43 Modern and Cheap Shipping Container Homes to Consider

0

In recent times, the growing environmental concerns have lead to a spurt in demand for shipping container homes. Now, you might be wondering how exactly are shipping containers going to reduce our carbon footprint?

Well, it is the use of recyclable and reusable building materials that will help us build a sustainable future and reusing old shipping containers to construct homes is a great way to do so. More importantly, shipping containers are modular and can be easily transported to any part of the world. On top of that, they take a few weeks to fabricate and can be easily installed within a day.

There are many more benefits to building shipping container homes as you will soon find out in the following list. So read along to discover some incredible shipping container residences and get inspired to build a smarter home for your family.

1. The Adriance House by Adam Kalkin

Take a look at the illustration below. This stunning shipping container home was built by Architect Adam Kalkin, who specializes in modern shipping container home architecture.

The Adriance House, located in Northern Maine, was built using 12 shipping containers. It has an estimated interior area of 4000 square feet (371 square meters) which is quite generous in our opinion.

In case you are wondering about the huge glass walls, they make this shipping container home seem even more spacious from the inside and make you feel more connected with nature. Moreover, there is no need to worry about your privacy as the giant black curtains can cover the entire glass wall. Although, we must admit that the huge size of those curtains will definitely make it a pain to wash when they are dirty.

2. The PV-14 House

This spectacular shipping container home belongs to Matt Mooney, who is a principal at Corgan based in Texas. This incredibly modern design was brought to life using 14 shipping containers. While the PV-14 House is not as spacious as the Adrian House despite having more shipping containers, it still has a rather large 3700 square feet (343 square meters) of interior space.

That translates to three spacious bedrooms, an outdoor swimming pool, three full-size bathrooms along with a half bath, and more! That is enough space for a family of four and then some!

In a chat with Container Home Plans, Matt states that he had always wanted to construct a shipping container for almost 25 years. He even spent a lot of time studying about the entire building process.

3. The Taj Malodge by Larry Wade from Sea Container Cabin

Although the Taj Malodge may not look as fancy as the 1st two shipping container homes featured on our list, it is quite cozy, and more importantly, it is situated in a beautiful environment.
