This platinum LEED certified home in Gainesville, made from used shipping containers, is near the downtown. Tom Fox built his home from 12 containers he brought from Jacksonville. He said his goal was to have a home that was affordable, able to withstand natural disasters and green. AND, he is selling excess electricity generated by solar back to the grid.
Can one imagine zoning approvals for a home like this in Tallahassee?
