    I love houses like this, but the prices are ridiculous. Their cheapest basic-shell model is $22K or $150/per sqft (before what you lose in walls and insulation). Then they are claiming on their site that this home is much cheaper than a traditional home built the same way, that you are saving on structural work and unnecessary construction. Price for delivery at 3 or 4 dollars a mile isn’t included. I just don’t see any kind of deal or savings

    I meant 110 per sqft…

    I think if I were to fix anything it would be to seal up the shower to keep water from going into the walls. Other than that very nice. Great little cabin.

    The sink is the best feature in the kitchen but how in the world can you cook in a sink?

  • Dorothy says:

    I like the flooring and love the rooftop deck. I assume you sleep in the seating area? It doesn’t look comfortable for lounging or sleeping. I also don’t see anyway to cook and I don’t see a refrigerator. I do like container homes but this one is missing way too many vital features.
