It looks like shipping container homes aren't just a trend. They're reportedly being used to solve housing problems.
According to the Daily Mail, Forest YMCA's mYPads are shipping containers that will be used as studio apartments in London. They've been designed with televisions, bathrooms and air conditioning. In an interview with the BBC, Tim Pain from Forest YMCA says these residences are primarily for struggling adults, who even with full time jobs, can't seem to find housing.
They cost about $31,884 to set up, but those who live there will pay around $119 per month. The FYMCA was given the green light on the project for two site: Coopers Lane in Leyton and FYMCA's Forest Road headquarters.
