www.pfnc.net, is offering this single container, 2 person home for less than $10,000 (if you're not clostrophobic).

They took this:



And turned it into this:






All our bailouts could have bought 850,000,000 - more than enough for the starving homeless population, and I'm sure that money would have been spent 10000000x better.

Yeah, for 10k, not bad. Room + Board at Michigan costs 8k a year... And thats per roommate... Get one of those things and find a nice patch of unused land... Plenty of it in the UP within 15 minutes of Houghten. I could do it, lol.
