Williamsburg Apartment Made Of Shipping Containers

You may recall pioneering couple David Boyle and Michele Bertomen, who popped up on our radar after they converted a small plot of land at 351 Keap Street in Williamsburg into a house…made of five shipping containers.

Their adventures building a 1,600-square-foot architectural anomaly has inspired others to embrace the boxed life. The cute couple has opened up about the difficulties of building their home (banks wouldn’t give them a loan).

Take a look inside their house in the video below—and lest you think living in shipping containers is weird, they’ll get the last laugh next time there is an earthquake.
