You’ve probably seen some homes following the tiny home movement but the following homes are somewhat different. While a home constructed from one shipping container could be considered a “tiny” home, these designers used a multitude of shipping containers to build something unique, spacious, and beautiful.
There are several advantages to building shipping container homes versus traditional methods but one attractive advantage is definitely the price. The ability to build a 1,000-square-foot shipping container house for under $40,000 is an attractive proposition for home buyers looking for something different. Here are 10 beautiful shipping container homes designed by architects who were thinking outside the box.
