TAHOE NATIONAL FOREST CONTAINER CABIN

Greetings from California! 🙂

TAHOE NATIONAL FOREST CONTAINER CABIN

This is a great example of a remote off-grid tiny home. The land is privately owned but surrounded by the Tahoe National Forest at just over 7000-feet deep in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

While shipping containers are heavy and somewhat complicated to retrofit into housing, they make excellent building blocks that can be completed away from the homesite and delivered by truck.

As you can see by the photos below this couple poured four concrete footings, set the lower level container, then the upper container and capped it with a steeply pitched roof to help keep the deep snow off the flat container roof.

Made with 3 shipping containers, this container cabin is perfect for someone looking to get away from it all. Just look at all the beautiful snow in these photos?! Wow! I feel like I have been posting more cabins lately. Maybe it is that time of year that has me wanting to getaway and see some snow.

 

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