Are there any plans for player housing or other sandbox features to be added later?
BTW First Post!!!
There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein"Graphics are often supplied by Engines that (some) MMORPG's are built in" - Spuffyre

Yes, there are plans for player housing and guild halls.
"Dedicated player housing will not be in Guild Wars 2 at launch but is planned for a later update."

there was the idea of Air Ships being player housing, but cant find the quote on it.

The talk was actually of Airships being Guild Housing
There are plans for Player Housing being added, though likely not in a format you will want if you are a big Sandbox fan.
Player run shops and other sandbox features are highly unlikely.
GW2 is (IMHO) an amazing virtual world but it is 100% a themepark virtual world.

Correct, and if there will be any player-housing in future, it will be themepark-style player housing, which again has nothing to to with a sandbox feature.

We will introduce player housing at some point after launch, and at that time we will also implement guild halls.

Player housing is not a feature that defines a sandbox style game in any way, in fact more theme parks have it than sandboxes.
I'm not sure that any MMORPG feature can be exclusively tied to either game design, (perhaps more of a matter of degree?) but one things for sure, the way GW2 is currently designed it will never be a sand box style game.
That road wasn't taken a long time ago and there's no going back.

In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.
