Become a Shipping Tycoon Invest in Your Own Container Fleet
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. Lease and EARN with Pacific Tycoon, and enjoy the finer things in life. Head to PacificTycoon to start your own fleet and Join the Tycoons!.
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.

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.

Luck. MAYOR KIRK CALDWELL THIS IS ABOUT HOUSING THE FOLKS IN WAIANAE IN WAIANAE IN A VERY NICE, MODULAR TYPE SETTING.

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.
