Corvi Container Cabana

Corvi Container Cabana

We've been admiring this backyard container cabana by Mike Corvi and thinking about the "green-ness" of this new trend. We're seeing these prefab cabanas/sheds everywhere.

This Corvi Container Cabana, which was constructed from an upcycled shipping container (big points there), was profiled in The Oregonian recently.

Corvi bought the container for almost $3,000 and spent another $8,000 really spiffing it up. It's got birch plywood paneling, and is fully wired for electricity, cable, and heat.

We think these sorts of sheds/cabanas are an awesome solution for people who want/need to add more space to their home—a great, economical alternative to moving on to a bigger house and/or building an addition. However, unless they're being built as extra bedrooms or offices, we wonder how much use they actually get.

What do you think?
