    Postmodern shipping container home - images

    Renderings (not photographs) of a proposed postmodern shipping container home slated to be built in Joshua Tree this coming summer.

    The use of shipping containers as essentially giant skylights is clever, and I do like that outdoor patio and swimming pool - but I don't think this would be my first choice for a dream home. Looks like they're wasting a lot of space to make a postmodern hipster point about architecture.

    Also looks like a very fun opportunity for that one time I ordered a 4-foot diameter giant inflatable bouncing ball off the internet.

    There are lots of good uses for Shipping containers but I find them to be hard to justify for the main construction of a home. Maybe this reflects that I feel crowded inside any shipping container.

    I have plans to make my shop out of Intermodel containers plus my HHG vans by arranging them end to end with a 50 to 60 ft space between them will probably cut large sections out of the inside walls to make them more open
