15. That's an excellent idea and would work for shipping containers.

I'd like to see the other kinds of prefab utilized, but those likely would require a change to the local laws and codes. In Houston, we don't have zoning (I know, hard to believe for some, but I like it) but we do have powerful developers and building contractors with money to burn, especially on preventing the likes of prefab. I don't think prefab is anywhere near as popular as it could be, but when it does gain in popularity, that alone would get things moving to change the codes.

In the meantime, I hope other communities that understand how to think outside the bureaucratic box try ideas along the lines you suggest and the rest of us can finally follow (not so long) later

Thanks for the thread and spreading the word about prefab
