Containers for living

2 Sep

Upcycled homes never cease to amaze me.

You might remember this post about a transformed railway car home. Well how about a shipping container? While shipping containers might bring to mind things like rust, fishy smells or hard and cold metal, I think you’ll agree that this home is nothing less than spacious and modern.

This Costa Rican home was built from two 40′ containers with strategic cuts on the sides to allow for large windows. Even with hardwood floors, fully insulated walls and a raised roof, this innovated home was constructed with a $40,000 budget. There’s plenty of rewards to reap in green living and all it takes is some creative thinking. Thank goodness for those who can think outside of the container!
