Louisvilles first shipping container homes planned for Germantown
ARE GOING TO BE MADE OUT OF THESE SHIPPI CONTAINERS. RIGHT NOW, THESE FIVE LOTS AT THE CORNER OF SOUTH SHEL STREET AND ASH STREET ARE EMPTY, BUT THIS IS WHAT THE DEVELOPERS ENVISION.
EIGHT TO NINE CONTAINER HOME 640 SQUARE FEET EACH, WITH ROOFTOP DECKS. gt;gt; THE PLAN ORIGINATED, WE ACTUALLY SAW A CONTAINER BAR IN AUSTIN, TEXAS. CHRISTINA RICK KUEBER BOUGHT THE LAND AND WANTS TO BE PART OF.
GERMANTOWN’S FUTURE. FROM A DESIGN STANDPOINT, WE ARE ON THE CORNER, SO WE HAVE DIVIDEND OF BOTH STREETS. WE HAVE TO FIT INTO BOTH STREETS. CHRISTINA: IT WOULD BE A FIRST FOR THE CITY OF LOUISVILLE.
TAKING SHIPPING CONTAINERS AND TURNING THEM INTO HOME SWEET HOME. gt;gt; A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT TO PUT THEM IN THE TINY CATEGORY. I WOULD NOT SAY THEY ARE THAT SMALL, BUT IT IS CERTAINLY PART OF THE MINIMALIST MOVEMENT.
CHRISTINA: THE POTENTIAL DEVELOPMENT IS RIGHT BEHIND GERMANTOWN MILL LOFTS AND PART OF THE SCHNITZELBURG COMMUNITY. FOR EACH HOME, BUILDERS WOULD USE SHIPPING CONTAINERS THAT ARE EIGHT FEET BY 20 FEET AND PU THEM SIDE BY SIDE, AND THEN ADD.
ON ANOTHER FLOOR. KUEBER AND ARCHITECT MARK FOXWORTH SAY THE PLAN WI ATTRACT MORE YOUNG PROFESSIONALS TO THE AREA. BUT IT ISN’T WITHOUT CHALLENGES, gt;gt; I THINK IT’S VERY SMALL.
IT’S ALMOST LIKE DESIGNING A PIECE OF FURNITURE IT GETS REALLY FOCUSED TIGHT. CHRISTINA: SO IF YOU COULD IMAGINE LIVING IN ONE OF THESE, DEVELOPERS HOPE TO BE READY TO.

In 1913 Aristotle Onassis was importing tobacco into Argentina from Turkey. By the age of 25 he was a millionaire, but soon realized that the shipping companies were making more money shipping his tobacco then he was selling it. So in 1930, Onassis purchased his first ship, and started on his way to becoming the richest man in the world. In the 1950s Onassis built the world’s first supertanker. By shipping oil from Saudi Arabia to Europe and America at half the cost, he became the RICHEST man in the world. In 1956, Malcolm MacLean invented the shipping container which revolutionized transport and world trade. The container opened the door to the huge profits of the shipping business, to the private investor.
Today the low cost of a shipping container has opened up this massive market to anyone who has 4,100 USD to buy a container. Private investors around the world, who own containers receive passive or unearned income by owning and leasing containers to Pacific Tycoon.
