This Ordinary-Looking Storage Container Is Actually A Beautiful Home Inside


By now, you shouldn’t be surprised at the idea of a tiny home. Made popular by shows on HGTV, gone are the days people are seeking out massive mansions. Say hello to the dream teeny tiny houses—as in, homes that are typically under 400 square feet in total.

While some might be appalled at the thought of such little space, others see a lot of benefits to the tiny home—low, if not no mortgage, an excuse to become more minimalistic, oh yeah, and not having to maintain and clean a regular-sized house all the time. That gets old, doesn’t it?

We’ve seen a lot of amazing tiny homes throughout the years—from this ultra-modern tiny house to this cozy abode that even has space for a little wine rack. Heck, you can even purchase tiny homes on Amazon these days (because what can’t you buy on Amazon?).

But if you don’t have the resources to build your own from home (or even the money to get one online), one of the coolest parts about tiny homes, we’d have to say, is the fact that you can build them out of, well, anything!

For example, one man named Jack Richens and his girlfriend build their luxurious tiny home out of a regular old camper van. They really got creative with it, even using a row of swivel chairs as car seats and dining room chairs. They face forward when on the road, and pivot backwards during mealtime, creating a makeshift dining room set-up.

But nothing quite beats this tiny home made out of a shipping container. And the best part of all: It can be yours!

Currently available for sale in Texas for just $40,000, this tiny home puts others to shame, measuring at 40′ x 8′ x 9.6′ with an interior of a mere 320 square feet. If you think that’s too small even for a tiny home, guess again: The place is being sold completely furnished.

The kitchen has a full-size refrigerator, sink and rows and rows of cabinets and shelves to store your dishes, silverware and whatever else you need. In fact, there may even be more than some people have in their standard-size kitchen! On top of that, there’s also space for a small table to enjoy meals.

Next to the kitchen is a comfy living room, complete with a sofa and TV, all decorated with warm neutral tones and accent pieces. The bedroom is off the living room, which can fit a pretty large bed. That’s right, you’re not sacrificing any sleep when you live in a tiny space!

Lastly, the home even includes appliances such as a washer and dryer, toilet, tankless water heater, and a ductless A/C and heating system.

Best part of all? The home will get delivered to you completely free if you’re within 1,000 miles of Beaumont, Texas. Now that’s what we call a deal! Photos can only do so much—to see the shipping container home for all it’s worth, check out the video below.
