Lulu is a single mom who’d gone back to school and didn’t have the time or interest in working full-time to pay for rent. So when she had to move out of her more conventional home, she decided to move herself and her daughter into a shipping container.
With no building experience, Lulu spent just one month cutting windows and a door and installing insulation and a basic kitchen (complete with propane-powered campstove and on-demand water heater).
Then she and her daughter moved into the 8 by 20 foot square foot home, fitting a bed, couch, bookshelf and kitchen cabinets into the 160 square foot box.
When Lulu decided they needed a bit more space, she went from shipping to trucking waste and began to build their bedroom on a used flatbed trailer.
“It’s really mostly built like a shed. It’s a nice looking shed, but it’s really an 8 by 16 shed with windows in it.”
Using only recycled building materials- including used floorboards, windows, cabinets, doors, bathtub, toilet and sinks- she built the entire thing for about $4,000 (trailer included).

Paul G. Allen School researchers present CovertBand, which transforms commodity devices with microphones and speakers into active sonar systems capable of tracking people’s movement and activities – even through walls, doors and windows. The high-frequency sonar pulses are concealed within the beats of popular songs, making CovertBand indistinguishable. This means that an attacker can implement the attack remotely by using music apps that play the modified versions of popular songs. To learn more, visit http://musicattacks.cs.washington.edu/.
