While I love traditional tiny houses, I also enjoy seeing the weird and wonderful homes other tiny house builders come up with. In recent years, shipping container tiny houses have become more and more popular and I love seeing how creative people can get with these small spaces.
The Rustic Retreat XL is a 40′ shipping container tiny house built by Backcountry Containers, located outside Houston, Texas. The 270-square-foot home was featured in season four of Tiny House, Big Living!
Jon Meier, the owner of Backcountry Containers, built this custom Rustic Retreat XL for his sister-in-law, Emily Flowers. The container house includes a full rooftop deck, a large bathroom, and a closet that could hold Flowers’ 200 pairs of shoes. The kitchen has a breakfast bar, farmhouse sink, freestanding range, and apartment size refrigerator.
