Here you go...a truly one of a kind, shipping container cabin! This little beauty is the brainchild of Hive Modular architect Paul Stankey and his wife Sarah Nordby. Built in northern Minnesota, this "family cabin" is an exploration of ready-made products, recycled materials and shipping containers within a very tight budget.
Set in the woods, this container cabin has a great modular feel...and the large window in the middle is very cool allowing tons of natural light to enter the structure. Great use of existing materials...I definitely like this container cabin more than some of the larger container developments I have seen in the past. They used the containers to build and complement the overall design but still incorporated other materials like glass and wood to finish the job. Great work! I definitely want one of these things!
I actually came across these pictures last night on flickr. I noticed that the guys who posted them, matt olsen and mike brady, are designers for rosenlof lucas, a modern design firm interested in sustainable solutions for outdoor spaces. They blog at rolu dsgn.
