    Wow. This is surprisingly nice. Probably the best container house I’ve seen. Everything you need and lots of space. The wood floors and partial interior walls. The on picture missing is the living room end. That would be nice to see. All in all, really, really, nice. The bed area is great, too. I like the under bed clothing storage with the hanging pole. Bathroom and all finishes really nice. Front door really nice. The only bumer is the 8′ width. Be great to have all this, only wider – like at least 12′. Two of them side by side with a big opening between them to give 16′ would be ideal. Put them together on-site.

      For $70K, it would be surprising if it *wasn’t* nice. The plain-jane container house from a couple weeks ago cost 1/3 as much, so we can’t compare.

    This is it! Everything I need in a tiny home. Don’t want wheels; no lofts; lots of light…. Only thing I would change is to get that bed closer to the floor. Maybe three feet high, with storage underneath, and some sort of closet/storage in the other corner. This is perfect!

    How do you get on to the roof I wonder?

    • Eric September 23, 2016, 5:30 am

      Perhaps by putting on your Spiderman costume. That way you can go anywhere. Allegedly. LOL

      • Mike December 20, 2016, 6:33 pm

        The only drawback to dressing as Spiderman is that you’d have to get bitten by a radioactive spider to really SELL the get-up—and I HATES spiders! πŸ˜€

    Very nice! I love the woodwork, and the shower!

  • Mary Dixon September 22, 2016, 4:40 pm

    Quite the place!! The idea of two sleeping places is perfect. The only thing I wish I could do is toss dirty dishes into the washing machine in the kitchen!!

  • Debra September 24, 2016, 8:53 pm

    I wish I had a tiny house.

  • Nancy M. September 27, 2016, 12:06 pm

    At that price, I just couldn’t justify it! Nice, and almost indestructible, but one could certainly do it cheaper, and have something just as nice — and even better, more personalized! I looked at making my own shipping container home, but ultimately had to settle on something else — which hopefully I will be able to move into in the next few weeks…… YEAH!

    • Rob September 27, 2016, 6:02 pm

      Yes if you can DIY it’s way cheaper, I built a container home that’s maybe 5x the size for a 3rd the cost, but many people have money and no building skills, I’m the opposite πŸ™‚

    It should become standard to show a floor plan of tiny houses to separate the “just nice to look at’s” from the “nice to look at and live in’s”. This is one of the few shipping container solutions that I have seen that seem to understand that humans need “stuff” that must be stored. Though apparently for this model to work most or all of your clothing will need to be folded…

      Folding does allow more things in a smaller space…but I love hangers! — Tiny House on Wheels

        Jay and Natalie,

        High fives! Our first change to any new abode? Remove the doors from the bedroom closets.

        We think clothes, hanging and clear-toted, are a design element… softening a squared space and offering a feeling of depth and home-ness.

        This under-bunkbed works. Nice job. We’re appropriating it. Consider it stole.

      Look at the back wall closer πŸ™‚

  • Emily H December 11, 2016, 9:20 pm

    I really like the way they have left the wiring exposed on the walls and ceiling. Almost reminds me of loft living and makes the space feel bigger.

  • Sondra February 3, 2017, 1:50 pm

    OK I am a fan of this house ! Love everything about it !

  • Cosy February 4, 2017, 4:03 am

    I love container homes and this one is nicely appointed. I’m wondering how to get on the roof, too.

  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN February 4, 2017, 1:26 pm

    I don’t know how this tiny house has escaped me, but it is just fantastic…! Love that it was built from a shipping container, it is one of my favorite platform’s to start a tiny house from… Now getting to it’s interior, everything is just so well thought out and brought together in one continues flow from room to room, starting from the French door entry to the loft bed with under storage area, It is so big you could add a desk, and use it as a tiny office…! Great Plan, I would love to see more of these, so long as the costs are held down to a minimum and keeping them affordable for everyone who wants to live tiny and dept free….!

  • ROSEE February 5, 2017, 7:56 am

    Great job on the finished shipping container. A blend of modern with some old style woodwork, a nice combination all around. Three thumbs up!

  • Mac February 21, 2017, 6:47 pm

    Is this the best manufacturer you have found of 40′ container homes? I love this design but the cost is really high and doesn’t quite pencil out as multi unit rentals…

    Who does everyone recommend as the best manufacturer and price combo?

  • Tim Roy March 4, 2017, 5:04 pm

    Is there a welder in the family? Wondering about where the brackets for the shelves came from.
