Blue trim contrasts well with the light wood.
The floors are cork! What do you think?
Skinny stove and plenty of cabinets in the kitchen.
Perfect! A Murphy bed provides ground-floor sleeping.
Bright and clean bathroom with washer/dryer combo.

I am not a huge fan of container tiny houses. However, this one was built very well.
Very nice design. Cork flooring is very easy on your feet.
I have never stepped on it before! I’d love to try it.
Well done! Impressive design and execution. There appears to be ample room for a couch/living area at the far end with the double glass doors – just hard to gauge by the pics. The kitchen is just big enough with all the necessities, and the bathroom looks great – love how they incorporated the W/D unit and large closet space for linens, clothing, etc. in there (just wish there were a pic of the shower!). If I had somewhere to put this home, I would place a bid, for sure. 🙂
Yes it had so many awesome features! Sorry they didn’t have more pictures!
Totally awesome….they should be proud. Someone will get a very nice home.
I love container home .❤️😍
I was wondering can you do a tour video of seeing this container home ?
I wish I was in the area and could! I’m afraid I’m not around to go take a video though.
Would like to see tiny house for seniors with mobility issues. Bedroom on first level. Also no composting toilet. With a small porch, solar panels for eco power. Place for wheel chair and lift at front sliding door.
