A shipping container


Page – 6: Born Rich – Cruise to the luxury lifestyle

How do you like the idea of living inside a shipping container? Kinda weird? But that’s not the case with the Adam Kalkin’s prehab homes made from shipping containers. The architect makes container homes that are good looking, transportable and recyclable. He isn’t the only architect to make shipping container homes, but what he creates is exceptional and luxurious. The best examples that explain his creativity are the Bunny Lane, his own home built with a 19th century clapboard cottage inside an industrial hanger, and the Push Button House, which takes just 90 seconds to expand to reveal a five-room home. Anyway, Kalkin charges $150-$400 per square foot for his container homes and the cheapest of his creations sells for $50,000.
