The construction of apartment complexes using shipping containers has been going on for a very long time. In fact, it was the military that created the container home, office, mobility concept.

I have been around the world and have seen some spectactular complexes built using shipping containers. New York City, Shanghai China, Amsterdam, Germany, Switzerland, Peru, Costa Rica, Mexico. I have visited most all of these structures but the following photos are not 100% mine. Click here to see more.
