Cúbica has designed Casa Cúbica, a compact dwelling built from a 20-foot shipping container. A 20-foot container has just 160 ft2 of space but Cúbica stretches it out with a short extension at one end. They market it mainly as a vacation home that sleeps up to four. However it would also be suited for full-time living by a single person or a couple, being complete with a kitchenette, full bath and even laundry facilities.” – Small House Bliss

How much do these sell for? Will they ship them? Where is the company? How much extra does shipping cost, if they do that?
The company is in Costa Rica. For specific details you can find contact info on their website here: http://cubica.tiltupsa.com
I’m always amazed at how gorgeous and modern these tiny homes/container homes look. I’d much rather have a small beautiful functional living space like this with each area having a purpose and a great looking design, than having a huge house and feeling ‘obligated’ to fill it with furniture.
I think the quality of the home is much easier to focus on when you don’t have a ton of excess like 2 dining rooms, etc. And I’ve been in plenty of those enormous houses so I speak from experience- it just doesn’t appeal to me.
Great pics, thanks for the post!
i love the shipping container homes but have always been curious on how they manage rain water run off. Any one know?
Le costruzioni di container sono incredibili e stupende! Io avrei un progetto interessante da sviluppare in Italia. Ma la burocrazia fa perdere la voglia di iniziare!!
