Here in Los Angeles housing is expensive but there's an alternative which could save about thirty percent on construction cost shipping container homes CBS News Tuesday market shows us more as the cost of living rises the way we live is changing people are living in modular homes prefab homes and even shipping container homes. containers get all the headlines countless shipping containers come into the ports of LA and Long Beach and many of them stay but some are being repurposed into everything from retail spaces to homes when Paula approached me about a shipping container home I thought this is insane.
And then I met Peter and I still thought it was insane. Matt and Paula dowd are using shipping containers to build two shipping container homes in Redondo Beach one for them and one for Grandma. I can age in place and my grandchildren will grow up here and I'll be with my daughter and my son inlaw. they're building with architect Peter DeMaria but it's an idea that still stirs controversy. In this area you mostly find Mediterranean or craftsman style homes and you bring something like this to the city and.
They're like, yeah I don't know it took several trips to the City Council to get their property approved with multiple modifications to the design and Matt had the same concerns as the city. my opinion was oh my gosh it's going to be boxy and corrugated but many homes built from shipping containers look like this and this all of these homes were designed by the architect very few people be able to tell wow that's a shipping container home. containers are the thing that really breaks down the door and people say.
Maybe I can do the little bit differently and I'm not going to sacrifice quality and I'm not going to sacrifice on the size of the house and all of it translates into doing it less expensively. most containers can be covered with any surface like wood stucco or vinyl siding and it's affordable while maintaining quality in general they're around 30 percent less than traditional construction a great value but the quality of construction is a heavy gauge steel that that blows away wood frame house a comforting thought in quakeprone.
Southern California and by upcycling metal containers it's one of the greenest options available so the containers become a means to an end we're changing the way we think about building and we're saving the planet. we're taking material and upcycling it as opposed to cutting down five or six acres of forest every time we put up a new wood frame house. DeMaria says there's a revolution to change how we live and the Dowd's are early adopters and I think this is how a great progress is made really this.

Shipping Container Explodes, Killing Firefighter
About an hour after a fire department began fighting a blaze, this shipping container, exposed to the extreme heat of the burning building, exploded. Tragically, a firefighter was killed. This is what happened. By the time firefighters arrived at this log home construction business, flames had engulfed the main production building. Next to the building was a shipping container in which 16 gaspowered chainsaws, a gaspowered pressure washer, and other tools were kept. Nothing considered explosive, such as jerry cans of fuel or propane tanks, was inside. Knowing that the container was vented and that there were no bulk quantities of fuel,.
The incident commander didn't consider the container a threat. This opinion was shared by several other firefighters and a company director on site. The information was conveyed to the rest of the firefighters. The company director asked the firefighters to do what they could to save the tools. Over the next hour water was directed almost continuously at or near the container. One of the firefighters sprayed the container from a ladder. He noted that there was no steam coming off the container, only limited scorching of the wooden structure around it,.
And that when touched with his wet glove the container didn't feel hot. Some of the roof trusses on the main building were collapsing, so the firefighters pulled back. Shortly after, with nothing further falling, a fire captain and a firefighter moved towards the building, spraying flareups near the shipping container. During the fire, heat had built up inside the container, with some areas reaching at least 200 degrees Celsius. The gas tanks of two chainsaws and a plastic bottle containing about a litre of methanol melted. Gasoline vapour also escaped from the tanks of the other equipment.
Denser than air, the vapours settled along the bottom, too far from the small vents of the container to be dissipated. Without warning, the container exploded. The fire captain, struck by a door, would not survive his injuries. The firefighter was not injured. For weather resistance, shipping containers are designed to be sealed, with only small vents providing limited ventilation. This design traps heat and, in this case, flammable vapours. Being so close to a burning building elevated the temperature to the point that it would only take about 3 litres of gasoline to form enough vapour inside the container to be explosive.
