This Is A Rustic Shipping Container Home With Style And Class!

Categories: Inspiration

It's something we're all looking for these days... cheap, effective, accomplishing our purpose.  How much room do we need?  At what cost?  Shipping containers have provided a rather inexpensive and heavy storm-proof metal structure, yet making them pleasing to the eye requires some great finishing touches.  Here is one that has taken those touches in creative style!

General info on how they're built:
• 20’ repurposed steel shipping container
• Ceiling height will be approx. 10’
• Front entry door will be a 32” full view steel door, will have knob and dead bolt
• Wired with standard Romex wire with a 100 amp main breaker service panel
• Will have required amount of outlets throughout, will have one hard wired smoke detector
• Will include one 12,000BTU air conditioner with 10,600 BTU heating combo unit
• Plumbing is standard ½ pex for water and schedule 40 pvc for drain
• Electric 20 gallon hot water heater
• Closed cell spray foam R-13 insulation on interior walls and R-21 insulation in roof

• Same vinyl flooring throughout
• Ceiling material will be corrugated galvanized metal
• No furniture is provided such as couch, TV’s, tables, stools, pillows and etc.
• All interior walls will be stained pine tongue & Groove planks

From the solid granite kitchen top to the sliding bathroom door...To the creative overhead storage and the pipe fitters stair rail...

A loveseat for a couch, some tongue and groove siding, and a few cabinets.... all go a long way to bring this metal structure into that feel-like-home mentality!

The flat screen on the wall, and just enough height make this bedroom space quite functional!
