20-Foot Shipping Container Floor Plan Brainstorm
This is just a little design exploration for how one might finish out a shipping container as a home. Some of the issues I’m noodling-through are:
- Should a side door be cut into the container and how does that make the floor plan more flexible?
- Should the bathroom be placed at one end or in the middle?
- Should custom built-in beds be fabricated or can standard beds and bunk beds be used just as efficiently?
- How many beds can be placed inside a 20-foot shipping container and still have space for a micro kitchen and bathroom?
Not sure where this design exploration is going yet, but I’m having fun thinking about what can fit inside the box.
Put This On’s Summer of White Tees 2014
Since the first thaw, people have been emailing me about whether our annual group buy of Alternative Apparel t-shirts would return. Good news: it has!
Here’s the deal: AA’s t-shirts are among my favorites, but they’re a bit pricey at $24 each. Luckily, I have a wholesale account with Alternative (I use it to buy blank shirts for my podcast network), so once a year I make a huge group buy of t-shirts.
You pay $9.90 each, plus a flat $6 shipping charge per style, and we send you as many shirts as you want.
This year, we’re offering both white and heather grey, in both crew and v-necks. We ship only to the US (sorry). Here’s a size chart if you need it. These shirts are very soft and lighter weight - perfect for undershirts and warm weather, but less so for folks looking for something super-stout.
Again, it’s a group buy: we’ll take orders until Thursday the 3rd, then place our order with Alternative. That’ll go to our fulfillment center, and go out to you from there. The whole process takes roughly six weeks, and we don’t accept any returns. Too special of a deal.
“Student loans are destroying the imagination of youth. If there’s a way of a society committing mass suicide, what better way than to take all the youngest, most energetic, creative, joyous people in your society and saddle them with, like $50,000 of debt so they have to be slaves? There goes your music. There goes your culture. There goes everything new that would pop out. And in a way, this is what’s happened to our society. We’re a society that has lost any ability to incorporate the interesting, creative and eccentric people.” ~David Graeber
