15 Awesome Shipping Container Homes

Top 10 lists are all the rage now. Because, well, everyone loves a list. So we’re going to do one better by listing our current favorite 15 Awesome Shipping Container Homes.

It seems as though the bust in the housing market on 2008 triggered a move to more affordable housing. Together with a trend towards living with a smaller carbon footprint, recycling and repurposing everything from railroad cars as restaurants to fueling automobiles from used cooking grease, it only seemed natural that this trend of building houses from used shipping container would take off.

At first there were only a few that adventurous builders would make a container home as a lark. But now there are companies that specialize in turning shipping containers into not just single family homes, but also pop-up apartment complexes, office buildings and portable hotels.

So, below is our current list…which I’m sure will be updated from time to time as more amazing houses get built. But for now, enjoy the beauties below.
