Amazing Shipping Container House Design

Completed in May 2010, this 1,517 square foot, solar-powered house is located in Nederland, Colorado, USA.

This project questions the need for excessive space and challenges occupants to be efficient. Two shipping containers saddlebag a taller common space, that connects local rock outcroppings to the expansive mountain ridge views. The containers house sleeping and work functions, while the center space provides entry, dining, living and a loft above.

The loft deck invites easy camping as the platform bed rolls between interior and exterior. The project is planned to be off-the-grid using solar orientation, passive cooling, green roofs, pellet stove heating and photo voltaic to create electricity.
