My name is Todd, and I decided to build a tiny home from a shipping container. I like the idea of tiny houses but didn’t like any that I have seen. I felt that most tiny homes are built to be lightweight and expect you to sleep in weird confined shelves. I designed this 240 sq. ft unit to be unequaled in strength , and being claustrophobic myself, to feel as comfortable as possible. I put in a full bathroom and full bedroom with 9′ ceilings. I wanted to incorporate energy savings by insulating this to an r-value of 30. All of the appliances are high efficiency and use low energy. The deck also serves as a rain water collection system. The water in the house is hooked up to a gray water system. A mini-split system is installed for heating and air conditioning. Overall, I wanted to use only quality materials throughout this build. I hope you enjoy.
