Almost wow... I can hear it now. "Little Johnny, stop running around like a maniac!"

It looks to be built up on shipping containers. Get in on this amazing Bear-Stearns investment opportunity NOW!

This is actually a theater complex somewhere overseas (Amsterdam?). What fun!

Wow - this gives 'split level dwelling' a whole new meaning.

I recieved that same picture in an email the other day. They are on top of Sealands/shipping containers. What gets me is that some of the containers are up-ended, how safe could that be and what Inspector gave them the ok?

I did not even notice the shipping containers. I had to look at the picture a second time. If they are anchored to the ground I think it is quite innovative. Shipping containers are becoming a real issue around the world and I have seen some pretty cool homes built from them.

This was the backdrop for a play in 2005, so it did not have to be permanently built nor house people. That probably helped.

It was indeed used in 2005. That pic has been widely distributed as "Redneck Mansion". However, here is a wider pic that shows how it really was used:

Indeed. I own two shipping containers. I use one as a workshop, and the other as storage. They're reasonably priced, transportable, and virtually indestructable. I'm thinking about getting another one, and stacking it.

Near most seaports that have container traffic, you can pick up a "slightly used" 20' container guaranteed to be "dry" for around $600. They are stronger than you think, as they are designed to be stacked over 10 high on board a ship, and subjected to some pretty intense buffing forces from pitching and yawing. If each one weighs 20,000 pounds, that means the bottom one has to be able to support 200,000 pounds. That's a conservative figure, as the container itself usually weighs in at around 8,000 pounds MT.

I wonder what play they did there? I would have loved to seen the production!
