used to ship items back and forth from China, for free. Then she spent less than $4,000 turning into a surprisingly nice home, all on her own. It has windows, hot water, a lofted room for her daughter, and a working kitchen. As Lulu puts it, in her home country of Argentina, many would consider the house quite nice.
In the video, she explains how she put the whole thing together. From where we’re sitting (a NYC apartment of about the same size), the setup looks pretty nice, doesn’t it?
