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.
