5 Awesome Shipping Container Retreats
The Costa Rican firm Cubica designs and specializes in converting shipping containers into small, functional vacation homes and retreats. Their basic model is built from a 8.5-by-20 foot shipping container, with a great interior layout. The interior space is subdivided into three areas all of which can also be used for sleeping. The main living area contains a full-sized Murphy bed, while there are also twin bunks located at one end of the shipping container. There is also a spacious bathroom, which can be accessed from both inside and outside. These houses area available for rent through the Casa Metta hotel in Costa Rica, which offers a great opportunity to try out shipping container living.
