    Beautiful inside! I really like this. There is so much light and space.

  • Holly Clift December 9, 2016, 11:01 am

    Now this I love and you reused something I feel needs to be used. LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  • Larry December 9, 2016, 11:38 am

    Very sharp. Love the set up. I was wondering why are the containers raised and not just setting on the cement slab? I thinking you might have colder floors in the winter and possible having little creatures making homes underneath.

      It could just be to meet codes or make it easier to move in the future. — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Dug December 9, 2016, 1:12 pm

    Ive found my country idyll sadly the UK don’t recognise such buildings thus planning would be impossible.
    But bravo builder finally a totally suitable home for the elderly and disabled a really worthy contender indeed

      It’s so sad that they aren’t legal! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Emily c. December 9, 2016, 4:56 pm

    I don’t care for the exterior at all. Looks too much like a couple of shipping containers slapped together. But the interior is great! The kitchen is wonderful and I really like the arch way separating the kitchen from the living area. I’d like a small home such as this. With big enough containers, you could have 2 bedrooms. I know some people like the tin roof look for the bathroom I would rather have tile. It has a warmer feel.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie December 12, 2016, 1:38 pm

      I do love tile — and this house! — Tiny House Talk Team

      • Lin T January 30, 2017, 11:11 pm

        Agreed…I too would much prefer tile in the bathroom. Otherwise it is just perfect! Nice to see an alternative to having to crawl up into a loft for a bedroom-not everyone wants to or can!

  • Susanne December 9, 2016, 7:09 pm

    I agree with Emily….:)

  • Mr. Lonnie December 9, 2016, 8:29 pm

    Here’s a concept to consider with so much room: a slightly elevated bathroom that is just that, a room with a tub and a shower area with a central drain and a door to close; and a toilet in his own separate room with a wee hand washing sink, a room that’s called the toilet!

  • Michael December 9, 2016, 9:02 pm

    Great job! Two 20′ containers provide more space and when you
    are not planning to move often it seems to me a better deal.
    Prices for the shown set up starting at 51.900 bucks.
    Compare yourself with prices of tiny house builders.
    You can still move them by full size truck and you get a rock solid structure withstanding all kind of disaster.

      Containers are a great tiny house on wheels alternative! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Nanny M. December 10, 2016, 2:30 am

    What a beautiful application of shipping containers! Looks so spacious and comfortable!

  • Pam Maes December 10, 2016, 12:13 pm

    I am completely in love!!!! It’s perfect in almost every way. I really could see myself spending the rest of my senior years living here. A few changes I would make would be to add a mini-split to the kitchen area (I don’t see one), add a dishwasher drawer or 2 to the right of the sink, eliminate the wood burner stove in the living room to free up more floor space. Other than that, it’s very beautiful and livable!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie December 12, 2016, 1:25 pm

      All good ideas for improvement! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Patricia December 10, 2016, 5:51 pm

    This is so lovely. The inside is well done. However, I would like this done with 40′ containers to give us a bit more room for us and our kitties. The only changes I would make would be to have a gas stove in the kitchen as I like cooking with gas better, and instead of a shower, put a wonderful, deep soaking tub in the bathroom.

  • Nancy December 23, 2016, 9:12 am

    Perfect!!! Love everything about it!!!

  • Andrew December 23, 2016, 11:30 am

    Does anyone know what the colours are called on the cabinets?

  • Gary Gray January 16, 2017, 6:37 pm

    Great!

  • Richard January 16, 2017, 7:01 pm

    Just curious. Why put metal siding on a shipping container? Seems like an additional expense for no real reason. If you want your container green just paint it green.

  • Large Marge January 16, 2017, 8:35 pm

    How do I reach the windows over the sink and stove?

    • Rev January 16, 2017, 8:39 pm

      Large Marge,
      You open and close those windows with a gettin’-down stick.
      Sheesh. For a smarty-pants, you can sure be gregarious.

      • Pam Kerstein-Maes January 16, 2017, 9:14 pm

        Rev, love your answer! LOL I know this post is a repeat and I commented on it in December, but thanks for reminding me of how much I love this home and how perfect it is!

  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN January 16, 2017, 9:24 pm

    I love it even though it gives green wood new meaning with it’s green cabinets and panels….!

  • Patty January 17, 2017, 3:10 am

    This is the nicest shipping container home I have seen, both inside & out. I hope the moisture & venting issues have been addressed. Very nice!

  • Heather Anthony January 26, 2017, 9:02 pm

    How tall are these shipping containers please? Can a 6’2″ person live in one ok?
    Thank you!!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 27, 2017, 7:22 am

      Depends on which one, but many are more than 9 ft. tall.

    • Michael January 27, 2017, 7:57 am

      Shipping container are coming with two exterior heights, standard is 8’6″ and high cube 9’6″.
      Inside you get about 6″ less but you have to deduct insulation and wall panels and the floor you would like to have.
      Roof insulation shouldn’t be less than 3″ (4″ to 6″) is better because steel is easy heating up/cooling down.
      Floor insulation depends on the area where you live but I wouldn’t go for less than 2″.
      There is the option to insulate the floor from underneath with about 3″ but you will get some thermal bridges.
      Usually you are ending up with 7’10” with the standard and 8’10” with the high cube.
      But there is definitely sufficient standing headroom for 6’2″ as long
      as you don’t want to put a sleeping loft.

      • Brian March 4, 2017, 1:30 am

        and… A person could always stack and attach them, creating opportunity to cut at least half into the second story for more headroom! two story with great area? and 16′ ceiling on at least half.

  • Brian March 4, 2017, 1:26 am

    Great Upcycling! Great design…. It amazing counties and cities all over the country are still outlawing these containers for dwellings. Things need to start changing with the times.

  • Adina Hirschmann April 16, 2017, 3:00 pm

    My favorite configuration, so far. Room sizes are closer in proportion to stick-built small ranch houses so most of the furniture from your previous dwelling should fit. Now, a single-wide second story, over the double-wide…
