London Approves Affordable Shipping Container Housing

This YMCA in London has began launching (approved!) affordable shipping container housing (MyPads) in London.


The shipping container micro housing units are so small that they easily fit in parking lots and campuses. And they’re stackable too.

This is already giving two people a chance to live affordably without having to stress about money so much while working and getting their education.

And the YMCA is already planning on deploying several more units as soon as possible to meet the demand of over 100 (and growing) other people in the area on a list wanting to live in one too.

According to the video you can watch below they cost just over $30k each.

    What a superb idea and just perfect for a homeless person. Safe accommodation is a priority for anyone and these homes give safety for when you are able to go look for work. I for one could easily live in one of these. At 32k they can be utilised by government or charity orgs.
