Living in a shipping container?

Looks pretty cozy, the Dutch seem big on the idea.

They are making, not only single family homes, but entire apartment complexes out of cargo containers.

Why not? Insulating them would seem to be the big drawback, a sweat box in the summer and a refrigerator in the winter, but with rigid foam insulation today, these problems are fixable.
