Gallery: The Beach Box is the First Hamptons Home Built With Recycled S...

    If I had over $1mil to spend on a shipping containers in the Hamptons I think I’d make a better effort… The price tag is most probably the plot of land? It’s pretty unimaginative… I would wager it was designed in Sketchup, where are the curves dude? (don’t use the term “sympathetic”) On the upside it looks very well made, almost 100% true to the stark renders presented to the construction company… Sorry if you think this post is a bit harsh but green credentials doesn’t mean it’s pleasing on the eye.

    I love this but I would imagine that it is out of reach financially for the ordinary working person
