This 2,600 square-foot home in Kansas City was built with five, used shipping containers from China and designed by owner Debbie Glassberg. Referred to as Home Contained, the project has a green roof, spray foam insulation, passive solar design, and geothermal heating. Watch this video below with Glassberg providing a tour of the place:

A container home can be built with exposed corrugation, as with the Green Frame House, or it can be covered and clad, as with the MEKA Container House or Crossbox.

Some folks leave the shipping containers as is and drive home an industrial and edgy look and feel. But this home, Home Contained, has been dressed up with color. It’s somewhat nostalgic and vintage looking while still modern at the same time.
