    Red Neck Condos. DUHH!
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    Hey, at least they used handrails on the stairs.

    I noticed a couple of cargo container boxes in the stack. I've seen pics of some low-cost modular housing made from cargo containers. Here are a few:

    Hey, we are Agricultural American's not Rednecks gosh darn it.

    Nice execution of space....almost better then some of the stuff I have seen on Trading Spaces. I must admit one day I did see an episode where they took feathers and glued them to one wall, and then glued cardboard to another. I was amazed they even had the episode on TV...can anyone say FIRE DANGER!

    The sad thing is, there is no building codes against stacking trailers like that where I live. You don't even have to be licensed to be a contractor here. Its downright crazy. My Massage Therapist has to be licensed, and all she does is rub my back every three weeks. The guy building my house...naaaa, he doesn't need any license of training or anything, he just needs a hammer!!
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    I suppose having a trucking background, I'm biased, but that Link is a pretty clever use of containers, considering just how many of them are available. I'm certain they never built more than a couple of them, due to the 'stigma' attatched to them. I wonder if that venture for affordable housing ever got off the ground.

    I'd love to have a couple of cargo containers for storage sheds. They could be disguised to look nice, IMO. LOML would never go for it though, at least not at this house.

    Back when I was playing in a high school rock band, we rented a railroad boxcar as a rehearsal place. There was a self-storage place in town that had several rows of boxcars that they rented out as storage units. A number of up and coming bands rented spaces there, and "The Boxcars" was a happening place for people to hang out and do what teenagers do on a Friday night.
