Low Impact Container Studio in Texas


Description: This isn’t using shipping containers to build your dream house. Rather, it is one shipping container that has been turned in to a sanctuary living space with a garden shed, a happy place, full of colour, floor to ceiling windows, bamboo walls and floors, sunlit, fresh and modern interiors and an awesome red bathroom which inclues a composting toilet! This garden retreat was created for Stacey Hill who lives in Artist Community in Texas, USA with the help of Texas Architect, Jim Poteet. The base is made of recycled telephone polls – now that is what you call forward thinking!

Number of Shipping Containers Used: One!

Benefits: The fact that one singular shipping container can be put to such amazing use, it alleviates the pressure of having to use a few of them to create this huge structure. It is nothing short of wonderful that such a harmonious space can be created (for a fraction of the price, we are sure), whether it is for yourself or a place for visitors to reside when they visit. This would also be a perfect alternative to a granny flat!
