An economy like this, huh Gary…

That's right, Dude. Given the circumstances, any and all affordable home concepts should be given some serious consideration... PFNC Global Communities has big plans to change the way we think about building homes - "to provide housing to those who most desperately need it around the globe."

For roughly $10k, PFNC has been able to transform a standard shipping container into a fully functional "1st-world" multi-family residence complete with full kitchen, washroom with shower, bedroom, and sleeping for up to 6.

Throw in a Tata Nano, and for about $13,000 (total) you can afford a home and a car.
