Come visit the comfy living area in a nifty container home packed with punch

Today, we're exploring one of the coolest container homes to come out of India.
This signature design from Me.Box relies on a single 40-foot (12.2-meter) container in its construction. True to the convention, its coziness packs a lot of punch.
Let's take a closer look at what this nifty little abode has to offer.

Who says a compact space can't accommodate guests? Not us, and definitely not Me.Box. There's even a place to fit entertainment essentials, like a sound system.

In a way, we've come full circle: A second sliding door makes the bedroom soothing and sound.
The Cool Cat lives up to its name, don't you think? It may be a minimalist take on container living, but all the essentials make their dutiful presence. All in all, this is an efficient little abode — ideal for those who are eager to embrace the simpler side of things.
