Magnificent House Made from 2 Shipping Containers
Sustainability and innovative design are some of the concepts that come to mind when container homes are mentioned, quickly gaining popularity in the architectural world. One of the finest examples of this trend is this marvelous home, located just north of Waco in a secure rural neighborhood, transformed from two shipping containers!
This unique home originated from two shipping containers of 20 and 40 feet. The interior was insulated with pine shiplap, creating a natural atmosphere and enhancing the functionality of the space. The panels were crafted from barn wood over 100 years old, adding a historical touch to the place.
The exterior, on the other hand, is clad with spaced cedarwood, preserving the original structure of the container. This approach resulted in both a modern and rustic appearance. The entrance to the house can be made either through the original container doors or a standard side door. Steel panels were removed from the doors and replaced with picturesque full glass, making the space brighter and more spacious.
The fun roof terrace in the house offers unforgettable moments for visitors. Surrounded by a private wired railing system, the terrace is illuminated by LED lights at night, providing a romantic glow to the veranda. Access to this terrace and the upstairs bedroom is provided by an external spiral staircase.
The location of the house is in a safe rural neighborhood just north of Waco, close to I-35. This area, surrounded by trees and with nearby cattle grazing, offers natural tranquility. Guests can also use the lawns around. The Homestead Cafe and Craft Village located near the house is a great alternative for shopping and dining. This place, only 3 minutes away by highway, facilitates life in the area.
Parking is available right next to the house, and Uber service is also available in the area. The owners of the house, living just around the corner, are available to assist guests with anything they need. If possible, they will try to meet with you to show the house, but there is also the option for self-entry with a code that will be sent to you on the day of arrival.
