Cool Shipping Container House You Can Build on a Cliff

Cool Shipping Container House You Can Build on a Cliff

This module house was built on a type of land that usually requires a bit of extra work to construct on — a rock cliff. But because the modular home sits on simple leveled cliff edge (picture above) with the overhang supported by simple blocking, without any sub-floor or foundation, the difficulty is reduced.

Of course, we might be a little swayed by this picture — how many people don’t want a view like this, or to have their house surrounded by trees and earth? That’s one reason a lot of people look into modular homes or tiny homes, I guess. You can put them almost anywhere, and lightly — they can usually be lifted out without much difficulty, too.

The architects for this one are WMR Arquitectos. Their a Chilean company (again with a Chilean modular house company!), and the house was photographed by Sergio Pirrone.

The modular house is based on 3.2 meter square wood sections with the entire house “skeleton” (pillars and beams) remain in sight when the house is finished.

The roof of this house is also a patio — a flat pati0 — and has an walkway onto it from the front side of the house.

Shipping Container House Design

Shipping Container Buildings April 10, 2016

Coming to us from Ek is this elegant shipping container house design — a symmetrical three-section modular home build that Ek shows seated in a tree-surrounded grove.

Do you need a place of refuge for a weekend or a comfortable residence to put in a very small space? Do you want to look at shipping container building options for the structure? If the answer is that you do, then you might have the Ek 007 written in your tiny house future blueprints.

Boasting a low installment cost and what Ek considers outstanding comfort for a 67 meter square living space, the Ek 007 is a low-height building with a thoughtful floor plan. It is based around a central atrium and is a “strong architectural expression in a small space,” according to the modular house construction team.

The Ek 007 can be enjoyed installed at a site on the sea or at higher, forested areas, and the modular construction has “all the great features.”

Behind the two spaces and middle corridor, there is a larger living area, kitchen/dining area, and foyer.

Shipping container house specs:

Family prefabricated house
floor plan together 67,20 m2
building area 92,00 m2
net volume 171,30 m3
gross volume 265,40 m3

The cost of this one is 36,826 Euro (not including VAT), the equivalent of just under $42,000. To visit Ekokoncept, find them in our prefab and modular homes directory.
