The container-based homes have probably existed ever since the first containers came around. Based in Archie, Missouri, a company named Custom Container Living has designed a small immobile house out of a container that is not only more spacious than a typical container house but also includes a full-size bathroom. The secret to the spaciousness of the dwelling is its raised roof.
A single 12 meters (40 feet) shipping container was used to make the home with a total floor space of 28 square meters (312 square feet). The height of the container was extended by 76.2 cm (30 inches) which makes room for two lofts. A section from the front of the container was removed to create a front porch.
The main living space inside the container leads to a small kitchen which includes a refrigerator, washer, dishwasher, and a microwave. The bathroom at the back side of the home has a tub, shower, toilet, and a sink along with a vanity unit. So much luxury for life in a container!
Storage integrated stairs help to reach the two sleeping and storage lofts at the top.
The container home is covered in lap siding edged Cedar. A Mitsubishi mini-split system provides air conditioning to the closed-cell foam insulated unit.
If the description makes you want one, all you need in US$ 47,000.
