When most of us imagine what our first home will look like, we probably don’t picture the outside of a shipping container. Instead, we picture a big house out in the suburbs, one that has a white picket fence, a big yard and children running around the neighborhood enjoying life.
A shipping container with metal sides and no windows may not be the dream for the majority of the population, but for those who are willing to think outside of the box, a shipping container offers a home with a great deal of utility. Being able to pick up and move at a moment’s notice is a wonderful feature.
While this container doesn’t really look like all that much from the outside, the interior is visually stunning and as the world trends more towards minimalism, tiny homes are beginning to take off in ways that we cannot imagine.
As it turns out, we do not need massively oversize homes in order to be happy and it is the simple things in life that allow us to survive and thrive over the long haul. For those who like to live a nomadic lifestyle, these homes offer them the type of flexibility that they crave, without a major sacrifice to their quality of life.
The photos of this container’s interior will definitely shock you and can you believe that this home even contains its own patio? This story goes to show that you cannot judge books by their cover and that even the most nondescript structures can have inner beauty that we never even imagined possible.
