When it comes to building a home, there are endless possibilities. You can go the traditional route and build a home from the ground up using bricks and mortar. Or, you can get a bit more creative and build a home out of shipping containers.
That’s what one couple did when they decided to build their dream home. After searching for the perfect piece of property, they finally found their perfect spot in the middle of the desert. With no neighbors for miles and stunning views in all directions, they knew they had found their paradise.
Now came the fun part – designing and building their home. They decided to go with shipping containers because they were strong, durable, and could withstand the harsh desert conditions. Plus, they loved the idea of upcycling and repurposing something that would otherwise be discarded.
They worked with an architect to design a home that would be both functional and stylish. The end result is a beautiful two-story home made out of eight shipping containers. The first level features a large open-concept living area, kitchen, and dining room. The second level has a loft-style bedroom and bathroom.
The couple did all the work themselves, from demolition to construction. It was a lot of work, but it was also a labor of love. They are now the proud owners of their very own shipping container home and couldn’t be happier.
