Shipping Containers used to Build a Houseboat

shipping-container-houseboat

Photo Credit Steve White

“The mantra for the 21st century is to do more with less, and many building pioneers are exploring how to repurpose material to construct homes. A new example can be seen at a marina in Belfast, where Brooklin boatbuilder Steve White has parked his new houseboat, constructed from shipping containers.” (source)

According to one of our awesome readers, Robert F., Steve White (the builder) is the son of Joel White who was known as one of the best boat designers. Joel’s father was author E.B. White (Charlotte’s Web). Interesting, right?!

Designed by Saunders Architecture.

“Summerhouse Aaland was designed by Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen in the Fall of 2002. This house takes the form of a continuous, long, folded wooden structure that incorporates all the functions of the house. Here we created a clear folding structure that flows up, down, over and under. This structure transformed into all the house elements: walls, floor, roof, seating and roof terrace. The house is created with ecological ambition: it is insulated with linseed fibres and the exterior wood is treated with natural oils. All the wood is from a local sawmill. The house is built on pillars allowing us not to cut any roots or trees.” (source)

Tiny Mountain Cabin in the Snow

I love the timber framing on this tiny cabin in the snow as well as the front porch. And since it’s really tall it would make for a great loft bedroom upstairs with maybe even a balcony on the backside of the cabin.

This is a vacation cabin at Emerald Lake Lodge in Canada. More info here.

The Hivehaus is a flat pack prefab tiny housing solution that seems pretty easy to build.

Since it’s a modular system it means you can customize as many or as few modules to your desire.

The cells are hexagonal so there’s lots of flexibility when it comes to designing and building your own.

The Hivehaus is inspired by a bee’s honeycomb, hence the name 🙂

I wish I could take you inside but this is all I’m able to share with you right now. This project was completed in 2009 by Richaven PLLC. They built a cabin, yurt and a breezeway to create a fully functional home of 1400 square feet. Interesting way to do. I hope you enjoyed!

“This combination cabin and yurt was designed as a multi-phased project.  The initial phase, the cabin, provided all of the core requirements for a minimum code compliant residence in a mere 232 square feet of space. The second phase included the design and erection of the yurt adjacent to the cabin.  The third phase included the design and construction of the breezeway connecting the cabin & yurt.  Richaven provided design and construction services for these projects.” (source)

“Loft House investigates cost/value ratios of a minimized footprint to wall surface. The small two-story house stows the sleeping space above the kitchen and bathroom allowing a double volume for the living space. Dramatic views are afforded from the height of the sleeping loft of the neighboring creek and landscape.” (source)

If the interior of this tiny cube house is confusing, don’t worry, I was pretty baffled by it myself until I read the description.

It has three floors, so when you first walk in you have to take the stairs to the first floor.

That’s where you have the living room with TV and the kitchen.

Go up another level and you have the bedroom.

On the top floor there’s even an area with a 360 degree view!

More info, photos and booking calendar if you want to vacation in the cubehouse here.

At some point in my life, I’m going to make it a point to make it here! I’d LOVE to stay in this house. How about you?
