Shipping Container Villages and More Dreams of Architect, Travis Price

March 18, 2015 - Michelle Goldchain

Travis Price has a dream, a dream that anyone can move from city to city and still live in the same home. In his words:
I have these visions of building steel frames around the country, with jack-pump elevators plugging and unplugging shipping containers. Say you want to move from Chicago to Atlanta — I unplug my entire house, it goes down the elevator, onto a track and three months later I'm living in the same house.
