This Family Home is Built with Shipping Containers

Neil and his family wanted a vacation home where they could get out of the city and enj0y the nature in Joshua Tree. Why container homes? Because it was cool and different! What they thought would take a year or two and $150,000 ended up taking three full years and over $650K to complete. But now that it’s done, it’s available on Airbnb for the whole world to enjoy.

The house has one main container where there’s a kitchen and living room. Two bedrooms and a bathroom sit in one of the other two containers, and the primary bedroom and luxury bathroom take up the other one. In the middle of everything, there’s a concrete patio with outdoor furniture and a giant Adirondack chair. There’s even a container pool to cool off in! What do you think?
