We continue to discover for you. Our Shipping Container House on today’s tour is from Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica.
The construction of this beautiful house, which used 4 shipping containers in its construction, started in December 2017 and was completed in August 2018.
The container house is located in the Playa Hermosa region of Costa Rica. The location of the house is really great.
The house is in the middle of a wonderful green area and has a magnificent ocean view. Everything was considered while building the house. Patio, parking and 960 square feet ocean view deck.
The huge ceiling of the container house provides you with a very large area to relax. If desired, solar panels can be placed over this area and can be an even more economical home.
The second story features a living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and stunning ocean and forest views.
In general, we really liked the imposing structure of the house. It was bad not to have a large usage area inside as much as its outer appearance. However, it may not be a problem because it will generally be decked in Costa Rican air. It was a nice feature to pull a car to the area between the container at the bottom of the house.
Beautiful projects continue to come from Costa Rica.

This CR container house looks great! What was the full construction timeline and overall costs? Also, did the owner need permitting to build?
Very nice I was wondering how much it would run for three containers to put in as a house and what I need a permit and I live in the u.s. thanks
NICE JOB AND THE COLORS FOR OPEN ENVIROMENT ARE PERFECT. I BUILT WITH TWO IN TRINIDAD. HEIGHT, DECK, ROOFING IS A LEARNING EXPERIENCE, AFTER FLOOD. JUST READ THE COMMENTS ON FB.
Love it, have been looking into building one, but can’t find anyone to reach back out to me. Moving to Oregon and would love one built!! Can anyone give more information, etc.?
