It’s a tiny house...It’s a shipping container...It’s your favorite micro-home trends mashed up into one for $47,900! Whipped up by Missouri-based Custom Contain Living, this 312-square-foot abode is a brand spanking new tiny house converted from a 40-foot shipping container, with about a third of it carved out to form a covered porch.

While the structure maintains the container’s rigid, orthogonal form, it’s been given a sloped roof to accommodate two lofts inside. Both the exterior and interior have also been clad in cozier materials, including lap siding on the facade and stained pine and barn wood paneling and birch cabinets inside. Taking advantage of a rather spacious layout, the home fits a standard five-foot tub/shower unit, combo washer/dryer, and full-size dishwasher.
