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!
This is a 160 sq. ft. shipping container tiny house by Katz Box out of Columbus, Ohio. This model is called The Calico.
The Calico Home is designed to grow. Built as an efficiency unit, this 160 square foot home was created to inspire a new generation of homeowners to think small (and in stages). Due to its stature and mobile features, the home is designed to scale from one to three units based on the owners needs.
It’s kind of like a multi-functional studio apartment in a box, isn’t it? What do you think? To explore more amazing tiny homes like this, join our Tiny House Newsletter. It’s free and you’ll be glad you did! You even get free downloadable tiny house plans just for joining!
