This is not a shipping container, just VIMOB, a cozy 398-square-foot modular home that features a timber-clad exterior and wood-finished interior. Inside, there’s living, dining, and kitchen areas that flow directly into one another for a more open feel, along with two bedrooms, as well as a bathroom located at the opposite end of the space. Floor-to-ceiling windows and patio areas extend these spaces to give them more of an unrestricted feel. Click here to view an actual shipping container home.

“VIMOB was meant to travel to remote sections of the world- its first prototype was placed in the lush area of Matapalo, Colombia.
