Raining and dreaming

A few days ago the city has experienced rainshowers that looked like it would never end.

A few hours of rain and Phnom Penh is transformed into a waterworld.

Just a few hours of rain in my neighbourhood and it’s already water world. You don’t believe me, just take a look at the photo on the right. To be honest, I don’t mind the rain as it brings a much cooler temperature. BUT too much rain — nononono! I got to find something to do – with the husband around, well, we managed, at least.

You see, we have long been dreaming about our – well – dream house in the countryside. Nothing fancy, just a small house with a space for our dogs to run around and, of course, a garden to grow our food. Anyways, one rainy afternoon, we started looking at tiny house listings and we sort of gotten a common idea of what our dream house would be. Have you heard about container homes? I first heard about it from my husband and I thought he’s just being weird. I mean, can the very containers that are used to transport huge loads of goods via sea or land transport for international container shipping be transformed into a house? Well, my dear friends, with a little imagination and creativity, beautiful container houses can be created from these corrugated boxes. There are so many amazing shipping container house ideas and designs around the world (and on the internet, if you want to go have a look) and more and more people are opting for this. Not only that it is economical and earth-friendly!

What do you think? Would you live in a shipping container?
