This little shipping container house called “The Nomad” was designed last year for Sunset Magazine by Seattle-Based HyBrid Architecture.
The home’s shell is a used 24 foot shipping container that provides 192 sq. ft. of interior living space and can sleep four people. The house has a galley kitchen, a bathroom and several exterior openings. It can be built and purchased from HyBrid Architecture for approximately , 500.
If you’re the do-it-yourself type and a shipping container house seems like an ideal fit for you, you’ll be pleased to know that there is no shortage of them out there. A quick search on Craigslist will reveal that there are probably used shipping containers in your area. Here are some photos of The Nomad. Enjoy.
If you’re not the do-it-yourself type and would like to have one built professionally, then a company like HyBrid Architecture is probably the way to go. If you’re interested in learning more about them, you can visit their website at hybridarc.com.
