Veterans Green Village Shipping Container Home Design #1.
Simple design the can scale in size and combined with other units while retaining the same design features by using different container lengths adding levels and green house dimensions.
By wrapping the exterior shipping containers walls and sub-flooring with hempcrete up to two feet in depth would increase thermal efficiency as well as fire protection and assist with flood mitigation.
Next generation will be to create designs to fit standard lots at mobile home parks.
