A Spiral Staircase Leads To The Rooftop Deck On This Shipping Container Home

A modern tiny home made from a 40 foot shipping container, and has a garage door and a rooftop deck.

Designed and built by Bob’s Containers in Texas, this modern Airbnb in Johnson City, was once a simple 40-foot x 8-foot shipping container.

The transformation included adding a rooftop deck, a hammock, a spiral staircase, and a large garage door. Let’s take a look around…

The exterior of the 320 square foot (29sqm) shipping container has been finished in a matte black with matching window frames, and wood accents like the garage door and main door.

A spiral staircase provides access to the rooftop deck, where you’ll find space for dining, a lounge area, an outdoor bathtub, and a net hammock hanging off the side of the shipping container.

Inside, there’s the main room that includes an open plan living room, dining area, and kitchen. The living room has a simple sofa with a wood base, the dining area has horseshoe artwork on the wall, and in the kitchen, custom wood cabinets are topped with a wood butcher block countertop. The garage door connects the main room with the outdoors.
