Check out the BEFORE and AFTER of our shipping container home! With hard DIY work, we turned a used shipping container into a tiny house. The shipping container sits on 7 acres of land in Upstate New York next to our vegetable garden and green house. With fresh paint, new flooring and colorful furniture we were able to make our dream vacation home on a small budget!
Well you guys……it’s done (for now!). Here’s our Shipping Container Home Reveal!
A quick little note about the project if you’re a new reader. We bought land in Upstate New York to build a eco friendly weekend home. We’ve always been interested in recycling a shipping container to use for a Summer getaway, so that’s what we did. The shipping container sits on 7 acres of land, next to our vegetable garden and greenhouse. The goal of this project was to make a simple, economic getaway so we could run away from NYC on weekends and unplug. The entire project took about a year and a half but it would have went quicker if we didn’t get pregnant and have a baby in the middle of it! Also Winters are brutal in Upstate New York so we didn’t get up much during those months. We have thoughts of expanding the shipping container into 2 or 3 stories and making one side of it all glass windows but we’re still unsure of our next step. For now, it serves it’s purpose so enjoy the reveal! Thanks to Hayneedle for working with me on this project!
