A new adventure is unfolding for my little family. We’ve decided to build a shipping container house. I’d love it if you’d like to follow along on our journey at cargolife.net.
Where we live is a deep reflection of who we are–or at least it should be. I think it’s easy to get caught up in what we are “supposed” to do in regard to housing. Everyone else has a thirty year mortgage; isn’t that normal? Perhaps a fifteen year note is acceptable if your finances are a bit more in order, but regardless, a mortgage is simply what’s done.
My spouse and I have found that this is not appropriate for us. We prefer to have as few monthly bills as possible, and with that in mind, we’ve decided to build in a way that’s still somewhat counter to the normal culture. You can hear all about this, our financial reasons for doing it, and more at our new blog-space. We hope to see you over there.
