See how multiple containers combine to create an extraordinary home

Built in Flagstaff, Arizona, the Flagstaff Container House is the first container home in the state, and it's featured on Boutique Homes, a collection of architectural gems, for vacation rentals. Created from six containers, the home provides 2,000 spacious square feet of living space, and it obviously isn't a tiny home. However, the uniqueness of the building is more than worth the visit. Just start by the dreamy, mermaid-green exterior gives way to a light, bright, and cheerful white interior two bedrooms.
Multiple patios and decks give you plenty of places to enjoy the outdoors and soak in the sunshine, and the eco-friendly home also boasts its own greenhouse. Solar power fuels the home, and bio foam insulation and dual pane windows keep the home cool during the summer and warm during chillier months. Check out the sun-filled living room, a tantalizing spot to while away the afternoon!

A modern kitchen is equipped with everything you need, including a sink, range, and full-sized refrigerator. Overhead, custom cabinets are space-saving storage spots, and there are plenty of drawers and cabinets underneath the countertops. Floor to ceiling windows let in a beautiful amount of light during the day.
The exposed shipping container makes for textured, funky walls. The dining room features an atrium design with an open feel and a light, bright vibe. Double-paned aluminum windows let in light without adding heat and the translucent element looks cool and contemporary.
A winding wooden and metal staircase leads upstairs to the bedrooms.
A sitting room divides the upstairs area and provides a small space to sit and relax.
Both bedrooms are generally sized, and a bathroom is centered between them for added convenience.
The second bedroom offers a white interior with colorful wall decor.
The bathroom has an oversized tub along with a shower, as well as a toilet and vanity on the other side of the wall, creating added privacy for users. Wooden floors look rustic and shabby chic, and windows let in glorious sunlight. The windows, skylights, and doors really let this home stand out and give it such an upbeat feel.
The upstairs hallway has room enough for seating space along with decorative cabinets or added storage.
Outside the house, you'll see a beautiful deck along with a container that isn't connected to the main house. This is used as an office space or an art studio.
