Inspiring Shipping Container Home Designs

Inspiring Shipping Container Home Designs

This cool shipping container home, designed by architect Adam Kalkin and built in Califon, New Jersey is separated into two parts, with a nice garden in between. The larger half is made of 6 repurposed shipping containers. The smaller half is made of just three shipping containers, which rest atop a concrete slab. The designers cut away most of the loading doors of the containers and replaced them with large windows to allow the maximum amount of daylight to enter the home. Other than that, the containers were left in more or less the original state, while the industrial look is also continued in the concrete floor, and steel beams and columns that can be found throughout the home. The designers also fitted the home with fir flooring and mahogany doors, which ensures that the home blends into the forest surrounding more easily.
