Living in a box

Marc | 17:33 UK time, Wednesday, 17 October 2007

My unhealthy interest in shipping containers (thanks, Rupert) has led me here and iPM should be hearing from one man who's making a living from turning the containers into housing and more.

You can find out where else in the world it's happening here and here as well

Here's how Tower Hamlet council is using shipping containers:


They've been turned into offices at a leisure centre in Mile End in east London.

We'd also like to know if you've seen any containers turned into something else - a shop, a home, a school? You can send your photos to ipm@bbc.co.uk
