Studio Arte Nomad Living, Portugal

Studio Arte creates small container homes as perfect weekend getaways or guesthouses. The interiors are modern and vibrant. Plenty of windows and sliders are incorporated to expand the space to the outdoors.

Cargo Container House, California

Set in a beautiful forest setting, this project, designed by Modulus, cost about $250,000 and used six stacked cargo containers. The feeling is more treehouse than shipping container.

Modern Shipping Container Cabin, Colorado

This stunning home by Tomecek Studio goes well beyond a cabin. It houses two bedrooms, two baths and separate guest quarters using a total of seven containers.

Weekend Surf Shack, New Zealand

MRTN Architects designed this container house to be a vacation home that takes advantage of the outdoors. Almost entirely off the grid, the roof is designed to be a water-collection system.
