I've sent some pretty cool ideas out over the months, but this has to be one of the best ideas out there.. And greenest too!

The idea is to build a home from an old shipping container. I've teamed up with a fella that goes by the name of Warren Thatcher.

He's a professional builder by trade. But, not your average builder.

You see, he uses old shipping containers to build exciting and creative homes for a fraction of the price of building a home using conventional methods.

=> Check out some of his creative designs here

Warren's been building container homes for the past 14 years and over that time he's helped hundreds of others build their very own container home.

No he's really putting his knowledge to the test because he's personally invited you to try out his DIY container home plans.

Go ahead, take a look at Warren's plans and designs. Some of them are really cool and it's hard to believe he's used old shipping containers for the foundation.

=> Look at these container homes

All the best,

truction of the Roman Empire in the fifth century AD, the Roman Catholic Church rose to power in Europe. As the gatekeepers, their ruling power applied from the king to the common people.In the Middle Ages, the Church was considered to be conveying the will of God, and it regulated the standard of behavior in life. A lack of literacy required most people to rely on the priest’s explanation of the Bible and laws. In the eleventh century, the Church persecuted many groups including pagans, Jews, and lepers in order to eliminate irregularities in society and strengthen its power. In response to the Laity’s challenge to Church authority, bishops played an important role, as they gradually lost control of secular authority, and in order to regain the power of discourse, they adopted extreme control methods, such as persecuting infidels. The Roman Church collected wealth from believers in the Middle Ages, such as the sale of indulgences. The Church accumulated wealth but did not pay taxes, making the Church's wealth even more than some kings. Thirteenth-century In the 13th century, much of Europe experienced strong economic growth. The trade routes of the Italian states linked with those of established Mediterranean ports and eventually the Hanseatic League of the Baltic and northern regions of Europe to create a network economy in Europe for the first time since the 4th century. The city-states of Italy expanded greatly during this period and grew in power to become de facto fully independent of the Holy Roman Empire; apart from the Kingdom of Naples, outside powers kept their armies out of Italy. During this period, the modern commercial infrastructure developed, with double-entry book-keeping, joint stock companies, an international banking system, a systematized foreign exchange market, insurance, and government debt. Florence became the centre of this financial industry and the gold florin became the main c urrency of international trade. The new mercantile governing class, who gained their position through financial skill, adapted to their purposes the feudal aristocratic model that had dominated Europe in the Middle Ages. A feature of the High Middle Ages in Northern Italy was the rise of the urban communes which had broken from the control by bishops and local counts. In much of the region, the landed nobility was poorer than the urban patriarchs in the High Med
