Hugg & Hall mobile storage are join the shipping container movement, building a new facility for their business almost entirely out of the steel boxes.
Two container homes at 21st Street and Commerce in the Pettaway neighborhood downtown are thought to be the first two containers adapted for living space in Little Rock. (If anybody knows of others, would love to know about it.) Each of those homes use four containers to make 1,300 square feet of living space. The Hugg and Hall building will include a 3,200-square-foot-office building and a 5,000-square-foot workshop.
The availability of the containers stems from the fact that the U.S. imports more than it exports, I'm told, and the containers sit empty at the ports. That they're being recycled as permanent structures is a green idea. They look good, too.
