That is cool. I have made all kinds of things out of containers. I have been sketching out a totally enclosed artificial environment system for several weeks to put inside a container. I saw a snail farm and a mushroom farm containerized by a local farmer over 15 years ago.
Neat stuff I still want to build a house out of them. Selling the wife is always the difficulty. Lol

Do you have any photos of what you have built? How did you handle eliminating the hazardous floor boards? Did you find any problem with local authorities on storing containers for fixed periods of time?

It looks like the original link I used had a few extra characters at the end which might have interfered with getting to the page.  The correct link is:

http://www.designboom.com/architecture/shipping-container-greenhous...

And that same site has another article about a similar project:

I don't have any hands-on experience with this type of design.  Maybe Rex will chime in again...?
