There are many companies doing good and interesting work in field related to the ecobox. While using containers for building is not a new idea, a few companies have done work that we admire, and from whom we hope to learn. Before you ask, "so what's new about this project" note that none of these that we've been able to find are self-contained. They all require standard hookups (water, electric, sewage, etc...).
We've collected hundreds of similar resources, ranging from tutorials on rainwater cachement systems to videos of container welding. If you are aware of things we need to know about, please send a link to firstname.lastname@example.org
