Maximizing living space – novel approaches

living comfortably in a small space

It’s possible to create a great container home out of even a single container.  Don’t get me wrong – most people create a spacious building out of 4 or 5 cargo containers.  Others opt for a much more cosy living space.  So what’s it like to live in a space that size?

Well it seems to be something that people can easily adapt to if they do it in the right way.  Some of the solutions below are designed for micro apartments, but could be adapted to work just as well within a container home.   Not all of them come at a low price, but the extra space and convenience they allow they are likely to be worth the cost.

As always, if you have any suggestions, please leave a comment.

This space even manages to accommodate guest rooms.  Excellent use of space (although a little bigger than a single container so it might adapt well to a dual-container home).
