Peek Inside Phoenix's Next Affordable Housing Project, Old Shipping Containers

By: Phoenix New Times

When the cost of a single-family home hewn from wood and traditional construction materials is out of reach for many low-income Phoenix residents, and hell, some middle-income earners too — the concept of what constitutes a suitable house is likely to change.

And some residents might be more willing to live in tiny apartments under 500 square feet, even used shipping containers. 

At least that's what Mesa-based homebuilder Luke Crosthwaite, who is sitting on a sandy lot of two dozen used shipping containers is banking on will happen as Arizona residents are looking for alternatives to a crushing housing market for both home purchases and rentals alike.

The owners of Crosthwaite Custom Construction have been collecting a "monster garage" of tiny container homes in Apache Junction on the site of All-Star Storage.
