The exterior of this home retains its container look, but full-length glass double doors and two large windows create light and openness inside. An upper roof deck provides added square footage and a private respite to enjoy the outdoors.
The bedroom features a bed that stretches across the width of the container to maximize space. Under-bed storage offers added room to stash clothes and accessories. A wall-mounted flat-screen TV creates a comfy zone to binge the latest Netflix documentary.
Horizontal white shiplap siding offers a clean portfolio for the bedroom, which has windows on three sides so residents can wake up to the sun, if they so choose.
The kitchen contains a small but sufficient drop-in sink with an antique-style bronze faucet. Ample counterspace means there is plenty of room for a cute coffee nook.
The vintage-style barn door adds personality in the kitchen, which features an expansive window over the sink to let in the morning light. A roomy shelf next to the sink provides space to store the microwave.
The metal shipping container siding makes for a stylish shower surround, and an overhead rain shower creates a luxurious experience.

The rest of the bathroom continues with white shiplap siding for a clean backdrop, finished with a vessel sink and dark bronze faucet, hardware and industrial sconces.
