Royal Oak Shipping Container House (Interior Photos)

Shipping Container Buildings December 18, 2016

Royal Oak Shipping Container House

Another striking shipping container designed house. This one really looks modern and clean-lined. It’s owned by one Aaron Schnepp, and its the 2350 sqare foot Royal Oak Shipping Container House, built by Michigan-based C3 UP.

How many shipping containers were required to build this fairly large structure?

A total of seven containers

But they’ve done quite a bit to add to the style since construction: replacing the siding with wood (instead of the original vinyl), adding privacy screens, stair railings, and wood finishes to parts of the interior.

According to Schnepp:

“I’m concerned that people are going to think we hate the house. But it’s not that at all; we love it. If the house doesn’t sell, we’ll happily live here for the next 10 years. It’s because I’m so picky. The floor color is light brown, and I want it dark brown. Most people wouldn’t care, but I do.”

Price? According to C3 UP, they can make tiny container homes that start at $31,500, and full-size shipping container houses like Schnepp’s start at $125,000.
