Ever since shipping container homes became a thing architects, designers and even private home owners have made incredible progress in making this sort of projects more accessible, customizable and simpler overall. There’s this one shipping container house that stands out. It’s a home built by a Colorado firefighter for himself and his family. It’s meant to be multi-generation home so it had to be plenty spacious. The owner collaborated with architect Joe Simmons from Bluesky Studio on the design.
