More On Shipping Container Building


Back on May 16th I wrote a post on Shipping Container Buildings
and as I was reading the local Santa Fe arts guide yesterday, Pasatiempo
 in the Santa Fe New Mexican, there was an article on the very same project.
 Sorry but Pasatiempo is a pay site, not sure about the archives.

 to see the the San Francisco De Asis church.
