Just got a press release on a new home built of cargo containers that is being craned into place today. The home, called "cargotecture c680," is on Whidbey Island.
The 680-square-foot project is made of four cargo containers and is multi-stories. It is expected to be complete and holding tours in February. It will have a living space, large view deck, green roof,HyBrid Architecture.
This is the second house in a month the firm has been involved in that's been craned into place. The other, a home for Rob Humble of Hybrid, was developed by GreenFab and craned into place last week. However that project was built of modules, not cargo containers. To read that story, click here.
The press release says that the house is located on a beach that looks over container ships passing throuhg. "The containers HyBrid used for the project were almost certainly on those ships at some point in the past decade," the release says. Isn't that poetic?
