When single mom Lulu needed to find a new place to live, she decided to get creative. She didn’t have very much money to spend and she wanted to use what money she did have to fund her education.
Lulu found a shipping container that had been used to transport items back and forth between China and the United States. The container was free and Lulu decided that even though she had very limited construction experience – all she had done before was remodel a boat – she would try her hand at transforming the tiny space into a home for her and her daughter.
From the outside, it doesn’t look like much; but even though the interior is tiny – only 160 square feet – Lulu has transformed the space into a home.
“When you don’t have money you just get creative,” she said. She found items like windows and flooring and dressers at the junkyard and used them to create a little bohemian haven.
