This looks doable. Never thought of using the tank from a tanker truck as a house.

Lamby, are you stalking my YT suggested feed?! I just watched that vid last night.  I had heard of these before, as they've been around for along time.  Very cool indeed, I doubt I could ever talk my old lady in to living in a tube though.

I can't watch ATM, but how different are they from shipping container houses?

These are round.  :icon_crazy:


I guess the main advantage is decreased surface area, and the shape leaves space for heating under the floor.

Saw a number of these "upcycled oil tanks" working an oil spill in the Komi Republic back in 1994.  .  Most were set up to be rolled from place to place by a tractor.

To me, more of an indication of how failed the Soviet economy was at the time.
