Custom Container Home Builds

Backcountry Containers crafts custom container homes specific to your unique needs and location. By customer demand, what started as primarily single unit container homes, has quickly grown to multi-container custom homes.

With Jon’s engineering background and Kristen’s eye for design, our family business evolved to respond to our customer’s desire for homes that are tailored to their family’s needs. Using a combination of stacked or adjoined 20ft and 40ft containers, we will create your dream home.
