Most tiny homes are built on mobile home or RV, but this one here, built by Custom Contain Living, is not. It is actually a 40-foot container turned into an outstanding micro home. I know right? You can’t really tell it was a container, not especially when a section of it was removed to make way for an impressive porch, which should come in handy during rainy season. Maintaining the container’s orthogonal form, the top was raised with a sloped roof to accommodate two lofts within. From the images, the 40-foot Container Home looks deceivingly spacious, or perhaps it is.
At 312-square-foot it is not quite that spacious, but clever design made the most out of every square-inch of the area, which managed to create a full-fledge home complete with lofts that could fit a queen size bed each, a full kitchen with sink, a dishwasher, a convection microwave oven, a full bath with five-foot tub/shower unit and a standard size toilet, a washer/dryer, a 15 cu-ft refrigerator, a mini split unit a/c and topping off with lots of storage spaces. It is incredible how a tiny real estate could be made so complete and most importantly, enable an illusion of spaciousness. Perhaps the use of barn wood paneling in light tone helps and the array of windows on one side of the raise section also aid in conveying by letting natural light bathe the interior to boost the spacious feel.
And it has dual entrance, a porched single door on one end and a glassed double doors can be found along one of the length. On the outside, the corner fittings at the footing are the only telltale signs that it was once a shipping container. The smart lap siding on the exterior really did a good job in disguising its original form and the raise roof helps too.
Now for the good news: you can actually acquire this 40-foot Container Home with Front Porch by Custom Contain Living, but be warned it is not exactly cheap. It will run you back, in this configuration, at $47,900. That’s over 150 dollars per square-feet and excluding the land it is going to sit on. And since it has no foundation (likely so), it is best not to locate this anywhere that’s tornado or hurricane-prone areas.
