Four Second Home Shipping Container Retreats

Shipping container homes are an ideal option for homeowners who are looking to invest in a second home, but can't quite afford a traditional build. These four retreats and vacation homes are impressive examples of economical and chic shipping container home design. Cinco Camp Cinco Camp is a five-unit shipping container retreat in Midland, Texas, twenty-five miles from the nearest town, and perfect for a tech getaway. This example is luxurious, as each unit is allocated for a specific living purpose, while other examples below fit all living areas into one space. Three of the five containers function as bedrooms (each outfitted with a shower) while the remaining two function as a kitchen, and storage/laundry space-- each unit is outfitted with an air conditioner to alleviate oppressive summer temperatures.
