Default An oddball way to solve people's space problems

Here's an interesting idea...

Many people are now working from home... And more want to keep working from home. (Think of all the commuting time saved!)

There's also more homeschooling happening, too...

And they're exercising more at home too (rather than at the gym)...

That means, people need more space at home than before!

For office space, school study space, space to exercise...

One company is helping to solve the problem...

... By using old shipping containers...

They take an old shipping container, and turn it into an extra room people can put in their back yard.

(Everywhere has different building rules, so whether this is allowed in your neck of the woods depends on your local building codes... I've looked into this kind of thing before, and where I live, whether you can do it without a building permit will depend on the size of the new "room"... but every place has different local rules...)

Interesting business, which has grown due to current conditions...!

Here's the article...

New company transforms shipping containers to home offices

Best wishes,
