A Home Built From Two Shipping Containers

Shipping containers can offer very affordable accommodation and are great for remote locations. Even though they are technically a box, they can be converted in an infinite number of ways.

The owner’s plan is to build a cabin or shelter made from shipping containers. One which they can use during the weekend, but should be able to function during an extended stay, such as during times of disaster. It should be self sustainable and have all the comforts of home.

To achieve this, the cabin is tapped into the grid, but also has off grid capabilities. Solar power is used to heat water, along with an electric backup and, if needed, can also be done using wood stove.

The water comes from a well source. It’s delivered to the home using an electric pump, or hand pump if necessary. It also has an underground pantry that can hold a full year’s supply of food.
