    Love it, Though the seconded door seems like a big waste of space.

    • Michael L July 19, 2016, 9:23 pm

      A second door seems like a practial safety solution to me.

      • Dana Turner November 24, 2016, 4:56 pm

        A 2nd door is great, it’s the placement that is wrong.

  • ROSEE July 19, 2016, 3:11 pm

    What a cozy, comfy little abode. Despite the loft, it looks like a well made tiny house out of containers. Good job.

  • Kathy Handyside July 19, 2016, 3:13 pm

    I love this house!! I’d love to buy it and put it on a couple of acres of land in the country.

  • Kelli July 19, 2016, 4:53 pm

    Do you have a location with a few of these homes that we can tour ?

  • Michael July 19, 2016, 5:25 pm

    Another example how nice a a rock solid container home can be. Good job.

  • Larry Schoenemann July 19, 2016, 9:51 pm

    Like to see more of the bath. Like the doors. Sharp home.

  • Trish Dee July 20, 2016, 9:48 am

    I have toured this model and the 40′ model at this location: 332 W. Outer Road, Archie, MO. Contact Rick Meireis at 816-839-2829 to find out if they are still available. Pricing depends on the materials and fixtures you choose.

    Though a loft would not be functional for me, I can truly say that I reeeeeally like this container home! I like the use if space in tthe stairs as well the rise & run of the stairs is very generous and looks like I could easily make it up and down the stairs, no problem…particluarly with the pipe handrail! What I especially like the most is the exterior!! With the log cabin effect on the exterior, you would NEVER guess or know that the bones and structure of this home is a steel shipping container.

    Very functional living and this home is beautiful!! Nice. Really nice…

  • Nanny M July 21, 2016, 1:09 am

    Love the log cabin disguise.

  • Kay Marshall July 21, 2016, 8:14 am

    The more I see TH that are stationary, the more I like them. I live in a small home myself and have loved it from day one, 22 years ago. This place is beautiful and very well done! I think the THOW is seeing itself expanding into homes that are being built to stay put and that is a great idea…

    • Alex July 21, 2016, 1:41 pm

      Totally! THOWs are fantastic but I agree with you….stationary small homes are excellent too and we need more of them!

      • Lantz August 15, 2016, 9:29 pm

        The problem with so many THnotOW is that there are code restrictions on how small you can live in. If you have those, maybe a person could just raise this and hang a couple axles under it. LOL

  • Jerry July 23, 2016, 9:02 am

    i would like to find companies that will build with shipping containers in South Florida, but the one i have found are no longer in buisness.

  • Rob the Potter August 13, 2016, 11:34 am

    Pretty neat…like the rustic edge to it…

  • susan meier August 13, 2016, 11:48 am

    Very nice. Loft bedrooms are no longer an option for me, but all and all, it’s perfect. If I was doing one for myself, and I hope to one day, I’m sure a 1st floor bed could easily be worked into the design.

  • Lisa E. August 13, 2016, 2:00 pm

    Normally, I’m not a fan of rustic anything but I have to confess that this pulls together very nicely. I think the only things I might want to add would be a skylight in the loft and some solar panels on the roof. Other than these, this is a REALLY nice build.

  • Chris Taylor August 13, 2016, 5:04 pm

    I love the look of this Log Cabin container. I too prefer a permanent foundation, main floor bedroom and was wondering how I can get plans for this cabin, for I will need to modify and expand somewhat. Thank you!

  • Large Marge August 13, 2016, 6:23 pm

    MANCAVE!!! YeeHaw! Superb flow and style! Excellent use of sight-lines! Simple, clean! Thumbs up!

  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN August 13, 2016, 7:15 pm

    Comfortable looking house, I’m sure it would be easy to settle down in…

  • Robynne Catheron August 13, 2016, 8:17 pm

    Best so far, by far. LOVE the log cabin facade, and the interior is just as charming (I’m biased, though; I live in a log cabin). Looks like a smart use of space for storage, too. I’m in agreement that we need more stationary tinies. I sure hope we see more containers as well done as this one!

  • Donna August 15, 2016, 12:00 pm

    This is the first tiny home I don’t like. I need windows. Sure natural light is great but a person needs to be able to look out the window without getting in the loft or climbing a ladder. And the angle of the roof means the builder must have cut off the original roof of the shipping container. Why do that? Also what about the insulation? Is this a metal shipping container? The inside looks great but…

  • Shellie Scott August 15, 2016, 3:49 pm

    I couldn’t find the size of this home. I am looking for ideas for my 10×20 tiny home. What size is this one? Thanks

  • Melissa November 24, 2016, 6:21 pm

    After watching the Alaskan Brown Family lose their belongs and/or home destroyed by bears, twice, I would think this would be the safest way to live! Especially if you’re away from home for a few consecutive days! Try to get in one of these shipping container homes, Bears! Sweet setup!

    • Natalie Natalie November 25, 2016, 6:56 am

      Yes I think it’s fairly bear-proof 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

  • ZACHARY E. MOHRMANN November 27, 2016, 10:34 am

    Beautiful, simply beautiful….!

  • N.D. December 10, 2016, 10:49 pm

    They are doing good work. All look great. My favourite the 30footer.

  • Bruce Pritchett January 13, 2017, 3:05 pm

    Love this. The worst part about most shipping container houses is that they look like…. uh… shipping containers! This one dispenses with the industrial look and really looks cosy. I see people complaining about the loft, but in a tiny house where every bit of space counts, a loft is a very practical sleeping solution.

  • Sarah January 13, 2017, 3:19 pm

    My taste exactly! Don’t bike anymore but can see this is the home of a biker. Very comfy and rustic. How did they do the outside? Love love LOVE this one!

  • Gabriella January 13, 2017, 4:01 pm

    It will be because I suffer from claustrophobia, but to me the walls really just tell me little. I would put a bookcase or bed against a wall of glass, although in this case, I see some interesting coatings nice bikes.

  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN January 13, 2017, 9:57 pm

    And it’s a shipping container…! I can’t stress enough how many ways these containers are just the greatest way to start a build on a affordable tiny house…!

  • jm January 16, 2017, 7:36 am

    Seems tall for a shipping container. Also the builder chose to install siding on both the exterior and interior. Am I seeing the bottom of the shipping container as the sloped ceiling? If so, how was the ceiling insulated? What about a roof structure? Maybe…
