At Metro Flooring, we have seen a lot of different homes. We often go out to homes to measure rooms for new flooring, or go to homes to install new flooring, but we have never been to a home built out of shipping containers. We recently saw a story in the LA Times that caught our eye and thought we would share it with you.
“Two entrepreneurs who have spent their careers fixing up old houses for resale have constructed a home out of six shipping containers. Matt Jakstis, 28, and Jonathan Sanders, 31, said the idea behind the two-story home on 2590 Island Ave. in San Diego was to keep costs down and follow the trend of reusing old material instead of wood for a new home.”

The price for this unusual home is a measly $800,000.
Well, we do not know if this is a good investment or not, but we do know that homeowners in, and around, San Diego, CA, can add value to their homes by having SmartStrand™ Naturals carpeting installed. This is not just us saying this. This is a fact.
Ask any home appraiser if installing high-quality flooring systems will increase the value of a property, and you will get a resounding yes as your answer. And if you press the appraiser and ask about brand names and fiber lines in carpeting, they will tell you that SmartStrand Naturals is right up there at the top of the list. This is very high quality carpeting that is perfect for any home, especially for homes that have kids or pets.
