Shipping Container Homes Book Series – Book 133

| By | Category: Free Tutorial, Profiled ISBU Project

Following  the incredible popularity of our digital book series – The  Most Influential Shipping Container Homes Ever Built – we  have decided to release a number of expanded  titles  for 2016 showcasing in greater detail some of the  best in Container based Construction from around the World.

Container Home Book 133 – Tiny Container Home – Jacksonville, Florida


Today’s featured Shipping Container Home is a Tiny Container Home based on 1 x 20′ Type 1A High Cube Shipping Container from SW Living Spaces in Jacksonville Florida

The container has a floor plan of just 155 square feet. It features a simple layout and has a somewhat “bare bones” finish; there are no fancy finishes or over-the-top luxuries, instead they’ve left the wiring and plumbing exposed with the emphasis being placed on function as opposed to aesthetic.

There’s a kitchen and dining area at one end of the home, and a bathroom (with a toilet, shower and sink) on the other. In between you’ll find a living room and a bedroom. The living room features a sofa that can be folded down to create an extra sleeping space, and, of course, being in Florida it also has an AC unit.

From the Builders: “We’re approaching the Container Home idea from a more philosophical standpoint rather than a design opportunity… There are certain ideals that we want to express as far as how we would like to go about our lives, and small, containerized, transportable spaces seem like a good fit to express at least part of these ideals.”

This is the 133rd Container Home we have featured in this format for our Readers. You can download the entire back catalog of all 133 Books, an additional 30 Container Homes in our “ The 30 Most Influential Container Homes ever Built” Book, a free copy of our 3D Container Home Design Software, Technical Drawings and Whitepapers and Access our Video Training Tutorial Series – in our Members Area.
