Container Home Rooms Slide In/Out on Tracks

The Shipping Container Home was still a new concept when Chrissie designed and built this prototype for her Architectural Thesis project. The home is made from a 20′ container and “expands” to be a 250sq.ft living space. When the home is not in use, or for shipping, the “rooms” slide into the container on tracks; a process that takes one person about three minutes.” - Chrissie Beavis

Essential Systems Pod – Shipping Container Contains Core for Simple Living

The ESP is a concept in development that could inexpensively simplify and speed-up the process of turning buildings such as barns, sheds, or garages into livable homes.  It could also be used to improve the lives of people living in substandard housing situations.  The ESP (Essential Systems Pod) is an 8′x20′ high cube steel shipping container that would be fully insulated, and its interior would be completely finished with full kitchen, bathroom, and laundry facilities.” – Jay
