A Solar-Powered Shipping Container House in Colorado

This off-grid shipping container house in Nederland, Colorado, is a perfect example of a modern structure that looks right at home in a rustic setting. Built by architecture firm Studio: HT, the home is made with two shipping containers straddling a taller common area.

The container "wings" house the bedrooms, bathroom, and office, while the common area houses the kitchen, living room, and loft. The loft deck allows for an open-air snooze surrounded by nature as a bed can easily roll between the interior and exterior areas.

Green features incorporated into the house include solar orientation, solar photovoltaics, passive cooling, pellet stove heating, and a green roof — but the best feature of all? Those expansive mountain views from the roll-up door in the living room!
