This tiny unfolding shipping container home is one of a kind although it did disappoint me a bit. I’ll tell you why later.
At just 20′ by 8′ it unfolds into five different rooms. Yes, this design packs a kitchen, dining room, bedroom, living room and library.
And guess what? It transforms at the push of a button. Hence the name.
If that’s not cool enough you should also know that it’s prefabricated using recycled and/or recyclable materials.
This might be a tiny house that’s truly at the cutting edge of sustainability and innovation. But there’s a catch.. It still needs a roof once it’s unfolded. I didn’t like that.
We have a video tour, interview and design overview that you can watch below:
The first ten minutes of the video is an interview with Adam (the designer/architect) which goes over how the container home was designed. So if you want to skip that and go directly to touring the house start at about 10:18. Warning: the video contains occasional foul language.
Be sure to watch beginning at around 7:30 though because you’ll get to see how it was built in fast forward which is really cool/interesting.
I think this design is more art than house because it’s missing a roof. There’s also fake furniture throughout that looks as if it’s just molded material. But the design is still innovative.
I guess it’s something you can use to put within your existing barn or warehouse?
