    I’ve wondered about how easy it is to control the climate in shipping container homes, so this article encouraged me to do some research. Here’s one interesting anti-shipping container article that mentions climate control and much more: http://www.treehugger.com/sustainable-product-design/whats-wrong-shipping-container-housing-one-architect-says-everything.html

    With a kitchen and washing machine, one can assume there is running water. The article does not mention a bathroom, which would raise it above substandard. Some shipping containers used to house the homeless neglect to take into account that they have bodily functions as well. The square footage is more than adequate for one person, and adequate for two and some familial units of three or four. A psychological downside is a lack of Windows and natural lighting.
