Shipping Container Living

This is on my bucket list - buying a few acres of land with a great view, trucking in a shipping container or two, getting creative with a multitude of heavy duty power tools and ultimately designing a unique, compact and functional hideaway from the world. Shipping containers have fascinated me since college when I did an assignment on their potential use in aid relief for disaster areas and also in high density student accommodation. With a little imagination and skill these rectangular monolithic boxes can be turned into a multitude of different spatial applications, on the smallest of budgets. For more Shipping Container inspiration you can check out my Shipping Container Living Pinterest board where I have started pinning some pretty amazing examples.

So, if your imagination was allowed to run wild in one of these box-like steel beauties, what would you create?
