This is Germaine’s double shipping container home in Tasmania that she had built after her divorce. Her sons live in the “big house” next door, and she has this private space built over an existing carport. It’s built out of two containers set at a 90-degree angle, with a spacious covered porch in the middle where she loves to entertain.

Speaking of entertaining, Germaine requested a large kitchen with full-sized appliances and plenty of bench space so she can prepare delicious meals. Her bathroom has a walk-in shower and flushing toilet, and she has a cozy bedroom with a walk-in closet! What a fun space to live.

Ready to see one of the most gorgeous container homes ever designed? This is the primary residence of John Winder, who owns and operates Winder Tinyhouse Factory in New Zealand. What started as a hobby turned into his full-time job, and finally he used his skills to build his best container home yet, which he has the privilege of living in.

Altogether, the house is about 377 square feet. He used creative container “bump outs” to provide extra elbow room inside the home, adding bump outs to the bedroom and living room area. To expand his living area — and take advantage of the mountain views — he added a large covered patio.

This is a 160-square-foot container home in Blue Ridge, Georgia that’s perfectly situated among the trees. One of the coolest features of the cabin is a giant rooftop deck that extends out from the edges of the container to act as a roof for the lower wrap-around deck. It’s down there that you’ll find a hot tub and rocking chairs with a view.

Inside the container, there’s a studio-style set-up with a queen-sized bed in the middle. A kitchenette on the left has a two-burner cooktop, mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. To the right of the bed, there’s a bathroom with a residential toilet and shower stall. What do you think of this shipping container cabin?

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?

This PodTel might be the future of housing! It was factory-built and dropped off via crane in the Spanish desert, and it’s completely, 100% self-sustaining. The tiny house is off-grid with solar panels, an incinerating toilet, and a water system that sucks moisture out of the air to provide water for the home.

All of those features are then controlled by your smartphone via a special app, making the entire house smart as well as sustainable! You can dim the lights, control the temperature, and even purchase locked “extras” while you stay there. Because the home is self-contained, it can be placed just about anywhere in the world (that you can move a crane, of course). What do you think?

Container homes are always neat, but I just love what they did with the faux stone on the exterior of this one! What makes the inside so special is the use of all reclaimed wood. It’s especially lovely in the cozy first-floor bedroom.

The full bathroom features a vintage pedestal sink and the bathroom has an old cast iron sink, giving the home extra character. There’s a comfortable living room and seating for four at the dining table. Could you live in this container home?
