The Kennedy

40ft Container Home

Price starting at: $80,000

Inspired by the home we built on HGTV’s Tiny House, Big Living, the Kennedy is a 40FT container home.  It includes a bathroom, bedroom, living space, and a great kitchen. The Kennedy is available in two floorplans.

The bathroom features a nice shower and sink with large under sink cabinet storage. The private enclosed bedroom accommodates a queen-size bed. The well-designed kitchen includes butcher block counter tops with under counter cabinets and open shelving.  The L shaped counter provides for easy food serving and bar style eating.

This unique container home is perfect for a weekend Air BNB or residential ADU.
