Another thing that better than seeing a stunning container house is having one of them. Many of you might wonder how to build a container house, that’s why we want to show you these ideas. Please don’t mind to take a peek.
COMBINING WITH GLASSES
The house creates a simple glazed living space that opens up to become a front porch to the beautiful Hood Canal. The east-facing house is sited along a high bank, with a wonderful view of the water. During the warm summer months, the living area feels like a large, open porch.
INTO THE WOODS
The popular assumption is that it is a shipping container home, but it is actually wood-framed, copper-clad volumes, all varying in size, proportion, and natural light. This house includes interior and exterior stairs, ramps, and bridges for travel throughout.
Most of the non-bearing walls were demolished in order to allow for a more open concept while dividing the house into clearly defined private and public areas. A new screened porch extends the family room through a large folding door – completely blurring the line between inside and outside.
How does it seem to have a container house with wooden materials on the exterior? Then you should take a look at this one. To make it seems open to the outdoor space, many of windows are installed each side of the house.
MODERN CONTAINER HOUSE
Exterior materials are completely maintenance-free: metal siding and aluminum windows and doors. The metal siding has an alternating pattern using two different siding profiles. The house has a number of sustainable or “green” building features.
THE FRONT VIEW
This is the front of our shipping container house exterior at night with lights on under the huge veranda. This container house was based on the style of a ‘Queenslander style’ home
This project questions the need for excessive space and challenges occupants to be efficient. Two shipping containers saddlebag a taller common space that connects local rock outcroppings to the expansive mountain ridge views. The loft deck invites easy camping as the platform bed rolls between interior and exterior. The project is planned to be off-the-grid using solar orientation, passive cooling, green roofs, pellet stove heating and photovoltaics to create electricity.
FULL OF WOOD
It might be different from other ideas because of the shapes. It has the container feels at the upper space of the house, while the lower part seems like the regular homes.
URBAN LIVING HOUSE
In the urban sense, the neighborhood remains somewhat edgy but is slowly absorbing some of the calming effects of gentrification. Although momentum has stalled somewhat since the economic downturn, recent re-occupation of two nearby warehouses, one as housing and one as a charter school, has contributed significantly to establishing a more hospitable and engaging character to the neighborhood.
GREEN CONTAINER HOUSE
The cabin consists of two bedrooms and two bathrooms – with guest quarters accessed from the exterior deck. The project is assembled with the structural and weather tight use of shipping containers. The ends will be structurally reinforced and enclosed with additional site-built walls and custom-fitted high-performance glazing assemblies.
Container houses may cost way less than regular homes. Are you trying to have one?
