Container homes are an awesome way to reduce-reuse-recycle, and with the cost of lumber these days it’s likely somewhat more economical than the alternative.
These are plans for a container home (estimated $20,000 in materials to build — expect to pay more today as material costs have gone up quite a lot since this was estimated) that includes a downstairs bedroom and epic rooftop deck with a full staircase!
The example home below has dark, modern finishes, but you could — of course — make it look like whatever you want. You can buy the plans here.

Love the transition from wood paneling to drywall.
The lighting they chose is quite different.
Huge doors take you inside.
The living space in this home is mostly outdoors.
Tiled shower in the bathroom.
I like the overhang for the porch.
This version has the stairs on the side.
