Windy Court Provides Affordable Housing From Shipping Containers

This shipping container home at Windy Court was built by Boise-based IndieDwell and facilitated by LEAP Charities.

LEAP Charities partnered with the National Housing Trust Fund and the Idaho Housing and Finance Association along with builders IndieDwell to create Windy Court, a housing development in West Boise built out of shipping containers. The concept creates affordable housing options in one of the fastest-growing housing markets in the country. Idaho Matters talks with Leap co-founder Bart Cochrane and LEAP CEO Scott Flynn about this unique approach to housing.
