Another interesting container gardening idea is the recycled football hanging basket. Not only does it give you a waterproof container to stop things dripping on your table but could easily be used for scented herbs or flowers to add an aroma to the room to freshen the place up. You can learn how to build this one over at instructables
City Mall in Christchurch, New Zealand has come up with a quick construction project after New Zealand’s earthquakes earlier this year. This pretty much put the central area of the city off limits except for demolition work. The shipping containers have been converted into two clusters of 25 shops with 2 cafe’s hoping to get the city centre back to life and the centre of the community. Maybe a thing we are going to see more and more with the reduced costs of construction of shipping container buildings as well as the earthquake resistant designs.
