Incredible container house consisting of 7 modules for shipping.

In the collective unconscious, a tiny house or container house is a small house, ecological, made of wood or metal for a minimalist life… This description could be true when alternative habitats began to break into the world of construction. but today it is no longer necessary. It must be said that the cost of building an equal area with a traditional house is much lower. With container houses, it is now possible to afford large living spaces at very competitive prices. And this type of dwelling no longer necessarily means a small house, proof of this is the container “castle” located near Chicago in the United States.

This shipping container home features masterful design and modern luxury uniquely embodied in this incredible abode built from 7 massive shipping containers. Four large blocks form the first floor, and three others located on the first floor form the top floor… One of the roofs of the lower containers is left free to create gorgeous and huge terrace which overlooks the landscape.

Let’s take a look at the living space formed by the entire ground floor: the room is huge and has a living room with two large sofas and a coffee table. You can see two modern style metal stairs; the first leads upstairs, and the second seems to come from the basement. The decoration is discreet and seems connected to the world of aeronautics with metal, gray carpeting and a magnificent triptych depicting an airplane. In the same room created a corner for children, with a small living room and a wigwam in which to hide. The living room also appears to serve as a gym, as there is an exercise bike in a prominent position.
