Container Home Book 192 – 1 x 40′ Type 1A Container Tiny Home – Texas USA

Todays featured Container Home Project was built in Texas by Backcountry Containers using a single 40′ Type 1A HC Container.

The Rustic Retreat XL uses a 40 foot container and is intended to be used as a spacious and remote camping/hunting retreat. Two different floor plans are available. The first option offers 2 separate bedrooms with the potential to sleep up to 5 people. The second option includes one separate bedroom and a dedicated gear/atv storage room with large exterior doors.

Both floor plans include a full bathroom with shower stall and a full kitchen with sink, mini fridge, and breakfast bar. Interor doors are all “pocket” style to further optimize space saving attributes. Equipped with a large sliding glass door, 9 windows (2 3’x5′, 6 3’x3′ & 1 2’x2′) and secured storage for recreational gear (optional, one less 3’x3′ window), the Rustic Retreat XL is the perfect getaway for you to embrace the serenity of the great outdoors.

Jon Meier, the owner of Backcountry Containers, built this custom Rustic Retreat XL for his sister-in-law, Emily Flowers. The container house includes a full rooftop deck, a large bathroom, and a closet that could hold Flowers’ 200 pairs of shoes. The kitchen has a breakfast bar, farmhouse sink, freestanding range, and apartment size refrigerator.

A barn door separates the bathroom and there are extra shelves behind the door when it is closed.
