Archistock / House Plan #000-005: Modern Minimalist Container House Plan
Our Modern Minimalist Container House Plan is approximately 340 sq ft (gross area). We design it with a minimalist and tiny living in mind. Most of the furniture is built-in. We tend to use sliding doors that can always open all day to emphasize spaciousness. The design of this container house features a private sleeping area with a study nook, spacious bathroom with shower, large functional kitchen with a dining area, a seating area with sofa, and ample of storage space. It’s quite a steal considering its tiny size, isn’t it?
Material-wise, we tend to use light color scheme / finishes as white paint and light oak for the interior. If you want it to be homier and less industrial, we suggest to apply wood cladding on the exterior walls. Alternatively, you can use the original skin of the container and simply paint it. Both light and dark tones shall work.
Interior / Exterior Material Finishes
This modern minimalist container house plan also feels more spacious thanks to its seamless outdoor-indoor flow / layout. We provide a large outdoor patio on the front side, as well as a smaller deck on the back side next to kitchen. Both decks are with large sliding patio doors that you can leave open during the day. There is also a big window at the bedroom overlooking the landscape.
If you are hosting guests, the outdoor becomes a part of your home. We suggest to have an outdoor seating area with a fire pit for entertaining at the front.
Simple and Affordable Structure
To build this small living unit, you would only need one 40’ x 8’ x 8’-6” container with a 1-side door opening. This type of container is pretty common and economical. You can either buy a second hand one or a brand new one, depending on availability and prices. This modern minimalist container house plan is suitable for a flat land. Simple foundation / footings or concrete slab system shall work.
Purchasing this Modern Minimalist Container House Plan
This house plan is available for purchase, either the original design or modified version. We can modify the architectural design and drawings to suit your needs. For example: reshape and resize the house so it can fit your land, rearrange the rooms and internal layout to fit your family needs and requirements, or modify the facade design, windows and roof.
