Maine couple living in two 20' shipping containers
« on: June 21, 2011, 02:50 AM NHFT »

We've talked about shipping containers before. Here's a couple in Maine living in two 20' units. They're planning to build a house on the site eventually.

I think it probably means "more conventional-looking". You know how reporters want to characterize everything, usually inaccurately.

People exploring such unconventional and practical housing seldom wind up building a truly "conventional" home.
