What’s In The Box?

guest blog by Nila Ridings 
Options for living in anything outside of an HOA always catch my eye!  This one is built to withstand a hurricane, can be made livable in one day, has a reduced carbon footprint, and a price tag affordable on a fast food income.
These Canadians are coming across the border with a new version of a concept that has been around for a few years.  This time with a basement option.
Looks like they truly have learned to think outside the box while making the inside quite attractive!
Just for fun, I’m wondering how would an HOA foreclose on a shipping container when it could disappear with a quick lift on the cable of a crane overnight?  That would give board members something new to sue over!

    You just answered your own question.

    The HOA will then bill the home owner for the cost of the crane.

    Actually, if the HOA removed the container with a crane that would be theft. The question had a dual interpretation, didn’t it? Not intended that way but I see your point.

    That would be similar to the recent story from Florida where the HOA stole the trash containers and the President is now being faced with charges for theft.

    If the homeowner removes their container with a crane the HOA would have nothing to bill for, correct?
