Vista C Shipping Container Tiny House from ESCAPE

This is the new Vista C Shipping Container Tiny House from ESCAPE.


It’s built using a standard ISO 20ft shipping container so it can be shipped anywhere or it can be attached to a special trailer made just for it so that it can be towed on the road.

Since shipping containers can qualify as permanent buildings in some areas, this could work as an ADU (accessory dwelling unit) or as another sort of permanent dwelling on your land.

You can also get optional closing doors for the Vista C so you can lock it up for maximum security. Other options includes fold down deck, rooftop deck, extra storage, larger kitchen, solar, etc.

    I have been always a big fan of shipping container conversions. This example is only lacking a lift up to ceiling bed to get a decent living area, awning above the nice fold up deck and huge windows and alighter color to absorb less heat on the metal skin. I couldn’t figure out weight and cost but ir seems to be a bit high for such an affordable shell. Otherwise well done.

    you inexplicably excluded the back outside view (opposite the door), stop at the deck and business end… was there a reason? (wanted to see detail of the windows and whether they, also, can be covered)

      That side can be seen in the second and third photo…

      There doesn’t appear to be anything that can cover them, but like he said in the video they have options. Like they can include the original container doors to cover the fore and aft ends, putting the mini-split on the roof instead, etc.

      So it doesn’t have to be exactly this configuration or look…

    I recall someone who made what they called a “Tin Can Cabin” by placing three twenty-footers side by side, cutting connecting doors and adding a roof.

    Instant (well, sort of) home that was 20 foot deep and 8×3 wide. Worked for me.

    Wish I could find his web page again.

    Not really fond of container building but this one looks fairly good.
    Problem with them is heat, cold so you have to build another wall anyway cutting any savings.
    But here at least on 2 sides much of the metal is cut away. Cutting more of it away would be better, just leaving the floor, roof and enough metal to buttress the corners.
    If you put the wall, insulation on the inside you only have 7′ of interior.
    I’d cut out most of the side metal and put in an insulated wall, insulate the floor, roof kind of like a post beam house.
    I think most all THOWs should not be built with trailers but sit on top of trailers mostly for moving, then used for something else.
    Another is hire a container truck for this one or a flat bed tow truck, rented, owned flat bed trailer to move saving a lot of costs.
    I build whole THs for the price some pay for trailers, it is such a waste unless you plan to move often.
    Using the metal cut as the porch support is a very nice touch.

    Do any of the windows come with screens?

    • James D. January 14, 2018, 12:42 am

      The windows they offer typically are double paned and come with built in blinds.

      The deck also folds up, which would cover the whole side and the front and rear have the option to keep the original container doors. So they too could be closed up if that’s how you have them configure it…

      Along with other customization options they offer with this model series, like you don’t have to get windows or windows that big if you don’t want it that way…

  • Sally Flynn January 15, 2018, 1:47 am

    I asked about screens because I have a cat and I don’t want him to get out when I open the windows. Also, I don’t want flys and mosquitoes getting in.
