"Homey" isn't always the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the words "shipping container," but we think Numen Development, based in Houston, Texas (one of the world's busiest ports), has containers figured out. Take a look at these plans.
Ranging from $100 to $150 a square foot, these container homes (standard plans are from 360-square-foot studios to homes upwards of 2,000 square feet) utilize natural light and, often, highly sustainable interior finishes.
Numen Development says that using containers as a basis for your home can help cut building costs as well as time. They offer MODs (modified container modules) based on several plans, as well as custom container builds.
