Have you wondered what it's like to live in a shipping container home? This light, bright, modern 392 sf micro home is made from a single 45 ft container! It's comfortable, conveniently located, & fun!
Please read the "Other Things to Note" at the very end of this profile to make sure that the property is a good fit for you.
Everything about this property is unique!
Created from a single 45 ft shipping container, it only has 392 sq. ft., but it lives much larger (the designer once had 12 person dinner party in the house!).
Early on, it was nicknamed it the 360. This came from the square footage of the original container before modification; we liked the connotation of looking at things from all angles. The name stuck. :-)
The 360 is a studio, so the beds are both in the main space. The master bed is a traditional queen sized mattress in a bed nook (this means there is access from one side of the bed) and the guest bed is a queen size futon mattress. The base for the guest bed is converted from the base of the closet (not unlike a pullout couch). Soft high thread count sheets are provided for both beds.
The space has a jacuzzi tub, 17 linear feet of kitchen for cooking, and 160 sq ft of balcony!
For those with pet allergies: no pets currently live in the house, but a kitty lived here in the past.
This charming little home has been featured in magazines and on TV. I hope you also find it inspiring!
Toegang voor gasten
You have access to everything in the 360, the 360 balcony, and the patio space beneath it.

You will access the home via a key box on the front gate. We will be available via phone for any questions or needs, but will give you your space.
Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
The main access for the 360 is a spiral staircase and there is a step to get into the jacuzzi tub/shower. Due to this, my home is not well suited to those with limited mobility.
There are two dogs who live on the property. They are super sweet, and will be excited to meet you. If you are afraid of dogs, their presence might make staying here unpleasant for you.
In addition to the dogs, you'll share the yard with us and our guests (including tween-agers). This means that we may be out in the yard swinging, creating, jumping on the trampoline, etc. Kids get up early (even on Saturday). :-) If that kind of activity occurring just out your door will be disruptive to your stay, then this might not be a great fit.
Henrietta, Ruby, Aurora & Diamond are the 4 chickens that live in the yard behind the 360. You will definitely hear them making chicken noises throughout your stay. The clock radio has a bluetooth feature and you can play background white noise via YouTube or spotify if they are feeling squacky. If you are fan of eggs, let us know.
The 360 is in a relatively urban area and so you might also hear urban sounds like cars, dogs, occasional sirens, 18 wheelers, etc.
Parking: Street parking is available right in front of the house. Please don't leave valuables in plain sight inside your car. There has only been one car broken into in the 8 years that we have been here, but it occurred when someone left a backpack in view.
- There is a house book on site and we ask that you read it upon arrival.
- The apartment is on a shared lot - please use the front door if you have an urgent need.
- Trampoline, playscape, chicken area and all areas of the main house (deck, hot tub, etc.) are off limits.
- The 360 deck and the patio area under the 360 are available for your use.
