Step-by-Step Container Home Conversion by Casa Cubed
Casa Cubed builds container houses in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. They post photos on their Facebook page as they build.
Building a Container Home
They start by cutting the openings for french doors and windows.
The exterior walls are clad in cedar. Cedar is beautiful, natural and durable.
They don’t finish the cladding until the power is finished.
Grilling Outdoor Kitchen
On the back they framed an outdoor kitchen.
Here is another shot of the wiring and cladding.
Here is the outdoor kitchen nearly finished.
And here it is complete.
The Weber Grill is built in with a natural stone countertop.
Meanwhile a lot was happening inside. The container is insulated. That makes it warm in the winter, cool in the summer and quieter, too.
Then any interior walls are framed. This is the framing for the interior wall for the bathroom.
Electricians provide power and Plumbers install indoor plumbing.
Next, the drywall is hung. Even for such a small space, it takes a drywall lift to get the ceiling.
Now they can start on the kitchen. The bar will be on castors, but the fridge is framed in.
Hardwood flooring gives the container house a warm feeling inside.
The Finished Container House
Casa Cubed can complete a shipping container home in as little as 12 weeks.
The bathroom has a comfortably sized shower.
And the toilet is also standard sized.
Casa Cubed container homes can have incoming water set up with just a garden hose connection and black water hook up for either septic or sewer.
The kitchen bar is on castors, so you can move it anywhere convenient.
There is enough room to cook in the open concept kitchen. The windows and wide french doors keep the house airy and bright.
The kitchen is more functional than some tiny houses I’ve seen. There is storage, an under-mount sink and granite countertops.
The stove is small, but completely functional, with four burners and a glass top.
There is even an oven.
