Daily Delight: Home sweet shipping container

01 July 2015 Reporter

You don’t need to pour a lot of money and materials into building a stylish home – sometimes, an abandoned shipping container will do just fine.

An American artist/designer has built a cheap and eco-friendly structure comprised of two 3.7 square metre containers separated by a shed roof and clerestory windows that fill the house with plenty of daylight (see below).

The home contains a living, dining and kitchen area, plus a double bedroom and toilet within an open-space design.

The exteriors have been left in their original battered state, which contrasts with the clean, contemporary look of the interior.
