Step inside this sophisticated container home with the smartest toilet

Crafted from a single, 20-foot shipping container, this home by Max Living & Design shows that no matter how small a home is, you can create your dream house. The eco-friendly home uses a water filtration system that recycles rainwater, and the pool is filled with nonpotable water.
Measuring in at 672 square feet, the home offers a spacious accommodation for up to four people, and the added details — including the floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that let fresh air in, as well as the pool and the beautiful deck — make this home even more memorable.
