this is sooo cool. I have long had a dream to build an urban trailer park out of shipping containers. This chick is making things happen, things that I dig very much.
I have seen field military bases made out of these in Kosovo. There are different functional modules (dorm, single room, toilet, storage, corridor) and they out them together like a set of giant Lego bricks.
