Shipping Containers for Everything

Shipping containers, also known as intermodal transportation — because they move from ship to train to truck so readily — are emerging as a de facto standard for a lot of things. (So much so that when attempts are made to innovate in the area of shipping, you pretty have a pretty tall hurdle to jump to convince shippers to break from the standard shipping container.) Will they one day be a standard way to build a house? There’s a lot of videos on Youtube that seems to think so. Here’s one that shows a European office being built out of a container.
