Need a Cabin? A Tiny Home? An Art Studio? Shipping Containers May Be The Answer!

Local artist Derek Donnelly opens gallery made of shipping containers in Pinellas Park. The bottom floor is made up of three containers and home to a bright, spacious gallery and studio space. The top floor, also made of three containers, is the apartment, which has a kitchen with concrete counter-tops, a large living room, a bathroom, a bedroom and an office space. The seventh container stands vertically with a display window facing Park Boulevard.

Shipping Containers have been re-purposed for housing for a several years now. They are starting to be looked at as a solution to homelessness by some cities and their availability and relatively low cost make them appealing to those looking for off grid cabins. They are also being used by artists to construct studios and even to hostels in order to provide room for travelers.

Containers are stack-able, they can be connected to make larger cabins or homes, or a single shipping container can be used as the shell for a tiny home, all you have to do is design your interior, and run your electrical, plumbing, and so on, just as you would have to do in a model you have built from scratch, and you have a tiny home that is, by design, mobile. That is another benefit to using shipping containers for your tiny home or off grid cabin – they are designed to be moved virtually anywhere you wish. While they are more readily available near port cities, they can also be found at any number of warehouses, shipping yards, trucking company terminals, or they can be purchased online and delivered to you. While more attention goes to tiny homes these days, shipping containers are still being put to use and they are one of the most versatile options out there for a variety of needs.


Tiny living is still big

From homes on-the-go to converted shipping containers, these are the home trends that reigned supreme this year.

Homeowners once again rolled out the welcome mat for the tiny home trend in 2017. Stories about tiny homes were shared nearly 1.8 million times on social networks this year, according to Buzzsumo. In fact, tiny homes are now so popular, there are starter models cheaper than some cars, along with luxury ones, too (this design comes with a jacuzzi tub!)

Beyond traditional tiny homes on wheels, tiny living came in many shapes and sizes. This beachside house was built from a recycled shipping container, while some homeowners are even taking the tiny trend to the trees. This Atlanta treehouse was one of our most popular House of the Week features of the year.
