    I don’t think it’s a blight, it has more style, is better built, and will outlast the homes most of America lives in.
    It is green as those containers were ready made and taken from a junk pile and cost nothing to reuse, nor were any forests cleared for the lumber it would have taken. It’s also green in that it’s smaller than most American homes, thus more efficient to heat and cool.
    I would be proud to own such as she built. I would imagine that container home will outlast most of what nature could throw at it as well.
    Do not judge a persons home home, it makes you expose your own idiocy and poor judgement.

    That poor beach. How is this green? Or responsible? She placed a blight into unspoiled land and should be lambasted for it.
