A mid century modern TINY SHIPPING CONTAINER HOME

Not too shabby for something that was slapped together and outfitted in TWO DAYS! This was the (somewhat recent) finale competition on the program Design Star All Stars, and while I didn’t see a single other episode of the show (I don’t have cable tv), and hear that the overall track record of the show’s winner was better, I still think, as far as this last contest went, contestant Hilari Younger got robbed. I dug this entry over the others by far- in its use of a VERY limited space (7′ by 20′ on the interior), and the bold use of color and accessories/furnishings it employed. Nothing I would personally choose to live in, style wise, but its just fun and ballsy at the same time.

 Here are FIVE books dealing with shipping container architecture and pre-fabricated and eco-housing….some deal with tiny, and/or small/modest sized houses too….just some books/links to peruse…

VERY cool use of space-wonder where they go-pee and cook dinner though…

Easy access is what shipping container homes are all about, its simplicity and its cozy feel of being a battle station home.

I wonder the same. For some reason baths are almost never given the importance in decor, as if any one could live without it lol
