direct me to an appropriate group.
I've been eyeballing these surplus steel and aluminum shipping
containers as a relatively cheap component for building houses. Has
anyone designed a pier foundation for these containers? If so, is

In Iraq, right now, several companies are taking clean ones, adding
insulation, power, a/c, and sometimes plumbing, and selling them to
Uncle Sam to house all the contractors on the bases. They stack them 2
high, in long rows, like a prefab 1960s roadside motel. You don't wanna
know how much you are paying for them. They call them CHUs, for
Containerized Housing Units. The contractors actually prefer them to the
tents they were sleeping in.
