A Weekend Container Home with Chic, Rustic Style

Not all container homes are created equal! Our friends at Custom Container Living specialize in building custom tiny homes that have big style. They constructed this rustic container home to be a weekend get-away home in Oklahoma. We don’t know about you, but we’d love to spend the weekend here! Keep reading to view the full tour of this container home courtesy of Custom Container Living.

Recycled Chic

The home is an 8′ x 40′ repurposed shipping container with Cedar Lad Siding and multiple windows to give this home ample natural light.

Rustic Details

Joanna Gaines would be proud of this interior! Pine tongue and grove walls create a beautiful, white shiplap look throughout the whole container. The floor is a rustic vinyl called Featherweight River Rock LVT. This flooring is water-proof, durable and won’t shift during transport or seasonal changes.

Their home away from home even has a wood stove for colder nights and months! Talk about cozy.

Reclaimed Accent Wall

A reclaimed accent wall frames the door into the bedroom and adds a focal point to the living space.

The Kitchen

For a small container home, the kitchen is quite large. A full sized refrigerator, stove and oven keep this home functional. Cabinets line the walls for additional storage.

    Thank you for the post on this awesome rustic shipping container home. I’ve been thinking of buying a custom shipping container and using it for an outdoor office. These pictures alone give me so many ideas for the layout and design I could do. Thank you again, I’ll have to look into which companies can custom make shipping containers to my needs.
