When it comes to tiny house living, shipping container tiny houses are a great option because they’re inexpensive, usually recycled, and extremely durable. All of that sounds pretty great I’m sure, but how the heck do you make a shipping container into a home? I think you’ll be surprised by this top 10 list of shipping container homes because they range in several sizes and in a bunch of different levels of luxury, too. Next, with container number 2, let me show you what a man named Daniel Sokol is doing in New Hampshire with container conversions and his company called LEED Cabins. Notice that it has window awnings set up everywhere along with an RV-style air conditioning system. Today the container turned cabin serves as a rustic retreat as the Holiday Cabana at Maduru Oya.
Next up is number five: a modern shipping container house conversion with a natural touch called the Cordell House. According to The Coolist, the Cordell House was designed and built by developers Katie Nichols and John Walker, of Numen Development, with the help of architect Christopher Robertson. As you can tell the roof is topped with giant solar panels to help power most of the home while the deck gives you just enough outside area to enjoy. If you want to learn more about Hybrid Architecture’s container homes and designs visit their website where you can also check out the rest of their projects. Tiny container number 8 is perfect if you want a safe and secure getaway out in the woods, mountains, or even in your backyard.
The project is led by a man named Brian McCarthy and it’s an honor to get to show his work here on Tiny House Talk.
Container homes are absolutely fascinating in configuration and how clever some of the designers are.
Hey Jparkes- love that idea on dividing two containers or even two tiny houses on trailers with some outdoor space.
The only time that you place yourself in serious danger is if you step outside, during a storm.

I really like this, using two containers offset, and I like the layout, although it would be easy to rearrange it to suit one’s needs. Perhaps an article discussing some of the ups and downs would be useful from an expert, as well as someone who has completed a build. I’ve learned through kind responses that quite often the hardwood floors are treated with toxic coatings in both types of containers.
After an incredible Thai dinner tonight I came home to write a post and almost immediately ran into some shipping container house conversions from Thailand. These pictures come from a website that’s written mostly in Thai but it looks like a company that deals with shipping containers and part of their business must involve converting them into homes, stores and more. In this first example you can see how they installed windows, doors and even siding onto the shipping container which is now a home. Brenda Kelly’s off grid shipping container tiny house is truly a dream come true for her since she has been dreaming of a home like this since she was a 13 year old girl. She kept part of the container as a covered outdoor porch area to keep the structure at 107 sq.
When you look inside I think you’ll be impressed with her interior design and layout choices.
This container home sits on concrete blocks for a foundation, it’s powered by two solar panels, and is even set up with a rainwater collection system. If you enjoyed Brenda Kelly’s off grid shipping container tiny house you’ll absolutely LOVE our free daily tiny house newsletter with even more! She wouldnt be the first person I know that just buys whatever they are going to use for that day, so maybe that’s why she doesnt really need one.
As I review it again, keep liking the bathroom, its almost like having a mixture of a real bathroom with an outhouse. She explains why she needed the desk, the fridge is an under the counter unit And is located opposite the desk.
I am so interested in what you come up with because I want to do tiny but am challenges with lofts and ladders due to back problems. I love the idea of having the sleeping area under the living area, which allows the space to open up and then you have no need for ladders.


Does anyone know the best way, I can insulate a shipping container for the hot climate of North India where I live? I lived for 8 years in a travel trailer in Redding, California, which has a temperature spread similar to what you mention. Wow, I wasn’t expecting much after seeing the exterior, but I was blown away when I saw the interior.
The first time I saw this house, I saw how it solved my problem of not wanting to climb in and out of a loft. Brenda seriously needs to go into container house design as she is ingenious with this one! Thank you so much Brenda – for giving me the courage as a women to go ahead and pursue my container plans I wrote down so long ago. While it looks like glass it has many advantages over glass including being cheaper and easily cut.
This man (Larry) wanted to build a self-sustained and off-the-grid home out of two shipping containers. He wanted all of the comforts of a home and to be able to live in it comfortably up to a year or more if need be.
To do this he ordered two sea containers and welded them together to make one awesome cabin.
Water is heated using solar power or by wood stove if necessary. Access to water is by well. Before they were welded together he chained them and spray foam insulated the space in between them. Learn more about how he picked the land, got the containers, and how he adjusted them into the right spot here. He decided to cut the openings in arched shapes to retain the strength of the container’s roof and so that it will match the arched windows too. In total he spent about $35,000 to build it which includes the containers, well, landscaping, plumbing, interior, and the carport.

I have seen this cabin many times before posted online at facebook and other social media sites the last two years or so.
I used spray foam on the outside for a sealer and insulator, but you can simply use brush on water sealer just like they use for basement walls. That it was built for only 35k is amazing, and off grid too – yet it is so spacious – like a regular house! He did a great job — I have looked into using containers for a home and think it is a great cost effective idea. Sandi, I am working on some designs like that, When you insulate the insides, you actually will have even less room inside depending on what kind you decide to use. The design you were thinking about living in, was that a 20′ container or a 40′? I looked and looked and could not find out much about it, so if you have any idea where it came from and who built it, please let me know in the comments. It will cost you upwards of $59,500 if you want one built for you by Seattle-based Hybrid Architecture. They just added the floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors to brighten it up along with all of the extra fixtures you see below to give it a more artistic flavor.
The reason it’s so secure is because it has small windows and the larger ones can be completely enclosed to make it very challenging for a burglar to get into. PFNC’s mission, as it reads on their website is to raise the standard of living for families who currently reside in dangerous or substandard conditions. He has a passion for exploring and sharing tiny homes (from yurts and RVs to tiny cabins and cottages) and inspiring simple living stories.
The first one looks interesting but I wonder how weather and bug-proof those slideouts are? I like the idea of using two or more containers to create outdoor spaces between them, then covering the entirety with a giant over-roof…giving one only a couple hundred sq.
Properly insulated, it didn’t get warmer than any other structure and it was very economical to cool with an air conditioner. Even better, Shawn and his client have made the plans available for us to download too if you want them. People have found that seafaring containers may have toxic coatings to withstand the rigors of seawater.
However, there is a special place in the nether regions for whoever picked out that wallpaper, Glad you opted to leave that particular pic on the website.
They’re a young family who, over the past year, bought and prepared their land, collected recycled materials, and built their first home using two shipping containers and a shed-style roof!


Brenda has managed to create a work at home office space, kitchen, living room area, a bedroom with a wardrobe, and a spacious bathroom.
I know she said she wanted to make a deck but she could do both and add a bit more privacy while going to the toilet or shower. Creating a porch in the manner that it has been done and adding a bathroom rather than cramming one inside, demonstrate very original thinking.
The trailer had 3 inches of fiberglass insulation all around, although I’m sure thicker would have been better. Thanks for posting this tiny home and I too like a fellow poster stated, hopes that Brenda invites you back for a visit once the porch is completed! Larry was able to adjust them to the right spot (on his piers) with the help of the driver, his compact tractor, an old floor jack, and a 4 ton power-puller. No windows and it is a sea container made into a home so that this particular part of the “pantry” is built underground and made of steel so very strong, long lasting. To each his own and I am happy to see someone get the home of their dreams even if it’s not to my taste. If I could overcome that, I’d like to try something like that, to keep stationary during a tornado, and to help keep stable temperatures inside.
The story behind this one is really interesting because it was built by soliders in an army training camp using the container and timber from weapon boxes that the soldiers found around the area, according to Dezeen and Jetson Green.
This type of natural looking wood finish gives off a modern touch while still giving you that cool cabin feel.
It’s a little larger than what I usually like to feature here, but some folks truly need more space.
This particular design is called The Nomad and in 2011 was featured in Sunset Magazine, according to Tiny House Listings. We invite you to send in your story and tiny home photos too so we can re-share and inspire others towards a simple life too. Really so many good ideas overall but I have to say, whoever thought up putting a toilet behind a glass, see through wall was a strange bloke! If you visit THE small HOUSE CATALOG website and find the Tethys free plan page you’ll find a link to their page. I thought that was the end of my idea to clad the container on the outside and preserve as much space inside, until I found out about over-the-road containers built for trucking. Living here in Canada I would like to know more about the building, insulating and costs of these builds. I was referring to the cost of building a home using the container ie: framing, insulation plumbing etc.
This is a truly remarkable accomplishment and it’s wonderful that she was willing to share her treasure with us.
Too many designs out there waste space, but this one is perfect and not only that, it doesn’t seem cramped at all like many other shipping container homes.
It is kind of a Ford blue, with a white top, and a light grey interrior, but is hot as Hell on mild days. Having two containers would also give ideas to open space and covered space in other areas.
I’m sorry to say that if using containers to make your home costs more than more traditional methods then why. In my humble opinion, I would use the area where the laptop and printer sit for something else, maybe some shelfs? When she gets the patio area in, I hope we can revisit the site and see how it all came together. I believe a metal carport roof a couple of feet above, would help with that problem for my situation. What you have with the round top windows and inside paneling looks cute, and should appeal to the Mrs.
Although they still have floors made of hardwood and probably treated with something impervious to pests (read that: not healthy for humans, either), that can be encapsulated and the metal walls painted.
