WOW!!! Shipping Container Transformations. Wait Until You Look Inside.…

1. This home in Savannah, Georgia was created by Price Street Projects.
It's sleek, modern, and bright... but what's really interesting about it is that it's made entirely from shipping containers!

Hard to believe that a home this gorgeous was made from something so simple.
In addition to being really neat looking, homes like this one are a great way of recycling discarded containers that would no longer have a use

This 800 sq ft home features one bedroom, one bath, 
and a long open kitchen flooded with loads of daylight.

Shipping container homes are a genius way to re-purpose something 
we'd otherwise throw away. These are the most amazing ones I've come across.
This is a shipping container. It’s used to transport large amounts 
of goods on boats and on trains. By itself, it’s pretty boring.

2. This shipping container house actually has another house built INSIDE it!

Check this out....

3. This two-story American Dream embraces its shipping container roots, as well

4. This Flagstaff, Arizona home was made from six containers.

The roofdeck is probably the best feature of all! Who knew so much was possible using such simple materials?

5. This bright and light little prefab home is like a Barbie Dream House come to life.

14. This house in El Tiemblo, Spain was made from four containers.

The 2,045 sq ft house took approximately 6 months 
to construct and a budget of 140,000 euros

15. This painted fancy pad by Brazillian Architect. 
Marcio Kogan doesn’t try to hide the containers.

Look at those wooden floors. Beautiful

There’s even a garden on top!

23. This modern home in Redondo Beach is made of shipping containers.

It looks more like a traditional mansion than anything else,

3 1/2 baths, and even a spacious living room equipped with fireplace

24. This San Jose home has a slanted roof on 
top to let hot air out and sunlight in.

It cost only $40,000 to build.

But it has million dollar views.

25. This adorable snow fort in Quebec took seven 
shipping containers to make.

26. This Sri Lankan holiday cabin was built on an army base, and was made from a shipping container and other reclaimed materials, including old weapons boxes and timber from old bunkers.

27. This shipping container has literally been turned into a treehouse.

The best part is, these exteriors are 100% recycled, making this trend a huge step towards more environmental architecture.

These homes are a perfect example of how creativity can turn something mundane into something brilliant.
