I keep seeing those, foolish idea, but evidently someone is buying them. Why anyone would go to the trouble to wrap a conex box with logs is beyond me. 
personally I would feel like i were being trafficked if i woke up every day to the inside of one of them.

I wouldn’t go to all the trouble of putting logs on it. Set it in the woods, build a single pitch roof on top, wood stove in the corner, overhang to dry clothes under or hang gear, and you got a made to order deer shack.

Ya I dunno. Got mixed feelings on this. If I was to build a log cabin, I think I would leave the container out. Or vice versa, if I was to use a container I wouldn't go to the trouble of putting logs around it. Tho on second thought they might insulate and protect it a bit?

The container will be still be there after the predicted wild fire 

I wonder if they hold up to the directed energy weapons?

 That's a valid question.

It does dress it up a bit. But looks like a heck of a way to host every sort of unwanted small critters, insects, arachnids.

I have been contemplating converting a 40' high bay into a cabin for my place up north. My buddy up there does residential/commercial spray foam, owns a spray foam rig, so it'll be well insulated. Couple windows and patio doors, little wood stove. Be a cozy and weather proof shack for a fraction of the cost of building something. And when I build my house, pretty much guarantee I could sell it for whatever I have into it.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig.

Honestly, I don't understand spending the money to put this together with little chance on an equal return.

I will say that this structure is probably much sturdier than some of the old dilapidated trailer houses that people live in around us.

I have been in and around a used container over 20 years. It has been amazing in that no sign of a mouse ever getting in. Yes it needs insulation, but no leaks. I see the beauty of the logs your not looking at another container sitting out in a field.
