12 Container House
- Beds and baths: 4 and 2
- Square feet: 4,000
Take a dozen shipping containers, stack ’em, add floor-to-ceiling windows and you get this huge 4,000 square foot, loft-like structure.
The 12 Container House, as it is cleverly called, was designed by architect Adam Kalkin and built in 2004 on a piece of property in Blue Hill, Maine.
There are three bedrooms upstairs and a guest room on the ground floor. Other amenities include two steel staircases, two fireplaces, a breakfast bar and radiant in-floor heating.
Want to see what it’s like to live there? You can rent out the 12-container house for $6,000 to $10,000 a week, according to the architect’s web site.
