The Shiship is a really cool tiny cabin that was designed and built by Repère Boréal in Quebec, Canada.

It’s a simple structure made with a single high-cube shipping container and it measures 31′ long x 8′ wide, and 9’6″ tall.  On the exterior, you can still see most of the original shipping container with lots of exposed corrugated steel and massive cargo doors at one end.  It’s an interesting visual reminder that the shell of this cabin had another life before it was repurposed.

The cedar accents balance out the more industrial look of the container and make it feel more welcoming, and the massive wooden window frame at the other end is a dramatic feature that defines the outside of the structure and makes it pretty unique.

This stunning modernist cabin sits on 5 acres in the Joshua Tree desert. While the Marmol Radziner architecture is gorgeous, you simply can’t beat the rugged and beautiful terrain surrounding the home.

Inside features one bedroom and one bath, but you’ll get an exterior shower (with plexiglass so you can enjoy the views) as well as a two-person tub sitting across from imposing boulders on site. A covered exterior patio lets you enjoy everything Joshua Tree has to offer.

Hope you’re not afraid of heights because this tiny A-frame cabin is perched 40 feet in the air!  The exterior is all windows and angles, including a diamond shape on one side, but the interior is full of curved details and has a cozy ambiance to soften the feel of the space.  It was designed and built by the team at Repère Boréal in Charlevoix, Quebec, and they call it The Uhu.

Getting up into the cabin is a pretty cool experience: you climb an enclosed spiral staircase and once you reach the top, you cross a 20-foot bridge to get to the cabin’s front door.
