FINALLY some shipping container homage that I can dig. The prices are reasonable from what I can see, but slightly confusing given the price of the containers. The shipping seems confusingly high, I have to note. It can still be a pretty cheap turn key solution for people in a lot of areas where home prices start at $350k or more for a 2 bedroom GI house. It could run as low as $250k turnkey it looks like, depending on options etc. Compared to this place... that looks like someone converted a Sand Crawler into a house.

That's pretty good on pricing...The other advantage, if there are any to be had, with the container homes is that you can get away with a pretty low cost foundation.  I have been working with an organization that is looking to do some container cabins and we are looking at just setting them on these diamond piers:http://pinfoundations.com/

I think we are narrowing in on a design that is aesthetically pleasing.  I share your disdain for the usual state of these things visually. Can't for the life of me understand what's so hard about making them look clean and modern.

Somehow I can‘t imagine living in a container. Too much of a tin can for me.

It looks nice, but I always long for more natural building materials like wood and clay, since they make a nicer “in house climate” in my opinion.

But it is nice to check out what solutions are out there. And pretty inspiring nonetheless.

I finished a masters in architecture recently.

Working on a side project home for friends of a similar size.

Here's something interesting. These are mildly customized DIY sheds in various sizes and then shipped flat-pack to your address.
