Cargotecture c192 Nomad, shown in these renderings, has been selected as the 2011 Sunset Idea House, according to information posted online by architectural firm HyBrid Architecture. The 192 square-foot structure will be on display at Celebration Weekend in Menlo Park, California this June. The tiny container house will have a kitchenette, three-quarters bath, day bed, Murphy bed, combo washer/dryer, and built-in closets. Nomad is 8′ wide, 24′ long, 9’6″ tall, and fully complete upon delivery. That means it arrives with windows, doors, insulation, no-VOC paints, plumbing, fixtures, and lights — all according to code. The shipping container home will be sold after Celebration Weekend and a brief stint at the Pacific Coast Builders Conference. The current sales price is $79,000 and it’s available throughout North America. A fully off-grid, off-pipe version, the c192 Pioneer, sells for $119,000, according to HyBrid.
