160 Sq. Ft. Katz Box Shipping Container Tiny House

This is a 160 sq. ft. shipping container tiny house by Katz Box out of Columbus, Ohio. This model is called The Calico.

The Calico Home is designed to grow. Built as an efficiency unit, this 160 square foot home was created to inspire a new generation of homeowners to think small (and in stages). Due to its stature and mobile features, the home is designed to scale from one to three units based on the owners needs.

It’s kind of like a multi-functional studio apartment in a box, isn’t it? What do you think?

      It’s just their show model, and the company is promoting the ideal of minimalism and affordability, but interior is modular… So it’s customizable and of course can be decorated as well… Along with the option to combine up to three units together for scalability and different layout options…
