When I first saw container housing, I thought it looked pretty bad. But, since, I’ve seen some finished to look more like what we’re used to seeing a house look like, both inside and out.
This is the 40-long Alpine. You can buy it completely finished or unfinished. A 40′ container converts to a 310-square-foot home with three rooms.
There are two options,” I’ve Got This!” and “Hold My Hand.”
