This Woman Transformed A Shipping Container Into Her Haven

Mom Converts The Shipping Container Into A Home For Her Daughter 


Lulu is a girl from Argentina who lives in the United States with her young daughter. The mom was not interested in a traditional 9-5 job or some lifestyle that requires paying rent which would require a constant job to be done. 


When Lulu had to move out of her house, she decided to move with her daughter into a shipping container. The container was earlier used for bringing things back and forth from China, now turned Lulu’s haven. 



This was what Lulu did


The place had to be converted into a home. So Lulu despite any building experience decided to renovate it. She spent one month and $4000 in insulation, installing windows and a functioning kitchen. 


Lulu believes that when you don’t have money, you shall make yourself creative and that’s how she transformed the old shipping container into a new haven. Lulu found everything in the junkyard to build home out of recycled material. Mom and daughter have a bathtub, playroom, toilet and sinks in their new home. 


But the container only offered 160 square feet and the duo needed more space. So, she built a new bedroom on a used flatbed trailer. Lulu says,


“This was really a choice about how many hours do we have to our life, and how do I want to spend those hours?”

Lulu is not just a good mother who has made all amenities available for her daughter but has also challenged the stereotypes of a normal mother by living a simpler life and spending quality time with her daughter.
