This is a fun article on shipping container styled tiny homes. Those large reinforced storage containers that are most seen on cargo ships or moving along at 40 mph on the railway, are being recycled as easy homes for low income people. For a standard size shipping container all you need is three rooms, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen with the leftover space used for seating. The plumbing and electric for the unit meet all the requirements for standard ordinance, but make sure you  double check your city’s building ordinance. To keep the heat down, ceramic paint will help reflect most of the warmth beating down during the summer. The insulation will help with air control through out the year and you can get the space saving style. Shipping container homes of every style are being built all over the world.
