Shipping Container House
By admin • Mar 31, 2011
Debbie Glassberg is the owner of the Home Contained, a 2,600 square foot modern container residence located in Kansas City, Missouri, USA, that was built with five 40 foot shipping containers.
The final result is quite impressive: the home has comfortable living spaces, a green roof, geothermal heating, plant foam insulation and some passive solar.
Texas architect Jim Poteet had never worked with a container himself until Stacey Hill approached him about transforming one into a playhouse and a guest house.
Located in the San Antonio artists community, the house, made from a standard 40-foot shipping container (320 sq ft), stands in the backyard of renovated warehouse where the client lives.

There are some big benefits to this type of construction: very low end-price compared to traditionally built houses, assembled within a few days, easy to move and eco-friendly to name a few.
