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.
