Amazon selling container home..

These look like they would make a great hunting camp, weekend retreats, or rally point..

We have talked, in the past, about using containers for housing, now you can buy one from Amazon..

Amazon officially sells everything, including a $36K shipping container house
by Megan Barber@megcbarber Oct 5, 2017, 4:48pm EDT

From Amazon’s potential new headquarters to it’s latest lineup of smart home devices, the roughly $430 billion company is in the headlines and in our households. The Seattle e-commerce company sells almost everything—including, it seems, a shipping container house.

In an effort to recycle the thousands of surplus containers that sit on docks around the world, shipping containers have been used in urban farms, off-the-grid getaways, and even as all-in-one pools. A fleet of new companies also use the 20- or 40-foot containers to create prefab tiny homes, all available to order and delivered to your location.

Now, Wisconsin-based MODs International is selling their version on Amazon. The 320-square-foot house uses a new sea container as the structural shell—not a recycled one—and includes a rather plain bedroom, shower, toilet, sink, small kitchenette, appliances, and living area. Large double doors open to the outside, and extra windows were added to increase light.

The price for the home of your shipping container dreams on Amazon: $36,000. Of course, the unit isn’t sold from Amazon itself and is available from MODS as a third party seller under the “See all Buying Options” tab. It also costs $4,500 to ship the 7,500 pound structure to your location, so don’t expect your normal Prime discount.

Might be some vets behind that project? They seem to be one of the largest groups to have lived in Conexes.

Not sure how many are familiar with the houses Sears Roebuck used to sell out of their catalogs, I see quite a few in this area, they were built to last.

That'd be a fun place in a hail storm.

I've a 16' Conex I use for my Hot Rod garage....new, unused....they are the heat.

Just be aware that the marine grade flooring is permeated (soaked) with pesticide and must be removed or sealed if you are going to live there.

This is sop for any conex due to the world wide shipping etc.

I'm sure this is dealt with by any company building a home out of them...just good to know for any do it yourselfer.
