The Clark

Two 40ft Containers Home

Price starting at: $149,000

Inspired by the home we built in Episode 3 of our show Containables, Clark is a home built from two 40FT containers welded together. This home has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and an open living, kitchen, and dining space.

Both bathrooms feature walk-in showers and sinks with storage. The private, enclosed bedrooms can both accommodate a queen-size bed. The kitchen includes butcher block countertops with under-counter cabinets and is laid out in an open concept with the adjoining living room, perfect for entertaining!

This unique container home is perfect for a permanent residence, weekend air bnb, or residential ADU.
