This unique home started as two shipping containers–20′ and 40′. We insulated and paneled the interior in pine shiplap and trimmed it out in 100+ year old barnwood. The outside is clad with cedar siding with spacing to allow the original container to still be seen. Entry is through the original container doors or a side entry with a standard door. We removed the steel panels from the doors and replaced them with picturesque full glass. The fun rooftop deck is surrounded by a custom cable railing system and lit with LED lights under the rail that gives the deck a beautiful glow at night. The deck and upstairs bedroom is accessed by an exterior spiral stairway.

It’s available to book on Airbnb and you can also customize and order your own from CargoHome.

      Yes I do agree. Internal stair is very important to access at night downstairs. It will be perfect design if this one item is considered.
      I like the simplicity and ergonomic.

    Love this design! I’ve always been a “container” fan. Just one question….is there an inside stairway to the bedroom?

    Love the concept but not even practical without stairs INSIDE!

    its lovely though I have to say I dont like the fact there is no way to get to the upstairs bedroom but to go outside. Very impractical especially during extreme weather of any sort, to hot or to cold.

    Great idea! I would have to have an indoor stairway and curtains on the bedroom door for privacy! Otherwise, it’s really neat and spacious for a tiny home.

    Absolutely lovely. I just don’t like that you can only access the bedroom from outside. Bummer in cold or rainy weather.
