Boat Builder’s Incredible 20ft Shipping Container Home

This design avoids the pitfalls of most shipping container homes. This one is affordable and has an excellent layout that can be easily extended into a larger home.

“A 20ft shipping container can be a challenging space to work with when constructing a home. Thankfully, with years of experience building super-yachts and racing boats, shipwright Evans is no stranger to working in small spaces and when it came to building his own home he has done a truly spectacular job of, quite literally, thinking inside the box.

Shipping containers make a lot of sense as a base for constructing a home. Structurally they are incredibly sound and because they are designed for marine environments, they are well equiped to handle pretty much anything that nature can throw at them. Most people, when building a Shipping Container home, will modify the container by cutting holes for doors and windows. In his design however, Evans has left the entire exterior of the container structurally intact, meaning this 20 x 8ft home can still be shipped by sea, anywhere in the world.”

Living Big in a Tiny House is one of my favorite tiny house sites.

    • That’s a new twist on housing. It goes to show how one building system will not fit everyone’s needs. It’s good to have numerous building methods so you can match the climate and circumstances.
