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.

Inside Simon Ungers Cornell cube house OffBeat Spaces Tutorial
GIFFEN CLARK OTT My name is Giffen Clark Ott, and I'm an architecture student at Cornell University. We're in Ithaca at the Simon Ungers Cube House. Simon Ungers was a German architect who was the son of Oswald Mathias Ungers. I think this house is definitely meant for winter when it's surrounded by a blanket of snow. It's extremely evil, which knowing the state of Ungers' life in which he was in, it makes a lot of sense that he built himself a isolationist concrete box in the middle of nowhere.
I like it a lot. But that being said, it's like he's clearly not a functionalist. A cinder block house, Upstate New York, doesn't make much sense. As far as just how things freeze and thaw and crack and leak. But in the winter, it's dismal and it's beautiful. We're right now in what used to be the garage space. When I first moved in, no one had closed this window for a month and a half and it had been raining. These stairs are definitely not legal. This is Simon Ungers' signature staircase.
Meaning that this is the same staircase that he has in his winery a few miles away. This is our kitchen space. I like it a lot. Yeah, I think that everything's pretty rigid. And I kind of like the rigidity of it. I'm not a very curvy person and I like things when they're pretty well spaced. So I think that this sort of makes sense for me. Opposite the kitchen is Rachel's bedroom slash the other living space in the house. This is hers. So when Simon designed the house, he designed it as if it.
Was a New York City studio apartment. I think this space just shows me that I still don't need this much room. It's like 800 square feet, and there's two of us, and it's huge. Then this is the bedroom space. It sort of used to be an office. This is where I sleep. There are books and things. A bed frame that was cheaply made. Storage. I think builtins save a lot of space and they make a lot of sense. And you can kind of force what you want with the inhabitant.
Which is why a lot of small spaces actually use them. Yeah, I think this space is plenty flexible. This is actually a very great size bedroom, in my opinion. This is the bathroom. It's kind of standard. Fiberglass tub, sink covered in toothpaste. I'm surrounded by 150 acres. This is probably the best part of the house when it's not with the dead deer skin on it. Out here, you can kind of see what was allegedly once a runway. Where there's a sort of a subtle depression and line.

Oz Custom Home Builders of Fort Mill, SC Charlotte, NC
I'm Scott NeSmith and I own Oz Custom Built Homes. I've been licensed since 1985 and I started my company in 1997. I took me quite a few years to get the experience to build the homes that we build today. We can do all kinds of styles. We don't have set plans and that's one of the great things, I think, about Oz. That we create each plan for each family. One of the things that we're proud of doing is actually building the homearama style home without the homearama price.
What that means is you get a lot of highend features without a lot of cost. I feel one of the things that we do build is a home that stands the test of time. In not only construction and durability, but also in the architectural end of it. Most of the homes we build are timeless. When people see the Oz sign, I want them to think of quality. I want them to think, This is an awesome company. I've built a lot of homes for a lot of different people and.
