Peter DeMaria of Shipping Container Fame Interviewed

New, 14 comments

Peter DeMaria, the man behind the recent spate of shipping container construction projects in Los Angeles, speaks with Boise Thomas of G Living's Room 101. Mr. DeMaria's a busy man - mentioning one project in Venice and several others on the board, including some multi-family developments. His inspiration to build with shipping containers comes from his personal experience with the high cost of building a normal home. The shipping containers are an affordable alternative and they come from China! How exotic. The recycled containers cost anywhere between $900 and $2,500 each and can be stacked like LEGOs.
