Welcome to the Backcountry!

Welcome to the Backcountry!

Nationwide Container Home Provider

We are a family owned and operated container home company. Using a combination of 20- and 40-foot containers, we create unique, functional, and modern dwelling structures. Founded by an aeronautical engineer, our container builds will stand the test of time.

We offer both standard and custom container structures. Our Standard container models are inspired by our most popular custom builds that have been featured on shows such as HGTV’s ‘Tiny House Big Living’ and our own DIY Network TV show ‘Containables’.

Whether going in your backyard or on the side of a mountain, all Backcountry Container designs are built to maximize their small footprint and help connect you to the outdoors.

With large workshops in both Texas and Wisconsin, we can deliver our container creations anywhere in the country.

Custom 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.


Commercial Builds

We can provide customized container solutions to all markets and industries, including residential, commercial, industrial and governmental. We have the experience and capacity to partner with businesses on any type of container-related project, large and small.
