Name: Jennifer & Abbie
Location: Carolina Beach, North Carolina
We live in a beach community that is growing quickly and people are building giant houses and cutting down all the trees. In an effort to show people that you can live in a smaller space, we built two container homes that are located two blocks from the ocean.
People were skeptical at first but seem to be coming around now that we are finished. The containers are 320 square feet with original mahogany floors and a mix of high and low end finishes. My favorite room is the bathroom! It’s huge in comparison to the rest of the space.
Thanks, Jennifer & Abbie!
