If you think shipping containers can only be used to build one-story houses, you couldn’t be more wrong. With one look at this amazing, three-story home, you will be convinced that this construction trend is definitely worth considering.
This container home is bold and unique, with a deck in the upper level, a carport in the ground floor and large glass windows on both sides to give views from both sides of the house.
Access is on the ground floor, through the door on the right side of the staircase. In this floor is one of the three huge 4.8m x 4.8m bedrooms. It has two floor-to-ceiling windows and fits a large bed, a long dresser, sitting area and even a TV in front.
It also has its own bathroom of 4.8m x 2.4m, with a toilet and shower separate from the double sink, so guests can use this bathroom as well.
The 6m x 4.8m carport is also on the ground floor, has a ramp for easy vehicle access and is even big enough to fit a tools or storage in there.
On the opposite side of the carport is the wooden staircase that takes you to the second floor. On this floor of the house, are located the other two large 4.8m x 4.8m bedrooms, which fit a King-size bed or two full beds. They also have space for a long dresser and a seating area or a Bowflex, depending on your personal interests. You will find the two large glass windows in each room allows plenty of light and takes in the views.
Between the two bedrooms is another 4.8m x 2.4m bathroom, also with a double sink and separate toilet and shower.
Stepping outside the bedrooms is a wide hallway that leads you to the staircase. Take the steps up to the third floor to find the kitchen and living/dining room. This space is 7.2m x 6m and has an open plan, which allows you to get the most out of each area.
The kitchen has a modern, sleek design with a counter top table island that fits five stools, perfect for casual meals. Although, if you plan on having a more formal dinner, the dining room comfortably fits a large table, useful for big family gatherings.
Speaking of gatherings, slide the glass door on the side of the dining room, and you’ll find the upper level deck. This space is perfect for outdoor BBQ’s, as it is so close to the kitchen, or can be used as a roof top garden; you could even turn it into a vegetable garden.
