20-Foot Shipping Container Transformed Into 2-Bedroom Home

May 8th, 2018

Once on a giant ship hauling cargo, this 20-foot shipping container has been completely transformed into a seriously impressive 620-square-foot home – and it’s for sale.

This gorgeous dark brown home looks completely unrecognizable from its former self. It also features two decks – one in the front which is 16′ by 8′ and the expansive back deck is an impressive 20′ by 30′. Imagine all of the entertaining you could do! It’s currently located in Terrell, Texas, but can be moved anywhere.

The interior of the home is modern and elegant.

The brand new kitchen features stainless steel appliances, including a double-door refrigerator, oven with electric range, sink, and dishwasher. A stone backsplash is a lovely touch that adds a bit of texture.

A large island sits in the center which also serves as a breakfast bar. Over-sized windows on either side of the home let in an abundance of natural light. Glass pendant light fixtures hang from the tall 9-foot ceilings.

Next to the kitchen, you’ll find the cozy lounge and seating area.

The inviting living room features a ‘chaise couch,’ which can also serve as a guest bed, bookcases, shelves, and two mirrors that give the illusion of a larger space. A shag rug, greenery, and floral arrangements are beautiful touches. By keeping the color theme in neutral tones, it helps keep the room from feeling cluttered.

Large sliding glass doors open up to the backyard and deck.

Open up the sliding doors to nearly double the square footage of living space during the warmer months. The best part is, you can move this shipping container home wherever you’d like – so, the view is up to you!

The main bedroom is large enough for a full or queen-size bed.

Both of the home’s bedrooms are carpeted, unlike the wood flooring found throughout the rest of the house. The bedroom features a ceiling fan and closet; this is also where you can find the washer and dryer combo unit.

A second bedroom has two loft beds for extra living space down below.

It’s always extremely important to take advantage of vertical space when you’re living in a small amount of square footage. Whoever becomes the lucky new owner of this shipping container home will inherit the loft beds upon purchase.

There are two bathrooms in the home – one full and one half. The full bathroom features a double vanity.

Two gorgeous turquoise glass sinks sit on top of a simple wood and plastic vanity with quartz backsplash. Four large drawers underneath provide lots of storage for toiletries and towels. The colorful sinks, however, are not the highlight of this impressive bathroom…

Remember that gorgeous stone backsplash in the kitchen? Check out this incredible stand-up shower with the same stonework.

The large shower with rain showerhead is by far one of the best features in the entire home. Can you believe that this was once a shipping container? It looks like a shower in a 5-star luxury hotel. There is a built-in shelf for your shampoo and body wash.

The simple half bathroom boasts a toilet and sink.

As like most half bathrooms, they are modest and basic. This particular bathroom has a vanity with storage underneath, as well as a medicine cabinet behind the mirror.

The expansive back deck has endless possibilities.

The large deck has plenty of room for the patio furniture of your dreams. You could even put in a hot tub if you’d like. Regardless, it’s the ideal place for entertaining friends and family. Or, just relax with a book and sunbathe.
