Share this story

Richardson's Yard 02It has been six months since the launch of the well documented shipping container homes now known as Richardson’s Yard.

We have interviewed three residents from Richardson’s Yard and given them the opportunity to talk openly and honestly about their experience of living in the shipping container homes.

Phoenix lived in supported accommodation before he moved into Richardson’s Yard. He described his new home as creating a ‘ripple effect’ on his life. He says that being in secure, comfortable accommodation has allowed him to focus on other areas of his life that needed attention.
