Contain your excitement! Shipping container houses to HoustonContain your excitement! Shipping container houses to Houstonhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=139142016-07-21T05:00:00Z2016-07-21T18:00:00Z

​HOUSTON - A collection of homes made almost entirely out of portable containers​ is about to take shape in Houston's Fifth Ward.

Houston native Jerry Hartless, owner of Houston-based contracting company Build-A-Box, says he will build a 42-unit residential complex in the Denver Harbor area. 

One completed Build-a-Box house currently on the market—at 1709 Dan St.—offers a glimpse of what he's planning to create on a much larger scale. 

The two-bedroom, 1,228-sf house, which sits on 3,000 sf of land, is currently listed at $189,995. Hartless says the houses could cost anywhere between $80 and $120 per-sf, depending on how the outside will be outfitted.

The structure will be comprised of a series of uniformly renovated shipping containers stacked to look like duplexes. Each of the 42 apartments will average 960 sf, putting the entire building at around 40,000 sf.
