Home, Sweet Shipping Container, Home: SLC Builder Stacks Steel Boxes To Fill Affordable Housing Gap

“Inside will look like any apartment that you’ve ever been in,” said Rod Newman, owner of Eco Box Fabricators, the Salt Lake City-based company behind the container-turned-apartment. “We can make the exterior look like anything. It can look like stucco. It can look like brick. It can look like slat.”
