Not too shabby for something that was slapped together and outfitted in TWO DAYS! This was the (somewhat recent) finale competition on the program Design Star All Stars, and while I didn't see a single other episode of the show (I don't have cable tv), and hear that the overall track record of the show's winner was better, I still think, as far as this last contest went, contestant Hilari Younger got robbed. I dug this entry over the others by far- in its use of a VERY limited space (7' by 20' on the interior), and the bold use of color and accessories/furnishings it employed. Nothing I would personally choose to live in, style wise, but its just fun and ballsy at the same time.

 Here are FIVE books dealing with shipping container architecture and pre-fabricated and eco-housing....some deal with tiny, and/or small/modest sized houses too....just some books/links to peruse...
