Shipping Container Guesthouse Retreat

Dwell

We've been seeing lots of revamped shipping containers lately, but the living roof, big windows and great colors on this makeover caught our eye. This container is a perfect little escape for one Texas family, click on through to see all it has to offer.

This space is used as a guesthouse, playhouse and garden retreat for artist Stacey Hill and her family. Designed by architect, Jim Poteet, they installed bamboo flooring and wallcovering, a shower, sink and composting toilet, heating and air-conditioning and floor to ceiling windows and glass doors. Measuring 8 ft by 40 ft, it is the perfect size for an additional play space! See more photos over at Dwell.
