Description

This retreat is a (somewhat) famous cargo container house project which has been featured on several television programs, including HGTV’s “Small Space, Big Style” and “Some Assembly Required.” It is situated on the wooded edge of a big farm outside of Seattle. The owner uses this completely off-the-grid modern cabin to get away from the bustle of farm activity, as well as for guests. Many sustainable concepts have been integrated into this container home, including using recycled containers, decking milled from wind-felled trees, and recycled steel in the foundation.
