Do It Yourself Container Homes -Get Rid of Your Mortgage

All you need is around $2000 to begin building one of these epic homes – made from recycled shipping containers! Check out some of these amazing creations!

A luxury home doesn’t always necessarily mean thousands of square footage, towering great rooms and gilded toilets. Take these homes for example: to begin building one of these epic houses, all you need is $2,000. That $2,000 will buy you a shipping container. What you do with that shipping container… well, that’s completely up to you. Some creative people have found a way to transform this rudimentary “room” with metal siding into luxury housing that blows us away. These homes are epic.

Why live in a home that you must slave for all day long? I love these homes and talking my partner into selling our huge dust collector home and building one of these. You can start small and keep adding as your needs grow.

1.) A shipping container doesn’t have to be a closed space.


2.) Blue container? Run with it!

If you enjoyed these what these people did with their containers then you will love this couple’s new tiny home.

The best part of the gallery that this Reddit user shared? The shipping containers are recycled materials, so you’re actually helping the environment if you invest in making a luxury shipping container home. You can’t beat a base price of $2,000.

    • Oh they have awesome ones on youtube. I have been watching those videos and also the Tiny Homes, it’s now my dream to get rid of this huge house and get a small house on wheels or just a tiny house with a huge property for farming 🙂
