i have to admit, shipping containers have always had a kind of appeal for me. maybe it’s because they remind me of my childhood: pressing my nose against the grimy window of our minivan as we cruised down the jersey turnpike, staring at the stacks of colorful boxes, giant metal legos looming skyward. but while i can somehow appreciate their aesthetic, i’m not sure i would be prepared to make one of them my home, the way roger black has done on his 3,000 acre west texas ranch.
i adore the look of life on the outside. but entering within?
i am fairly certain that i would lose it, somewhere between the table and couch. it’s not that i don’t like small spaces, but somehow this space just feels like it would have me spinning. and not in a dancing sort of way.
oh, but the view? yes. i’ll take the view.
what do you think? would you go for life in a shipping container?
