Work bumps me around from time to time.
I get stuck in an area for months and need to set up shop.
Sometimes I rent a place short term and other times I can get away with a hotel room. This most recent change with work has me in an area for a year. I thought about it and I needed something more than a rental. I don’t want to pay out the butt for it though. I found affordable home solutions in my new area quite easily. Apparently it is very popular to make a home out of shipping containers now. Shipping container homes aren’t pretty from the outside. You can paint the metal but it still looks like a shipping container. Inside it looks like a normal house. You can add carpets to the floors, stairways, windows, doors and have a fully functional bathroom and kitchen. The modular shipping container homes that I looked at were extremely reasonable in price and totally awesome on the inside. What do I care what it looks like on the outside? I immediately bought my shipping container home and I am living in it. I really like my affordable tiny home. I have just enough space to stretch out and be comfortable. I have one bathroom, a small kitchen, bedroom and living room. I also live on a nice plot of land where I can ride a bike, go for a run or hit a hiking route nearby. I think I am going to like living here.
