Here is a 8 foot by 40 foot container home located in texts. Designed by Jim Poteet to be living space plus a garden storage area on one end, the entire thing is surrounded by well manicured gardens.
So I saw this today and it had such character and the reuse and re purposing of these materials is so neat I had to share. As most of us know, wine is often fermented in wooden barrels. Typically these barrels are oak, often from french oak trees, but what I didn’t realize is that they only last about 10 years and cost around $1000 a barrel! So this company takes the barrels which are often sold for rather cheap, straightens them out, mills then and the installs as wood flooring.
This is some amazing stuff, I am just blow away at the design of this furniture.
I wish I could find some exterior shots to this house, but as of now, no luck. This Tiny House sits pretty at 410 square feet. It really is just a big open area that has very well defined spaces by the use of colors and built in elements to separate areas by function. One downside I see is the need for a bit more storage, but their might be some hidden somewhere. This little house is located in Portland Oregon.
