This hip community offers a green gathering place for its inhabitants and neighbors.

 So why containers? According to the MSN Real Estate article "Shipping containers provide home in a box," using recycled shipping containers is not only green, but also affordable, with the 40-foot-long, 8-foot-wide containers typically costing between $1,000 and $2,500.

 Additionally, because the basic structure already is there, architects say using containers can cut down on building costs by 20%
