MINERAL POINT CONTAINER HOME

Greetings from Wisconsin! 🙂

MINERAL POINT CONTAINER HOME

Who else is watching the HGTV show is titled “Container Homes”? Since we blog about shipping container homes, you know we watch it religiously here at Dwell Boxes!  The first in the series is a MODS home built in Mineral Point, Wisconsin for the Spoors family. Homeowners Andy and Jackie Spoor had dreams of a big house that mixes country with contemporary. They wanted a designer home without spending a fortune and shipping containers could be the answer.  MODS designed and built this unique project in three months.  I bet this looks even better in person!

The home features:

  • Large master bedroom
  • Office/study off of the Master bedroom
  • Large walk in Closet
  • Large master bathroom with extensive views outside
  • Walk out deck from second floor to entire deck on the roof
  • Custom made stairs and railings made from container door locks
  • Stair treads and barn doors made from actual “Jim Beam” boards from Tennessee
  • First floor bathroom
  • Large family room with open concept to large kitchen with center island and DuPont Corian counter Tops
  • Custom made breakfast bar from entire tree and epoxy clear finish
  • 40’x10’ walk out first level deck made with recycled plastic
  • Laundry room with sink and shelving
  • Kitchen Pantry
  • High ceilings
  • NEST Automated thermostats and cameras
  • French entrance doors
  • Basement level includes walk out door to patio
  • Third bedroom
  • Full bathroom

You can find more information on the Home and Garden TV series Container Homes.  And it was also noted by MODS International who is selling a tiny container home on Amazon: A MODS home begins as new or lightly used steel containers that are then modified and outfitted in our factory. A majority of the work is done in off site, including removal of side panels, vertical beams inserted, cutting opening for doors and windows, and the insulation.  Container homes require some type of concrete foundation, slab or poured basement. When the outfitted containers arrive on site, they are lifted by crane onto the foundation, and then welded into place. The interior of the home is finished on-site.

 

So what do you think? Would you live here? 🙂
