I’ve never seen such a colorful container home! This former Airbnb in Florida is largely yellow, with blue and green frames painted around the doors and windows. It really makes the outside feel tropical.
You walk through the French doors and the interior is much more modern. There’s an open-concept sleek, spacious kitchen/living area followed by the bathroom, and then finally a private bedroom. The doors on each end open up, one set with nature views. Tell us what you think!
Container homes are becoming popular all over the world — this one is tucked into the rugged landscape of Sicily! It features awesome bubble windows on either side and a window wall with views overlooking the countryside. Private and idyllic, this modern stay is something to write home about.
There’s an outdoor jacuzzi and a large terrace where you can enjoy a glass of wine. Inside, one-half of the container is dedicated to a sleeping area/kitchenette, and the rest is an open-concept bathroom complete with a rainfall shower head. What is your favorite part of this container?
Martha had been wanting to go tiny for a long time and one day she came across Randy and Incredible Tiny Homes on YouTube. She stayed up all night watching his videos, found out about his community, got in touch with them, and put down a deposit — all in a couple of days!
She loves her one-floor tiny home, dubbed the “Death Star” by her neighbors. As an avid Star Wars fan, she also loves the name. Most of all, though, she loves the community! Every day she has coffee or lunch or dinner or walks with neighbors who are all living tiny just like she is.
When Lea was diagnosed with endometriosis, she needed to find a more flexible source of income that would allow her to manage her condition and take time off as needed. The city of Albuquerque allows for ADUs, so she and her husband chose to purchase a shipping container and transform it into an Airbnb.
They also have an older adobe home, so their plan is that once the container home has paid for itself, they will move in and renovate their small home. The income stream is just what Lea needed, and she used her amazing design skills to make it quite the home!
Dashael had experience in commercial construction, making him a perfect candidate to complete this epic three-story shipping container home, built out of 5 shipping containers. While hardly tiny, the home is actually split in two — the bottom 950 square feet are Dash’s personal abode, while the top 900 square feet make up his Airbnb.
He even used a container standing upright to house a giant industrial staircase which connects all three “sections” of the build. The inside of the Red Steel House includes a loft bedroom, two bathrooms and a washer/dryer unit.
The fact that Cameron’s DIY container home sits over a stream is just the first of many unique features in this 125 square foot shipping container turned tiny house.
Inside you’ll find a electric bed lift over the living room, which allows you to transform the couch into a bed with the push of the button. But the real magic happens over in the bathroom, where the large closet actually pulls out of the shower when it’s time to wash up!
Watch this transforming house in action in Jenna’s tour below. While Cameron did live in it for a few months, he now rents it out on Airbnb while he builds another tiny house for himself.
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.
It features this bare look from the outside and a beautifully finished interior.
