From tiny log cabins to modern micro-homes, downsizing home space is definitely trendy. One example of an amazing and quirky small house is this truly unique shipping container home. Backcountry Containers creates a container home called the Rustic Retreat that you're going to fall in love with. It would be the perfect home for a couple or a wonderful cabin/hunting retreat.
This 20-foot container home may not look like much, but it has everything you need. Plus, it will only set you back about $30,000.
You can even choose to add a deck on top of the container to soak in your incredible view.
There are several perks of owning a container home. You won't have to worry about the weather, because the containers are water and wind tight. They can be easily moved to other locations. Also, they are eco-friendly. All in all, their robustness makes them extremely safe in the event of inclement weather.
Besides a nice-sized sitting area, the home also has a kitchen area with open shelving, a fridge and farm sink. The wood floors and trim throughout the home add a rustic and homey feel.
The bathroom isn't too shabby, either! The shower adds a modern touch with the exposed container walls.
The shipping container home can work both on or off the grid. It can either be hooked up for power and water or it can run off of a generator.
