This is The Beach Box, a shipping container house in the dunes of Amagansett, New York, off Montauk Highway. The home is believed to be the first in the Hamptons to be built from shipping containers and was developed by Andrew Anderson with six-modules from New York-based SG Blocks (the same company behind the Harbinger House).
So here’s the deal. The Harbinger SG Blocks Showhouse was bad out. Everyone I talked to loved it. You might think that a shipping container home would feel closed-in and constrictive, but this home certainly wasn’t. At 1700 sf, everything felt just right to me. I was able to sneak into the Exhibit Hall early enough to get some killer images (in case you couldn’t be there), so let’s talk a walk through the Harbinger House below.
