The Freedom, built by Michigan-based Minimalist Homes, provides 300 square feet of comfortable living space in a shipping container. Shipping container homes have surged in popularity in recent years for the same reasons as other tiny houses: they are fast and affordable to build, economical to maintain, environmentally-friendly, and easy to move. The Freedom fits 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, and a full kitchen and living room into a 40 x 8 foot container. The home is built with top quality materials and insulated for maximum and efficiency and comfort in all climates.
The Freedom has hardwood floors throughout the home, LED lighting, and a high efficiency heating and cooling system. The kitchen has granite counters, full sized stainless steel appliances, and plenty of storage shelves. Large windows and a sliding glass door on one end of the home open up the space and bring in plenty of light.
The reclaimed wood accents and trim provide a pleasing contrast to the modern features throughout the home. Down the hallway, a large, contemporary bathroom has a barn door entrance and a tiled full sized shower. The bedroom has a loft bed with storage shelves underneath.
Minimalist Homes come completely plumbed and wired and need only be hooked up to electricity and sewer lines once on site. The container has a convex roof that sheds water and a rooftop balcony. There are many upgrades available, including solar arrays and rainwater collection systems.
Life is meant for living and living is about adventure and experiences! Our Freedom Home provides all you need to have a very secure and comfortable launch pad for your LIFE at a fraction of the cost and operating expense of traditional homes.
Container homes can be transported on flatbed trailers and either rolled off the truck with a winch or placed with a crane. The Freedom can be delivered to Michigan residents starting at $50,000 and installed on site to $60,000.
