Using shipping containers as something other than cargo carriers is a very popular idea these days. They are perfect for temporary facility like, for example, vacation rentals. They are cheap and can be installed only a few meters away from the beach. Plus they can be modified in different creative ways and look awesome. This one is a perfect example of it.
Just a short walk away from the warm, sandy beaches in Carolina Beach, NC, are two large shipping containers.
They are much more than storage units, however.
They are modern structures, packed with everyday amenities, and they’re ready for visitors!
There are two almost identical shipping containers that act as vacation homes for North Carolina visitors.
The shipping containers are named the Conchs and comfortably fit two adults and one child.
They were created by the owner, Shelly, in an effort to offer a unique, low-profile vacation rental for visitors.
The two shipping contains are located on adjoining lots so they can be rented together or separately for couples who are looking for a simpler type of getaway.
Although the containers only measure out to be 320 square feet, there’s more than enough space for visitors to live comfortably.
The bathrooms are spacious and include all the normal things you’d expect from a hotel stay.
Shelly even provides her guests with organic linens!
The care put into creating the Conchs is evident when you look around at the details.
The floors are all mahogany hardwood, the countertops are post-consumer recycled Paperstone.
The shipping containers are located in an offset, quiet place so there’s plenty of privacy to enjoy the outdoor shower and lounge on the deck!
These unique shipping containers offer a one-of-a-kind vacation for anyone willing to think a little outside-the-box!
