All photos 3538 Pecos St.
Location: Denver, Colorado
There are shipping container homes that look like masterfully spruced-up piles of steel boxes, and then there's this one for sale in Denver, Colorado, which appears so doused in contemporary luxe finishes that you kind of forget you're looking at a container home…from the inside anyway. Claimed to be Denver's first single family home constructed entirely from recycled shipping containers, the two-story, 2,192-square-foot structure includes three bedrooms, an open-plan living/kitchen/dining area, office with built-in desk, plus a steel spiral staircase that leads to a rooftop deck with panoramic views of the Mile-High City.
Inside, the home shows no trace of the corrugated steel surfaces commonly seen in shipping container homes. Instead, there are clean white walls, polished wood flooring, designer tiles, plenty of stainless steel fixtures, and frameless glass doors in the bathroom. Which way would you rather have it? Anyway, check out a time-lapse of its construction under these photos.
