Container Home Book 179 – 8 x 40′ Container Home – St Charles MO USA

Today’s featured Container Home is a two-story, 3,100-square-foot Private Family Home self built using 8 x 40′ Shipping Containers by Artist Zack Smithey and his wife Brie in St Charles Missouri..

Using retired shipping containers as a building material is both eco-friendly and economical. Smithey’s total investment was $125,000 (one-third the cost of traditional construction) including the land.

Much of the Home was built using recycled and re-purposed materials.

This is the 179th Container Home we have featured in this format for our Readers.
