The discovery he made was " weeHomes" a part of a larger company called Alchemy Architects. Founder Geoffrey Werner wanted to build something using sustainable practices, recycling and re-using and reducing waste during the building process. he works in close contact with clients, builders and other architects to create an interesting, eco friendly container home. They start at around $79,000 for a single container and moving up from there with multi-level homes. you choose the size of container and the interior plan and the materials to be used like bamboo and reclaimed wood. Then the home is brought to you on the land you have chosen and purchased. There are even some of these unusual homes available for private short term rental to "test drive" life in a container!
