There's something so rustic, so American about this project. Two brothers. A long history living on the land of your youth.
Paul Stankey, co-founder of Hive Modular, with his wife, his brother, and his brother's wife, have set about an interesting journey to build a cabin on the family land in the hills north of Twin Cities. They purchased two, twenty foot, used containers for $800 each and labored to transport them to the property.
After getting the containers in place, progress has continued, piece-by-piece. In the end, the cabin home will have a kitchen, dining room, living room, wash and clothes area, and two queen beds.
The home will be powered, at least in partial, by a small solar array. Also, the downspout will be will be hooked up to a cistern to collect rainwater. We'll keep watching as the final details fall into place. In the mean time, check out the Hive Blog.
