Budget – Cargo Container Home

I was contacted by my client, to design the budget friendly, most off-grid possible home using a single shipping container as the base of the design, i used large windows full size to take advantage of the large rural view to remove the element of confinment in such a small space, by maintaining the structural integrity of the shipping container, it can be prebuilt entirely offsite and shipped and placed once the foundations on the rural property has been finished
