Hive Modular Holyoke Corten Cabin Minnesota Container Home

Holyoke Corten Cabin Minnesota Container Home 
Hive Modular, Mineapolis,
Rustic Holyoke Cabin is the collaboration of Paul Stankey, co-founder of hiveModular, brother Scott Stankey and their two wives. Two twenty feet shipping containers were purchases at $800 each to create a cabin complete with kitchen, dining room, living room with a wood burning stove, laundry room and two queen beds. The two cabins are connected by a middle section loft and roof made out of "(3) 4 1/2" X 11 1/4" fir beams made up of (3) 2X12's thru bolted and glued" and a glass door entrance. The interiors are furred out and insulated with rigid foam clad with birch ply. The cabin is partially powered by solar power arrays and connected to a rainwater cistern making this building an ecologically sustainable vacation home.
