GAINSVILLE, Florida (WTLV) -- Shipping containers are extremely durable designed to withstand high winds, salt water and hold 60,000 lbs. so why not stack them and turn them into a house?

That's just what a Gainesville, Florida man did and when you take a tour of his house, you may be surprised at all that it offers.

"I wanted to have a house that was affordable, that was safe but that could handle any natural disaster and then I wanted a green house. And this fits all three of those," said Tom Fox, who lives inside 12 upcycled shipping containers that were just sitting in a shipping yard in Jacksonville.
