I saw this on HGTV one night and KNEW this was the one for me!
Well six months later I finally found the owner, Adam, and we have been talking for the past three hours about what his vision is and how it merged with mine!
We both see this cool and safe container home he designs as the ones to use to create an ECO-VILLAGE that would also use Bioponica for food production and the Crank-A-Watt for off-the-grid power! His unit should be able to withstand up to 200 mph!
Adam would relocate to Saint Croix to start offering numerous configurations of this unit. It could be four connected together. It could be two on top of each other. These could be outfitted with teak floors, cabinets, etc.
As you will note the side drops down to offer a spacious deck.
As a Preparedness and Survival consultant I like that it can be TOTALLY closed up as you see above. One could ride out a hurricane like Harvey very safely in this especially if it was situated on a high mountain side like we would have for the eco-village in Saint Croix.
Stay tuned for further developments!
