CHEAP SHIPPING CONTAINER HOUSE





Guess how much this house cost? $US 40,000. Seriously. Containers of Hope is the latest project by Benjamin Garcia Saxe and is composed of two 40' shipping containers set together with a raised mid section and clerestory windows. The discarded shipping container home was built for a couple who wanted to live debt free on their property outside of San Jose, Costa Rica. A simple skewed arrangement of the containers allows a view of the rising and setting sun and is perfect for cooling via natural ventilation.
