This beautiful home in Colorado has it all. It’s built from old shipping containers, has great views, it fully off-grid, and isn’t overly rustic. I love how they kept the character of the shipping containers, and didn’t try to hide it at all. It really makes the home!

Maison Container Lille is a beautiful shipping container home built in Lille, France by architect Patrick Partouch. It required only 3 days of on-site construction, and the eight containers combine to create 208 sq meters of living space (that’s 2240 sq ft to us Americans). The outside is a beautiful fire engine red is offset with large window and wood privacy panels to create a wonderful look from the outside. The inside? Decide for yourself – but I’ll give you a hint: It’s awesome.

I love this shipping container home. Located just outside of Houston, it barely looks like there are shipping containers included in the design at all, but without any outward attempt to hide them. The 1,858 sq ft home also has one of my favorite design implements: a breezeway!

I just want to see the look on my their friend’s faces when they tell them they have to sleep in the shipping container. I think once they see it, they probably get pretty excited about sleeping out there.

It’s no secret that I love the idea of building with shipping containers. Just plop them down, hook up some wiring, and you’re good to go! Okay, not exactly. But it would be reassuring to know that the walls aren’t going to fall over in the next windstorm.

Here’s another example of a great use of a shipping container. Used to house a San Antonio artist’s studio, guest room, play room and garden shed, it looks warm and inviting, doesn’t it?
The wood floors and walls and the floor to ceiling windows really liven up the space. I love it!

Though this design is made from two modular section built with a floating ceiling between them, it’d also work with shipping containers or ready-made building materials. It’s a great design – living area and kitchen in the middle, separate sleeping areas on either side!

Shipping container homes don’t need to look like shipping container homes, and this home called “Crossbox” is a perfect example. This house looks awesome, don’t you think? And as great as the exterior is, the interior is even better!

There are a few groups looking to quickly build cheap emergency shelters in area hard hit by recent disasters, and they need your help. In Haiti, groups such as Shipping Container Housing and Green Container International Aid are trying to reuse old shipping containers to get people out of the elements and into housing that can withstand hurricanes, and they are seeking the donation of containers to get started.
On a much more selfish note, I kind of like the way these shipping container shelters look. They’re a little cobbled together, but they are totally green, very functional, and kind of fun.
