Rory Rubin, co-founder and CEO of S.I. Container Builds, joins Scott Kitun on the show. S.I. Container Builds offer customizable ADUs (accessory dwelling units) using shipping containers that are affordable, simple and environmentally conscious. Rory shares with Scott the origin story for starting S.I. Container Builds.
According to Rory, there are more than 23 million shipping containers that can be recycled as potential ADUs that are low-cost to build and be built quickly. Rory talks mission to address the housing crisis, why this opportunity left her switching careers and entering the construction space she grew up around with her family.
They share stories about the various use-cases for ADUs, getting seed investment from Hyde Park Angels (and from previous guest Pete Wilkins) and starting a company from scratch.
