    The outside is hideous, but the inside is terrific, although I am not partial to minimalist spaces. But I would imagine its easy to clean and organize.

    • Jeffrey says:

      Ha! I was thinking just the opposite – what a let down the inside is compared with the design opportunities of incorporating the uniqueness of the exterior! To each his own I guess!

    Lovely! So airy and clean, but a bit rough around the edges so it doesn’t seem surgical, like some modern/minimalist spaces do (although….is that just a hole in the bathroom ceiling? Forgot to install a can light before the photo?). And I’m a sucker for a warm grey. The reuse of materials for the interior (e.g. pallets) is a nice touch too.

    I’d like to see more of the kitchen and bathroom and know more about how it went from shipping container to holiday cottage, what they used for insulation, materials, etc. Unfortunately the Eco Pig Designs website doesn’t have much more info than this post…

    BUT I would for sure consider renting this place during my next holiday in Cornwall! (…..One can dream!) 🙂

    Nope. Bathroom needs a door. Don’t care that it’s off the bedroom. It’s visible from outside the bedroom.

  • Wieviel kostet der Wohncontainer ?

    Love this home. Love the windows. Is any house surgical? Mine isn’t and wouldn’t want it want it to be.
    I love it just the way it is and adore it completely. I hope one day to have a container home, as soon as I’m finished with my wielding class. Great job!.

    Perhaps it’s a pocket door? Love this house – makes me wish for a simpler life!
