Have you ever heard of the term up-cycling? Up-cycling means that you give goods that otherwise would be destroyed or thrown away a new functional purpose. You are not going to believe what this family from Denver decided to do for their own up-cycling project.
I have heard of people reusing a lot of stuff in and around their house, but to reuse goods in order to build your own house I have never heard of before. They decided to build a house out of old sea containers.
The good thing about the reuse of sea containers is that originally they were already built for all weather conditions and therefore offer an excellent base for a new house.
