Shipping containers and ADU’s (Auxiliary Dwelling Units) are as harmonious together as chocolate and peanut butter if you ask me. They are manufactured off-site, can have a variety of foundation options, size and orientation is easily adaptable to any lot or geographical obstacle, and they are remarkably affordable.
I want to build this one to live in!
Oh, and let’s not forget the shipping container swimming pool… what’s not to love!?
I like the mixed use of materials and textures – copper, galvanized steel, concrete, distressed wood…
Hoping that adding floor tile like this will lend to a more polished overall aesthetic and a bit less expensive Wild West minimalist “luxury” spa!
Excited to get started, its excruciating to wait until Aug. 15. It’s fun planning in the meantime.
This is the little house I am buying in the Alberta Arts district of Portland, Oregon.
It isn’t much at the moment, but I have exciting plans for a budget friendly, caviar taste quick rehab to breathe new life into this little cutie!!!
Stay tuned… 🙂
