Shipping Container Is Template For Rural Housing Project

Cold Climate Housing Research Center

A shipping container outfitted as a kitchen and bathroom unit will be incorporated into a home built in the Norton Sound community of Unalakleet. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports the module is central to a small house project aimed at lowering the cost of residential construction in remote villages.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
