Probably you have never considered living in a shipping container. Ever! Well now…That’s because you have no idea of how many advantages shipping containers have. They are relatively cheap, they’re made of recycled materials, they’re very durable and allow to be placed in different locations. The New Jersey architect Adam Kalkin however has realized these pro-s and has designed a very comfy and beautiful shipping-container-home. And he actually lives in it! Take a look at the pictures below and you’ll ensure yourself this is not as crazy as it sounds.

Kalkin doesn’t stop there and has designed an even bolder project – “Push Button House”. It is also built in a shipping container but this time it unfolds into a five room house at the touch of a button. See the video for more information.
