Can't Contain Myself


Can you believe this home in Kansas City, Missouri, is constructed from five shipping containers? It's so bright and homey and beautifully decorated, you would never know it apart from the walls. It made me realize I could live anywhere: a shipping container, a house boat, an apartment with a slide. I'm flexible.

  4. I saw a container-house on HGTV once a few years ago... wow. Who knew that a shipping container could look a million times better than a regular ol' house. I need to step up my design skills.
