Couple Builds Clever $20k Shipping Container Home with NO Experience
In our latest tiny home tour, we share a cozy modern DIY shipping container home on a dreamy waterfront location in northern Washington state. Matt & Paiton are a young couple with no building experience who decided to put down roots and build a tiny house to save money and invest in their future. Previously, they had a simple school bus conversion. Within a year, they built a 45-foot high cube shipping container home conversion on their developing 5-acre homestead with stunning river views. Impressively, their tiny container home itself cost only $20,000, due to the clever use of free and low-cost salvage and reclaimed materials.
They secured a low-interest lot loan for the land. Now their monthly payment is still $300-400 less than renting a local one-bedroom! 🛠️🏡 Check out Matt & Paiton’s YouTube channel for #containerhome build insights: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNMQ… 👉 And for more of their tiny home lifestyle, follow them on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mattandpaiton 🏡🏡👉 More #TinyHouse Design Ideas, Tours & Stories: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list…
