Kalkin's prefab homes use anywhere from one to six, or sometimes even 12 shipping containers as the frame for the home. Kalkin's homes tend to range in price from $US150-$US400 per square foot, with the cheapest container house costing $US50,000. Some are very simple, merely containing a room in in a single container, where as others have whole other structures built inside them.
But despite all the architectural eye candy, I think my favourite part of the piece was an anecdote about how Kalkin once decided to shave while delivering a lecture at the Whitney museum. But I digress. Fast Company has plenty more photos, so check them out. [Fast Company]
