I use this project before or after a big break or after our state tests. Students will create their own living space design using a shipping container. They are given a budget and they have to buy the containers, insulation, utilities, and all of the furniture and appliances. They will fill out a form about what they choose to put in their living space and why. They can also make their storage container eco friendly for extra points. You can have them go more into detail about what they will have on their walls and what their outside space will look like.
