This shelter is located on Shackleford Island on the North Carolina coast. It is designed to rest on the sand dunes to prevent erosion and to allow in a lot of indirect light. It uses shipping containers as a primary building material. Shipping containers are great sources of steel, which can be reused for framing, siding, or roofing, and the plywood flooring can be refinished and used for sheathing.
