The Canadian company, Dwell Containers, has caught on to the idea of taking what was once forgotten and turning it into beautiful homes. By repurposing old shipping containers, they’ve come up with a design that can be either a tiny home or an office. The open floorplan has 160 square feet and with modern styling, they’re perfect for Millennials or anyone wanting a minimalistic life. The exterior of the homes is partially covered in wood siding and you can even have a large deck ordered for outside of the glass French doors.
This deck basically doubles your living space! And it would be easy to hang a canopy over the area to create a shady outdoor room for entertaining and dining.
Inside, the homes are basically a blank canvas with reclaimed wood on the walls and floors. The original shipping doors were left functional at the end of the container making it easy to move furniture and also letting you open the end of the home to the outside if desired.
A small kitchenette is at the end of the home with shiny white cabinets and wood countertop. There’s space for a mini-fridge to be slid under the counter as well. Or, if you’re going to use the unit as an office, you can instead have a desk installed in the same spot.
Since these homes don’t have a bathroom, they’re probably better to be used as an accessory dwelling, but there’s always the option to turn add a bathroom or even use a second container as a master suite! The possibilities are endless. To learn more, go to http://dwellcontainers.com/.
