Amanda Rootsey, Eco Container, Australia,

Amanda Rootsey is Australia’s first Eco-Mode
When we tell people that we live in a recycled shipping container they kind of screw their noses up at us, but the one we bought is actually finished very beautifully. As you can see in the pictures it has polished floors, a balcony, big sliding doors, a window and it is completely fitted out with 12V power.

Self Contained Topanga, California,

Self Contained Topanga, California,
Having purchased a 3.5-acre plot of land in Topanga, California, with a very rustic, 750-square-foot cabin on it several years ago, architect Christof Jantzen found himself in need of a fairly quick, low-cost house expansion for his family (wife Lauryn and three young sons). Jantzen, principal of the Venice, California, office of the firm Behnisch Architekten, soon came upon the idea that more space could be achieved by redesigning a series of recycled and modified shipping containers, which would drastically reduce the typical time-consuming process of a traditional remodel.
