As its name suggests, this modular dwelling was inspired by the notion of having more liberty over living spaces, from their sustainability to the overall costs of buying and maintaining them.
Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, come take a closer look.
"Industrial with a flair for the sleek" is how Minimalist Homes describes the Freedom's exteriors.
For that minimalist experience coveted by container home enthusiasts, this 300-square-foot (27.9-meter) dwelling provides a quintessential exterior design that softly compels visitors to delve further into its inner workings.
Reclaimed wood was the material of choice inside, lining its walls and polishing its hardwood floors with precision.
The sleekness also comes in the form of stainless steel appliances. ​
From this angle, one can truly become immersed in the open-plan living area and kitchen's harmonious blend of rustic and contemporary elements. Wooden shelves, modern sofas, glistening wall tiles and granite counters – a myriad of textures and tones adding their own unique flair to their surroundings.
Those LED lighting fixtures are fascinating. As visitors venture into the hallway, an almost camouflaged sliding door draws them to the one area of the house that begs the most discretion.
That's the bathroom, of course, where every single bit of space has been meticulously crafted and composed.
Elegance looms in the bathroom, with matte silver tones enveloping visitors. A speck of color, in the form of a chic vase, softens this room's prominent dark hues.
The bedroom beckons guests to relax in a cozy, elevated bed. It's almost like a bunker with the bottom counterpart missing.
Upon closer inspection, there's notice a highly efficient storage facility comprising a clothes rack, shelves and plenty of extra space to be filled with living essentials.
