For sale is my lovely reclaimed-modern shipping container house with a roof garden (8'x20'x8.5')...


The house is currently located in McKinleyville, CA and can be used as a guest house, studio, office, or even Airbnb rental. It has a bamboo-floored sitting loft with a pull-out trundle bed (full), space heater, kitchenette with a hot-plate, confection oven, full-sized refrigerator, and kitchen sink. It is insulated, has double-paned windows, sliding glass doors, and is electrical plug-in ready (125V). There is a front porch, rooftop deck and garden, gutters, rainwater harvesting barrels, and outdoor solar lights. The outside is rustic, as a used-shipping container is, and the inside is reclaimed-contemporary(90% reclaimed/reused materials). There is no bathroom in this unit as the original plan was to build on an addition that included a bathroom, either another container or a built addition.

Building this house has been a labor of love and I am looking for someone who sees the potential to expand this project to an amazing next stage. The house has won a couple of awards: Hung Liu Prize from Mills College Graduate Art Department and The National ReUse Contest from the ReUse People of America...It matters to me what happens to it so please only contact me if you are serious about purchasing, have a property to keep it on, and have an excited vision for the house. If you have access to a bathroom, and water/electrical hook-ups available, this house is ready to live-in. AS IS asking price is: $24,500 (house only, no land included). Some upgrades can be discussed if desired.

Feel free to email me for more details about the house and project.
