Shipping Container Home Coming to Redondo Beach
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.
Bolivian Recycled Homes Made of Litter
Now in bolivia aren't they are dealing with extreme poverty fifty percent of the population is living in extreme poverty especially in rural areas and one woman by the name of the in gridlock ideas decided to take some of that winner in that she sees happening in her our country and music toward in positive ball and what she's doing is she's taking plastic bottles she's filling them with derek's and then watchers she does erickson was it was a house that's a house that she built from plastic bottles.

Temporary housing planned for homeless in Waianae
Point3 million dollar plan to house some of the homeless living on the Leeward Coast is starting to take shape. A news conference is planned tomorrow, but. KITV4's Andrew Pereira has the details tonight. Andrew Yunji, the city is using shipping containers to build temporary housing at Sand Island. But this proposed facility will use modular construction. It's just off Farrington Highway next to Maluhia Lutheran Church. This one acre lot in Waianae is not much to look at right now, but holds a lot of promise for those down on their.
Luck. MAYOR KIRK CALDWELL THIS IS ABOUT HOUSING THE FOLKS IN WAIANAE IN WAIANAE IN A VERY NICE, MODULAR TYPE SETTING. Plans call for modular housing that can be split into 16 to 20 units complete with kitchens and bathrooms, so not much construction is involved. SANDRA PFUND WE'RE TRYING TO GET THIS TECHNOLOGY DOWN. WE'RE DOING SOME THAT ARE DIFFERENT IN SAND ISLAND FOR CONTAINERS, BUT WE CAN ALSO TRY THE MODULAR APPROACH, WHICH IS PREFABRICATED UNITS THAT WE CAN PUT UP QUICKLY. The facility will also feature parking, a common.
Area for residents and a community garden. The new facility could house as many as 90 people. SANDRA PFUND WE'RE LOOKING AT THIS AS A STEP UP FROM A TRANSITIONAL SHELTER, WE WANT TO SEE WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP TO BECOME A LITTLE BIT MORE PERMANENT FOR FAMILIES TO GET STABLE BEYOND THE SHELTERTYPE OPERATION. ANDREW PEREIRA YEAH THAT'S RIGHT, UNLIKE THE TEMPORARY HOUSING GOING UP AT SAND ISLAND, THIS FUTURE FACILITY WILL ACCEPT FAMILIES. MAYOR KIRK CALDWELL THERE'S NOT ENOUGH SITES FOR FAMILIES AND AS WE DO OUR ENFORCEMENT.
ACTIONS, WE DO NOT WANT TO ENFORCE AREAS WHERE FAMILIES ARE THAT DON'T HAVE A PLACE TO GO. AND THIS IS ABOUT HELPING FAMILIES GET A PLACE TO GO. The city hopes to acquire the 1.1 acre parcel for $300,000. The modular units and program office are expected to cost $2 million. The city wants the eventual operator to have close ties to the Leeward Coast, and will soon present the plans to the Nanakuli and Waianae neighborhood boards. MAYOR KIRK CALDWELL WE'RE WORKING VERY CLOSELY WITH THIS COMMUNITY, WE UNDERSTAND IT'S A.
Vancouver receives help for affordable housing from CMHC
Atira Women's resource society has been providing housing to women fleeing violence for almost 30 years. There's actually 2 components to this project. One is the original building, which has been here since 1912. In that building we're housing young women who have been homeless, there are 18 rooms and it's communal living. The second part of the project is the recycled shipping container component. There are 12 selfcontained studio units here. The units are affordable, the rent is affordable, it's safe. Women are not only being able to interact with each other.

Unpacking shipping containers
In the last five years, we have investigated 21 incidents in New South Wales involving workers unpacking shipping containers. Three of these workers were killed. The most serious incidents involved unpacking sheet material such as glass, stone, sandwich panel and timber. If freight isn't packed with safe unloading in mind or if it becomes unstable during transit, workers unpacking it can be at risk of serious injury or death. If you unpack shipping containers, keep your people safe. Work with suppliers to ensure the load is appropriately packed for safe transit and unpacking.
Ask them to use racks or crates and to secure freight with wrapping or strapping. You can also ask suppliers to use containers that are open at both ends or have an open top for safer access. Plan before you unpack the container, and consider what equipment you will need. Choose an area with flat ground and unpack at ground level where possible. Be careful when opening the container in case the load has shifted. Keep looking for risks as you unpack and adjust your plan as conditions change. Instruct workers about safety procedures.
And make sure they are appropriately experienced and supervised. Use a crane or a forklift with attachments such as grabs, spikes or slippers to avoid manual unloading. Never allow people in or around the container while using machinery to unload. If you're using a crane and it's necessary to guide the load, make sure it's from a safe distance using a tagline. Never allow workers inside the container if there's any risk of objects moving and trapping them. Where there is a risk, brace freight with suitably rated restraint devices such as props, braces or frames.
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.
