I Never Thought I Would Say This But… I Would LIVE In This Shipping Container. The Inside’s Awesome.

January 30, 2014 Entertainment

There are more than 300 million empty shipping containers just sitting around at ports all around the world, and with the rise of innovative green architecture they are being used more and more in the construction of affordable homes in poorer areas.

Poteet Architects, a Texas based architecture firm had the great idea that they could be used to create the perfect guest house too. Even fitting the container home with a fully functioning bathroom and a shower.

Interestingly, shipping containers are so cheap to make that when shipping goods from China to the US, it’s actually cheaper to continuously build new ones in China than ship the empty ones back after a shipment.

And who said shipping containers were ugly and boring?
