Colorado Architecture Firm, F9 Productions of Longmont Colorado, recently completed the design of an innovative, one-of-a-kind custom home in Breckenridge Colorado, made entirely from shipping containers. This custom home totals 1,600 square feet of finished space soaring above a two-car carport and featuring three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and an open and spacious kitchen, living room, and dining room. The facade of the house is also flanked by a 562 square foot terrace that serves as an intermediate space between the natural and built environment.

By combining five 40-foot-long “High Cube” shipping containers and elevating them on a web of steel stilts, this project offers breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains in Breckenridge, Colorado. Large windows and sliding glass doors are placed along the long edge of the shipping containers, which open onto the aforementioned deck focusing the gaze on the majestic surrounding Colorado peaks. The large master suite and bunk rooms can also accommodate 4 additional beds, making this modular home the perfect mountain retreat.

This project marks the second shipping container-related projects for the Colorado-based design firm. The first was the head office and Headquarter for Eldorado Climbing Walls of Louisville Colorado. The main difference between the two projects is that the shipping container house is an exterior use of shipping containers in architecture contrasting with their interior use in the Eldorado project. The company expects construction to begin in the summer of 2022 with completion in early 2023.
