Shipping Container Home Utah

Laughed at by the first architects he approached, work began on his first concept using a 40' long, 9'6" tall and 8' wide container in the driveway of his Salt Lake City home. After two years of work (planning, groundwork and permits), the shipping containers became a modern 672-square-foot house.
