500-square-foot Off-Grid Shipping Container Home with Pool
onNovember 9, 2012
This 500-square-foot off-grid shipping container home might be what you’ve always dreamed of. And it’s for sale.
It has built in deck space, it’s own pool, and can easily be hooked up to utilities if you wanted to.
The interior is made out of OSB wood boards and it’s built with moisture resistant insulation.
There’s a murphy bed installed inside to double up on space when needed and is already hooked up with solar panels.
There are 4 panels at 240 watts each hooked up to a 3600 watt 24 volt inverter.
That means it produces anywhere between 3700 to 4400 watts of power per day as long as you have access to 5-6 hours of sunshine daily.

You’ll love the toilet with its built in sink that recycled gray water for flushing. Here’s something that should be installed in more homes as it’s a great concept to save water. What’s the point in going to the bathroom in perfectly good water if we don’t have to?
